Gatsby Airtable Advanced Starter

This is a blog starter skeleton for Gatsby v2 using Airtable as source.

This project aims to provide a minimal base for building advanced GatsbyJS powered blog, without UI limitations.

NOTE: This project is based on Gatsby Advanced Starter, thanks Vagr9K for the inspiration.


🚀 Here a LIVE DEMO of the site.

These are the airtable bases used to generate posts and authors:
