Gridsome starter bootstrap

This is a starter project for Gridsome that comes with many features out of the box. It utilizes Bootstrap that is well known for powerful styling and layout. Ready to be deployed, automagically imports data to CMS and sets up your /admin page for easy access to edit your content.

It is designed to use Netlify, Forestry and Github which all have very fair free tier to their services, so you wont need to pay for monthly subscriptions and costly hosting fees.


This starter project includes some of the latest powerful technologies.

Getting started

The easiest way to get started quick is to use the Forestry button below, which will create a Github repository for you, clone this starter repo and import all data to the CMS. After that is complete, you can just go to Netlify and connect your newly created project that will set it up for automatic deployment when you commit to the Github repo.

Import this project into Forestry

Netlify config

Use the following build config for Netlify

Build command: gridsome build

Manually install just the project (without CMS).
