How to organize content in Gatsby?

I would like to design my website to look like the desktop view of the Headless CMS post with a dashboard on the left. The dashboard makes it easy to look at other content. How is this done on Gatsby? Or is it created using any of the CMS like Contentful?

On the Bejamas website, we use flat files (.mdx) as a content source. We have integrated Forestry CMS (which is git-based) to make it easier to edit content for the marketing team. Navigation on the left is a custom-build component based on the list of files in the `headless-cms` directory. Each file contains the content of one CMS.
