There are many awesome platforms to help you take your Gatsby website. Here are the instructions for Hosting Gatsby websites available on Gatsby's docs.
To take full advantage of Wade you need to host with Netlify, where you can pair with Netlify CMS to manage the content otherwise you can always use markdown and JSON files to manage content and settings.
Once you have finished adding content your need to create a Github Private Repository. This repository should have contents from the
starter folder we created.
- Click New site from Git
- Connect your Github account
- Search and Select your repo.
- Leave build settings as default and Click Deploy
Your site deployment process will start and the website will be live in few minutes. Netlify will you give your site URL. for example
- In GitHub, go to your account Settings, and select OAuth Apps under Developer Settings.
- Select Register a new application.
For the Authorization callback URL, enter
https://api.netlify.com/auth/doneand homepage URL must be your Netlify site URL, and The other fields can contain anything you want.
When you complete the registration, you’ll be given a Client ID and a Client Secret for the app. You’ll need to add these to your Netlify site:
- Go to Site settings > Access control > OAuth.
- Under Authentication Providers, select Install Provider.
- Select GitHub and enter the Client ID and Client Secret, then save.
- Goto to your-site.netlify.app/admin/, and log in with your Github account.
You can read more about using OAuth provider tokens on your Netlify site here: https://docs.netlify.com/visitor-access/oauth-provider-tokens/#setup-and-settings
