    Starter template to statically generate blog websites with Next.js and Keystone

    Fork the template and make it yours. That's what I did for my website as well. Say hi to me on Twitter. Happy Blogging! 👋

  • Tailwind CSS

    A utility-first CSS framework for rapid UI development.

    The blog template is built using Tailwind and comes with dark/light mode. The greatest thing about Tailwind is not the tool itself but its opinionated design tokens and the preset based approach (popularly known as utility based approach) to building and styling interfaces. Even if you don't know how your interfaces are exactly going to look, you can play around with the presets and somehow end up with a beautiful looking website. That's how good the default Tailwind design tokens are. Every time I work with Tailwind I feel like a magician pulling user interfaces out of thin air.

  • Zigi

    Close all those tabs. Zigi will handle your updates.. Zigi monitors Jira and GitHub updates, pings you when PRs need approval and lets you take fast actions - all directly from Slack! Plus it reduces cycle time by up to 75%.

  • PrismJS

    Lightweight, robust, elegant syntax highlighting.

    Keystone's document field is powered by an incredible rich text editor. All the default components (headings, paragraphs, bold, italics, code blocks, etc) that you usually use to write a blog post are supported by the editor out of the box. The editor exposes an intuitive API to build your own custom components and that's what makes this blog template stand out. This template includes a few custom components in the editor that would be useful in a blog post. Eg. Hero image, Tweet embed, YouTube embed, callout, custom blockquote and custom code blocks with syntax highlighting using prism.

  • KeystoneJS

    The most powerful headless CMS for Node.js — built with GraphQL and React

    Keystone is a powerful backend framework to build content driven websites. Keystone operates on schema driven development mental model where you describe the schema you want in JavaScript and Keystone automatically generates a fully functional GraphQL API for you in seconds. And to top it off, Keystone comes built-in with a feature-rich Admin UI to manage your content visually.


    The official Jamstack site

    Keystone gives us a GraphQL API right from the get go to work with our data, meaning, applications built with Keystone are Jamstack ready right from the start.

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Data Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services in less time with less code.
