This tutorial will show you how to run the help center on your machine. At the end of this step, you will have the help center running locally. The next section then shows how to edit the content. And the final step shows how to deploy the help center to the internet, so that anyone can access it.


This tutorial assumes you’ve completed the previous step.

In the previous step, you cloned the gatsby-starter-help-center into a folder called help-center by running gatsby new help-center dferber90/gatsby-starter-help-center.

Run the help center locally

Now, change into the newly created help-center folder by running cd help-center.

You can now execute npm run develop to start Gatsby locally. This will run your help center. Watch the terminal output to see when Gatsby started. Then open http://localhost:8000 to see your new page locally.
