I have built a minimal blog template with Astro. Feel free to clone it, star it ... it is 100% free

Hello everyone, I am learning how to use Astro and at the same time I am building some free templates so everyone can enjoy them.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach me on twitter at:

Astro looks for .astro or .md files in the src/pages/ directory. Each page is exposed as a route based on its file name.
There's nothing special about src/components/, but that's where we like to put any Astro/React/Vue/Svelte/Preact components.
Any static assets, like images, can be placed in the public/ directory.

🧞 Commands

All commands are run from the root of the project, from a terminal:
| Command | Action |
|:---------------- |:-------------------------------------------- |
| npm install | Installs dependencies |
| npm run dev | Starts local dev server at localhost:3000 |
| npm run build | Build your production site to ./dist/ |
| npm run preview | Preview your build locally, before deploying |
