Watch Me Code: Adding an RSS feed to my Gatsby blog

February 19, 2018

Some technical knowledge assumed.

Honestly, this feature is entirely redundant at this point. Nobody actively reads this blog yet, as I have not advertised it properly yet. I really only wanted to add an RSS feature because I like RSS. I even wrote an RSS thingy for Übersicht at one point.

Although it’s not depicted in this video, the RSS feed can now be found by clicking the RSS icon (currently) at the bottom of this page.

As you may have noticed, I decided to add a few more of these follow-me buttons. Indeed, I found it so easy to add these that I’ve added similar icons for sharing each of my articles. I didn’t document this process but this was done by using the react-share and react-social-icons libraries.
