If you want to learn more about how you can use a Gatsby starter that is configured with a Gatsby theme, you can checkout this shorter or longer tutorial. The tutorials don’t exactly apply to this starter however the concepts are the same.

📝 Using and modifying this starter

Important Note: Please read the guide Shadowing in Gatsby Themes to understand how to customize the underlying theme!

This starter creates a new Gatsby site that installs and configures the theme @lekoarts/gatsby-theme-cara.

Have a look at the theme’s README and files to see what options are available and how you can shadow the various components including Theme UI. Generally speaking you will want to place your files into src/@lekoarts/gatsby-theme-cara/ to shadow/override files. The Theme UI config can be configured by shadowing its files in src/gatsby-plugin-theme-ui/.

Changing content

The content of this project is defined in four .mdx files inside the theme’s sections folder. You can override the files intro.mdx, projects.mdx, about.mdx and contact.mdx. This starter has overriden the intro.mdx file as an example. Place the other files in the same src/@lekoarts/gatsby-theme-cara/sections/ folder.

You have to use the <ProjectCard /> component inside projects.mdx to display the cards. Example:

## Projects

<ProjectCard title="Freiheit" link="https://www.behance.net/gallery/58937147/Freiheit" bg="linear-gradient(to right, #D4145A 0%, #FBB03B 100%)">
This project is my entry to Adobe's #ChallengeYourPerspective contest.

Change your static folder

The static folder contains the icons, social media images and robots.txt. Don’t forget to change these files, too!
