Last updated on Apr 10, 2024

If you have a website created on Gatsby, you can add a Chatwoot live chat widget and talk to your visitors in real time. This can be done in 3 simple steps using Chatwoot’s Gatsby plugin.

Step 1. Add the Gatsby plugin to your project

Add gatsby-plugin-chatwoot to your Gatsby project.

npm install --save gatsby-plugin-chatwoot

If you are using yarn, use the following:

yarn add gatsby-plugin-chatwoot

Step 2. Add the plugin to your Gatsby config file

// In your gatsby-config.js
plugins: [
    resolve: `gatsby-plugin-chatwoot`,
    options: {
      baseUrl: "BASE_URL", // Required
      websiteToken: "WEBSITE_TOKEN", // Required
      includeInDevelopment: false, // Optional
      chatwootSettings: {}, // Optional

You can get your Website token and base URL from your Inbox settings in your Chatwoot account.

If you need to create a new website channel, follow the procedure illustrated here.

Step 3. Start your server

You would be able to see the Chatwoot widget on the page now.
