Install

Add Gatsby Source Flotiq plugin to your project:

Enable and configure plugin:

// in your gatsby-config.js in root of the project
require('dotenv').config();

module.exports = {
  // ...
  plugins: [
    {
      resolve: "gatsby-source-flotiq",		  
        options: {
            baseUrl: process.env.GATSBY_FLOTIQ_BASE_URL,
            authToken: process.env.GATSBY_FLOTIQ_API_KEY,
            forceReload: false, //(optional)
            includeTypes: ['contettype1', 'contettype2', ... ], //(optional) List of used contenttypes identified by API Name. If ommitted, all content types will be synchronized. Make sure to include all referenced content types as well
            objectLimit: 100000, //optional, limit number of objects for every type
            timeout: 5000, //optional
            resolveMissingRelations: true, //optional, if the limit of objects is small some of the objects in relations could not be obtained from server, it this option is true they will be obtained as the graphQL queries in project would be resolved, if false, the missing object would resolve to null
            downloadMediaFile: false //optional, should media files be cached and be available for gatsby-image and gatsby-sharp
        },
    },
  ],
  // ...
}

Parameters

  • baseUrl - url to the Flotiq API (in most cases https://api.flotiq.com)
  • authToke - API token, if you wish to only pull data from Flotiq it can be Red-only key, if you need to put data it has to be Read-write key, more about Flotiq API keys here
  • forceRelaod - indicates if the data should be pulled in full or plugin should use cache (true for full pull, false for cache usage)
  • includeTypes - array of Content Type Definitions used in the project (if you use images or files pulled from Flotiq, you must include _media CTD)
  • objectsLimit - if you wish to not pull all objects from Flotiq (e.g. in development to speed up reload), you can limit it using this parameter, in production it should be higher than number of object in any Content Type pulled to project
  • timeout - time (in milliseconds) after which connection to Flotiq should timed out
  • resolveMissingRelations - when the objectsLimit is smaller than number of objects in CTDs to avoid nulls on objects connected to other objects plugin make additional calls to pull missing data, if you want to suppress this behavior set this parameter to false
  • downloadMediaFile - should media files be downloaded and cached and be available fully for gatsby-image and gatsby-image-sharp

please make sure to put your API credentials in your .env file:

GATSBY_FLOTIQ_BASE_URL="https://api.flotiq.com"
GATSBY_FLOTIQ_API_KEY=XXXX-YOUR-API-KEY-XXXX

At this point you should have added Content Type Definitions required by your project/starter, more about adding Content Types ond Objects in the Flotiq documentation.

Media

If you are using default downloadMediaFile parameter (false), the fixed and fluid images are limited (no base46, automatic webp translation and tracedSVG). You can use them like that (assuming you have blogpost Content Type with headerImage media property):

query MyQuery {
  allBlogpost {
    nodes {
      headerImage {
        fixed(height: 1000, width: 1000) {
          aspectRatio
          height
          width
          src
          srcSet
        }
        fluid(maxWidth: 1000) {
          src
          srcSet
          aspectRatio
          originalName
        }
      }
    }
  }
}
import Img from "gatsby-image";
//...
const post = this.props.data.blogpost;
//...
<Img fluid={post.headerImage[0].fluid}/>
<Img fixed={post.headerImage[0].fixed}/>

If you are using downloadMediaFile as true, you can use full potential of gatsby-image and gatsby-image-sharp. You can use them like that (assuming you have blogpost Content Type with headerImage media property):

query MyQuery {
  allBlogpost {
    nodes {
      headerImage {
        localFile {
          childImageSharp {
            fixed(height: 1000, width: 1000) {
              ...GatsbyImageSharpFixed
            }
            fluid(maxWidth: 1000) {
              ...GatsbyImageSharpFluid
            }
          }
        }
      }
    }
  }
}
import Img from "gatsby-image";
//...
const post = this.props.data.blogpost;
//...
<Img fluid={post.headerImage[0].localFile.childImageSharp.fluid}/>
<Img fixed={post.headerImage[0].localFile.childImageSharp.fixed}/>
