The first focus is using Hashnode's API to pull in your posts and pages into a Laravel application when using headless within your blog advanced settings page.

I'm using Headless mode with Hashnode on this blog, I'm a huge fan of this approach.

This allows me to still be part of the Hahsnode community and have my posts shared into the Hashnode feeds whilst being in full control over my frontend.

I really love Hashnode's editor and AI integration so this allows me to have the best of both worlds.

I can now have my blog as part of my site and not restricted to choose between a sub domain or a main domain with just hashnode content. I can mix and match. For instance my Packages, Books and Contact pages are all custom Laravel pages.

With pick a theme from the Hashnode category then pull in your blog posts by adding your hashnode URL into the .env file

The laravel applications use Hashnode's GraphQL API to pull in:

  • Posts

  • Series

  • Pages

  • Followers

  • Nav Menu including their items for posts, series and pages

  • RSS feed

  • Favicon

  • Social icons (GitHub, Twitter, Facebook etc)

  • SEO meta tags

  • Team Logo (for teams) or Author Logo (for single publications)

  • About text

  • Newsletter integration

  • Search posts integration

This gives you full control over the design and layout.
