After looking for a chat widget for my new gatsby site I came across tawk.
My favourite products are easy to use, full featured and cheap. Tawk is not only very well put together, it's also free unless you want to brand it.
After a quick search for a gatsby plugin came up short, I decided to build one. I'd never built an npm or gatsby plugin before so I figured it would be a good learning experience.
After understanding how to inject settings from the gatsby-config file plugin options, I set the tawk ID as an option and packaged the plugin. My first NPM was published!
