Build a blog for beginners with React in 3 minutes

Strapi will be used in this project. It saves our data in a JSON file and return data with JSON throught API. Strapi is a popular open-source used by a lot of developers in 2021. You don't know how to use? Don't anxious, just follow me.

1. Set up Strapi

Open termial and paste it:

npx create-strapi-starter@latest my-strapi-gatsby gatsby-blog

But but, remember to enter "Quickstart (recommended)" after that 😲

To download, it takes about 1 minute to download. So, you can watch some pornhubs 😂.

2. Look through the blog

There are two tabs will be opened by the broswer after downloaded. The first tab for back-end where create some posts and the second tab for front-end where display your posts.
