import groq from 'groq'

import client from '../../client'

_interface_ post {

title: _string_

name: _string_

body: []


_interface_ postProps {

display: 'flex',

flexDirection: 'column',

justifyContent: 'center',

alignContent: 'center',

height: '100vh',

textAlign: 'center',

backgroundColor: 'black',

color: 'ghostwhite',





<span>By {name}</span>

return {

paths: paths.map((_slug_: _string_) _=>_ ({ params: { slug } })),

fallback: true,



export async _function_ getStaticProps(_context_: { params: { slug: _string_ } }) {

_const_ { slug = '' } = _context_.params

_const_ post = await client.fetch(query, { slug })


if (!post) return { props: null, notFound: true }


return {

props: {





export default Post
