Headless CMS for Gridsome

Hygraph is the ideal Headless CMS for Gridsome websites and applications. Read further to learn how our API-first CMS allows you to add components to your Gridsome apps in minutes and enable your website's content to be managed from a powerful CMS.

Step #1 - Set up your index page layout

Setting up the layout in the index.vue file in Gridsome is crucial for defining your website's homepage structure. This Vue.js component file acts as the root layout, allowing you to organize content, style the page, and create a visually engaging landing page. With Gridsome's flexibility and Vue.js, you can efficiently design an attractive and dynamic introduction to your site.

Within you'll add the product list that you'll fetch from Hygraph with the query from the next step.

<g-image alt="Example image" src="~/favicon.png" width="135" />
<h1>Hello, world!</h1>
Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipisicing elit. Pariatur
excepturi labore tempore expedita, et iste tenetur suscipit explicabo!
Dolores, aperiam non officia eos quod asperiores
<p class="home-links" v-if="$page.hygraph">
v-for="product in $page.hygraph.products"
:to="'product/' + product.slug"
>{{ product.name }}</g-link

Step #2 - Construct the query within the index file

In Gridsome, <page-query> enables you to fetch and query data for a specific page directly within your Vue component. This makes it incredibly efficient to request and work with data from the heaedless CMS specific to that page, simplifying the development of dynamic and data-driven web applications.
