If you want to learn more about how you can use a Gatsby starter that is configured with a Gatsby theme, you can checkout this shorter or longer tutorial. The tutorials don’t exactly apply to this starter however the concepts are the same.

#Using and modifying this starter

Important Note: Please read the guide Shadowing in Gatsby Themes to understand how to customize the underlying theme!

This starter creates a new Gatsby site that installs and configures the theme @lekoarts/gatsby-theme-cara.

Have a look at the theme’s README and files to see what options are available and how you can shadow the various components including Theme UI. Generally speaking you will want to place your files into src/@lekoarts/gatsby-theme-cara/ to shadow/override files. The Theme UI config can be configured by shadowing its files in src/gatsby-plugin-theme-ui/.
