gatsby-source-storyblok

The Gatsby source plugin you need to interact with Storyblok API and enable the Real-time Visual Editing Experience.


gatsby-source-storyblok npm Follow @Storyblok
Follow @Storyblok

🚀 Usage

If you are first-time user of the Storyblok, read the Getting Started guide to get a project ready in less than 5 minutes.

Installation

Install gatsby-source-storyblok:

npm install gatsby-source-storyblok
// yarn add gatsby-source-storyblok

Initialization

Register the plugin on your application and add the access token of your Storyblok space. You can also add the apiPlugin in case that you want to use the Storyblok API Client: For Spaces created under US region, you should pass the region like { apiOptions: { region: ‘us’ } }. If your space is under EU, no further configuration is required.

You need to declare the plugin use and its options in gatsby-config.js

module.exports = {
  plugins: [
    {
      resolve: 'gatsby-source-storyblok',
      options: {
        accessToken: 'YOUR_TOKEN',
        version: 'draft',
        localAssets: true, // Optional parameter to download the images to use with Gatsby Image Plugin
        languages: ['de', 'at'] // Optional parameter. Omission will retrieve all languages by default.
      }
    }
  ]
}

src/components/layout.js

import configuration from '../../gatsby-config'

const sbConfig = configuration.plugins.find((item) => item.resolve === 'gatsby-source-storyblok')

storyblokInit({
  accessToken: sbConfig.options.accessToken,
  // bridge: false,
  apiOptions: {
    region: "us", // Pass this key/value if your space was created under US region
  },
  use: [apiPlugin],
  components: {
    teaser: Teaser,
    grid: Grid,
    feature: Feature
  }
});

Add all your components to the components object in the storyblokInit function.

That’s it! All the features are enabled for you: the Api Client for interacting with Storyblok CDN API, and Storyblok Bridge for real-time visual editing experience.

You can enable/disable some of these features if you don’t need them, so you save some KB. Please read the “Features and API” section

Getting Started

gatsby-source-storyblok does three actions when you initialize it:

  • Provides a useStoryblokState custom hook in your app, that parses story content JSON into the object.
  • Loads Storyblok Bridge for real-time visual updates.
  • Provides a storyblokEditable function to link editable components to the Storyblok Visual Editor.

1. Fetching Content

Query data from GraphQL:

src/pages/index.js

import { useStoryblokState } from "gatsby-source-storyblok"

import Layout from "../components/layout"

const IndexPage = ({ data }) => {
  let story = data.storyblokEntry
  story = useStoryblokState(story)

  return (
    <Layout>
      <div>
        <h1>{story.name}</h1>
      </div>
    </Layout>
  )
}

export default IndexPage

export const query = graphql`
  query HomeQuery {
    storyblokEntry(full_slug: { eq: "home" }) {
      name
      full_slug
    }
  }
`

Note: if you don’t use apiPlugin, you can use your prefered method or function to fetch your data.

2. Listen to Storyblok Visual Editor events

Use useStoryblokState to get the new story every time is triggered a change event from the Visual Editor. You need to pass the originalStory as a first param. bridgeOptions (second param) is an optional param if you want to set the options for bridge by yourself:

import { StoryblokComponent, useStoryblokState } from "gatsby-source-storyblok"

import Layout from "../components/layout"

const IndexPage = ({ data }) => {
  let story = data.storyblokEntry
  story = useStoryblokState(story)

  const components = story.content.body.map(blok => (<StoryblokComponent blok={blok} key={blok._uid} />))

  return (
    <Layout>
      <div>
        <h1>{story.name}</h1>
        {components}
      </div>
    </Layout>
  )
}

export default IndexPage

export const query = graphql`
  query HomeQuery {
    storyblokEntry(full_slug: { eq: "home" }) {
      content
      name
      full_slug
      internalId
    }
  }
`

You can pass Bridge options as a third parameter as well:

useStoryblok(story.internalId, (newStory) => setStory(newStory), {
  resolveRelations: ["Article.author"],
});

For every component you’ve defined in your Storyblok space, call the storyblokEditable function with the blok content:

import { storyblokEditable } from "gatsby-source-storyblok";

const Feature = ({ blok }) => {
  return (
    <div {...storyblokEditable(blok)} key={blok._uid}>
      <div>{blok.name}</div>
      <p>{blok.description}</p>
    </div>
  );
};

export default Feature;

Where blok is the actual blok data coming from Storblok’s Content Delivery API.

