Handling requests with Gatsby

Gatsby Functions

Gatsby Functions provides an Express-like(opens in a new tab) architecture that simplifies building Node.js APIs.

Gatsby Functions can use the ClerkExpressWithAuth and ClerkExpressRequireAuth middlewares from the Clerk Node SDK as shown below.

import { ClerkExpressRequireAuth } from '@clerk/clerk-sdk-node'; const requireAuth = ClerkExpressRequireAuth(); export default async function clerkHandler(req, res) { await new Promise((resolve, reject) => { requireAuth(req, res, result => { if (result instanceof Error) { reject(result); } resolve(result); }); }) res.json(`Hi from Gatsby Functions`) }

For more information on how to use Express middlewares in Gatsby, refer to the Gatsby official documentation(opens in a new tab).
