Adding an RSS Feed to a GatsbyJS website

Very quick and simple with the right plugin

July 01, 2020

I got my first feature request - to add an RSS Feed to the website. This was very simple thanks to the gatsby-plugin-feed plugin. I followed these steps on the GatsbyJS website and within a few minutes had a working RSS Feed. A couple of caveats, the RSS Feed only works with a production build and the icon for my RSS Feed Reader only rendered after deploying to Firebase.

Thanks to my friend Dave for this fun, simple feature request. You should check out his blog! Nice dark mode, that’s definitely on my todo list 😁