As an example, you can check in our Gatsby.js example demo how we use APIs provided from React SDK to combine with Gatsby.js projects.

import { StoryblokComponent, storyblokEditable, useStoryblokState } from "gatsby-source-storyblok"

import Layout from "../components/layout"

const IndexPage = ({ data }) => {
  let story = data.storyblokEntry
  story = useStoryblokState(story)

  const components = story.content.body.map(blok => (<StoryblokComponent blok={blok} key={blok._uid} />))

  return (
    <Layout>
      <div {...storyblokEditable(story.content)}>
        {components}
      </div>
    </Layout>
  )
}

export default IndexPage

export const query = graphql`
  query HomeQuery {
    storyblokEntry(full_slug: { eq: "home" }) {
      content
      name
      full_slug
      internalId
    }
  }
`

Features and API

You can choose the features to use when you initialize the plugin. In that way, you can improve Web Performance by optimizing your page load and save some bytes.

Storyblok API

You can use an apiOptions object. This is passed down to the storyblok-js-client config object:

storyblokInit({
  accessToken: "YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN",
  apiOptions: {
    // storyblok-js-client config object
    cache: { type: "memory" },
  },
  use: [apiPlugin],
  components: {
    teaser: Teaser,
    grid: Grid,
    feature: Feature,
  },
});

If you prefer to use your own fetch method, just remove the apiPlugin and storyblok-js-client won’t be added to your application.

storyblokInit({});

Storyblok Bridge

If you don’t use useStoryblokBridge, you still have access to the raw window.StoryblokBridge:

const sbBridge = new window.StoryblokBridge(options);

sbBridge.on(["input", "published", "change"], (event) => {
  // ...
});

Rendering Rich Text

You can easily render rich text by using the renderRichText function that comes with gatsby-source-storyblok:

import { renderRichText } from "gatsby-source-storyblok";
const renderedRichText = renderRichText(blok.richtext);

You can set a custom Schema and component resolver globally at init time by using the richText init option:

import { RichTextSchema, storyblokInit } from "gatsby-source-storyblok";
import cloneDeep from "clone-deep";
const mySchema = cloneDeep(RichTextSchema); // you can make a copy of the default RichTextSchema
// ... and edit the nodes and marks, or add your own.
// Check the base RichTextSchema source here https://github.com/storyblok/storyblok-js-client/blob/master/source/schema.js
storyblokInit({
  accessToken: "<your-token>",
  richText: {
    schema: mySchema,
    resolver: (component, blok) => {
      switch (component) {
        case "my-custom-component":
          return `<div class="my-component-class">${blok.text}</div>`;
        default:
          return "Resolver not defined";
      }
    },
  },
});

You can also set a custom Schema and component resolver only once by passing the options as the second parameter to renderRichText function:

import { renderRichText } from "gatsby-source-storyblok";
renderRichText(blok.richTextField, {
  schema: mySchema,
  resolver: (component, blok) => {
    switch (component) {
      case "my-custom-component":
        return `<div class="my-component-class">${blok.text}</div>`;
        break;
      default:
        return `Component ${component} not found`;
    }
  },
});

Gatsby feature references

With Gatsby’s image

You need to set the localAssets option to true. Here is an example of the usage:

import { graphql } from "gatsby"
import { GatsbyImage, getImage } from "gatsby-plugin-image"

function BlogPost({ data }) {
  const image = getImage(data.file)
  return (
    <section>
      <GatsbyImage image={image} />
    </section>
  )
}

export const pageQuery = graphql`
  query {
    file(name: {eq: "demo"}) {
      absolutePath
      url
      childImageSharp {
         gatsbyImageData(
          width: 200
          placeholder: BLURRED
          formats: [AUTO, WEBP, AVIF]
        )
      }
    }
  }
`

With Gatsby’s createPages

For more info regarding createPages see the Gatsby docs: docs/reference/config-files/gatsby-node/#createPages

2a. You need to create a template file to get the data from GraphQL

import { useStoryblokState } from "gatsby-source-storyblok"
import Layout from "../components/layout"

export default function StoryblokEntry ({ data }) {
  const story = data.storyblokEntry
  story = useStoryblokState(story)

  return (
    <Layout>
      <div>{story.name}</div>
    </Layout>
  )
}

export const query = graphql`
  query($slug: String!) {
    storyblokEntry(full_slug: { eq: $full_slug }) {
      internalId
      name
      full_slug
    }
  }
`

3a. After this, you need to create the pages for your application. For this, edit your gatsby-node.js.

const path = require('path')

exports.createPages = async ({ graphql, actions }) => {
  const storyblokEntry = path.resolve('src/templates/storyblok-entry.js')

