Hi guys, I am working on one gatsby-sanity-netlify stack at this moment on one of my projects. But, I am having some questions to ask, can anyone suggest, how to implement live web preview in sanity for new blog posts, I know it's working for existing posts or published posts, for which pages are already generated in gatsby, but as a content editor one needs to see live web preview for the unpublished posts as well. If anyone have gone through this in past & have some solutions then kindly help me here..

You'll need to run the live preview server somewhere. The easiest way is to do so in Gatsby Cloud, or you can self host it:

overlayDrafts: true
 and provide it a token with read permissions in the preview environment, so that the listeners can access the drafts.
