Today, I opened the source code to this blog on GitHub! 🎉
The previous iteration of this application, a Ruby on Rails app, was open source, and so open-sourcing its successor made sense to me. It’s an example of a simple React/Gatsby developer’s blog.
Inside this codebase, you’ll see bones of the Gatsby Starter Blog. I’ve added Prism.js, Cypress integration tests, some helpful commands, marketing pages, and a few styles.
A dev blog can be simple. I’ve integrated Heroku and GitHub, so every time I push to master, the app is deployed. This allows me to make changes on GitHub with my phone, or merge Dependabot PRs, and deploy to production automatically.
I hope someone finds it helpful.
