Transform files into content that can be fetched with GraphQL in your components.


  • yarn add @gridsome/source-filesystem
  • npm install @gridsome/source-filesystem


// gridsome.config.js

module.exports = {
  plugins: [
      use: '@gridsome/source-filesystem',
      options: {
        path: 'blog/**/*.md',
        typeName: 'BlogPost',
        route: '/blog/:year/:month/:day/:slug'

A filesystem source will also require a transformer in order to parse the files. The example above is looking for a set of Markdown files, so in order to let Gridsome understand the content of the files, you must install @gridsome/transformer-remark as a dev dependency in your project. Gridsome will automatically transform the files for you as long as a transformer that supports your files is found in your package.json.



  • Type: string required

Where to look for files. Should be a glob path.


  • Type: string
  • Default: 'FileNode'

The GraphQL type and template name. A .vue file in src/templates must match the typeName to have a template for it.


  • Type: string

Define a dynamic route if your source is able to have a certain pathname structure. This will generate only a single route for all nodes from this source. Possible url params are year, month, day and slug. If omitted, a route for each file will be generated based on their path and filename.


  • Type: Array
  • Default: ['index']

Define which files to consider as index files. These files will not have their filename appear in its route path and will become the main index.html file of the directory. Make sure there is only one possible index file per directory if multiple index names are defined.
