Ask questionscontent model changes are not picked up for type generation
First of all, thanks for providing this awesome plugin!
Schema and type generation works perfectly and is very fast. The only thing that doesn't seem to work is picking up content model changes (i.e. Markdown). If I add, alter or remove a Markdown frontmatter field while running
gatsby develop, the change is reflected in the remote schema at
localhost:8000/___graphql, but generated schemas by
gatsby-plugin-typegen are not updated, that only happens once when executing
gatsby develop. If I just remove and add known properties from queries or fragments, type generation works instantly as expected.
I use the plugin together with the Apollo VS Code extension and consume the remote schema at
localhost:8000/___graphql instead of the generated schema file in
apollo.config.js to get IntelliSense for content model updates. However, type generation of the plugin fails, because it seems to not know about the schema update:
[typegen] An error on codegen GraphQLDocumentError: Cannot query field "testValue" on type "MarkdownRemarkFrontmatterForm". AggregateError: GraphQLDocumentError: Cannot query field "testValue" on type "MarkdownRemarkFrontmatterForm". - validate-documents.js:53 Object.checkValidationErrors [iacm-site]/[gatsby-plugin-typegen]/[@graphql-codegen]/core/dist/common/src/validate-documents.js:53:15 - codegen.js:63 codegen [iacm-site]/[gatsby-plugin-typegen]/dist/graphql-codegen-core/src/codegen.js:63:9
Is it intentional that schema updates only happen at startup (e.g. performance reasons) or is this due to some misconfiguration by me or a bug?

Hello @nibtime, thank you for reporting this!
Schema registration is currently happening only once the startup. I just couldn't consider the schema change scenario (forgot that the remark source changes it dynamically in runtime :sweat_smile:)
I'll fix it in the right next version! #79