  // querying the storyblok data from GraphQL data layer
  const { data } = await graphql(
    `query {
      allStoryblokEntry {
        edges {
          node {
            internalId
            full_slug
          }
        }
      }
    }`
  )

  // creating pages using createPage function like described in the documentation
  // https://www.gatsbyjs.org/docs/programmatically-create-pages-from-data/#creating-pages
  data.allStoryblokEntry.edges.forEach(edge => {
    const full_slug = edge.node.full_slug

    actions.createPage({
      path: full_slug,
      component: storyblokEntry,
      context: {
        slug: full_slug
      },
    })
  })
}

With Gatsby’s File System Routes API

For more info regarding The File System Routes API see the Gatsby docs: docs/reference/routing/file-system-route-api/

2b. Create a collection route inside src/pages

|-- src
   |-- pages
      |-- {storyblokEntry.full_slug}.js

3b. Gatsby will use ths page template for each storyblokEntry

import { useStoryblokState } from "gatsby-source-storyblok"
import Layout from "../components/layout"

export default function StoryblokEntry ({ data }) {
  const story = data.storyblokEntry
  story = useStoryblokState(story)

  return (
    <Layout>
      <div>{story.name}</div>
    </Layout>
  )
}

export const query = graphql`
  query ($full_slug: String!) {
    storyblokEntry(full_slug: { eq: $full_slug }) {
      internalId
      name
      full_slug
    }
  }
`

The options object in details

gatsby-config.js

{
  resolve: 'gatsby-source-storyblok',
  options: {
    accessToken: 'YOUR_TOKEN',
    version: 'draft',
    resolveRelations: [''],
    includeLinks: false
  }
}
  • accessToken: Your Storyblok draft token
  • version: ‘draft’ or ‘published’
  • timeout: Optionally provide a timeout for the api request
  • resolveLinks: This will automatically resolve internal links of the multilink field type. If the value is story the whole story object will be included. If the value is url only uuid, id, name, path, slug and url (url is a computed property which returns the “Real path” if defined to use it for navigation links) will be included.
  • resolveRelations: Resolve relationships to other Stories (in the first level of nesting) of a multi-option or single-option field-type. Provide the field key(s) as array to resolve specific fields. Example: [‘article.related_articles’, ‘article.author’].
  • includeLinks: If ‘true’ you can query links by allStoryblokLinkEntry. The links query lets you create a dynamic navigation tree as it includes also content folders.
  • languages: An array of strings that will be used in languages request instead of languages in space settings. Use it to only load the languages that you want to.

How to query all Content Entries

To get all entries unfiltered you can do the following query:

{
  allStoryblokEntry {
    edges {
      node {
        id
        name
        created_at
        published_at
        uuid
        slug
        full_slug
        content
        is_startpage
        parent_id
        group_id
        internalId
      }
    }
  }
}
How to query filtering of content inside a folder

The following example shows a filter to get all items from a news folder:

{
  allStoryblokEntry(filter: {full_slug: {regex: "/^news\//"}}) {
    edges {
      node {
        name
        full_slug
      }
    }
  }
}
How to query filtering of languages

If you use field level translations you can filter for a specific language using following query:

{
  allStoryblokEntry(filter: {lang: {eq: "de"}}) {
    edges {
      node {
        name
        full_slug
      }
    }
  }
}
How to query filtering on content type fields

Every field of your content types is available via the prefix field_.

This lets you for example to query for a specific component:

{
  allStoryblokEntry(filter: {field_component: {eq: "page"}}) {
    edges {
      node {
        name
        full_slug
      }
    }
  }
}

How to query a single content entry

{
  storyblokEntry(slug: { eq: "global-navi" }) {
    content
  }
}

Datasources

allStoryblokDatasource {
  edges {
    node {
      id
      value
      name
      data_source
    }
  }
}

How to query Datasource entries

This will return all datasources, with or not dimensions values:

allStoryblokDatasourceEntry(filter: { data_source: { eq: "DATASOURCE_SLUG" } }) {
  edges {
    node {
      id
      name
      value
      data_source
      data_source_dimension
    }
  }
}

If you want to filter by a specific dimension, you should use:

allStoryblokDatasourceEntry(filter: { data_source: { eq: "DATASOURCE_SLUG" }, data_source_dimension: { eq: "DATASOURCE_DIMENSION_VALUE" } }) {
  edges {
    node {
      id
      name
      value
      data_source
      data_source_dimension
    }
  }
}

Use the links api to create a dynamic navigation tree. To use this query you need to add includeLinks: true in the plugin options.

allStoryblokLinkEntry {
  edges {
    node {
      id
      uuid
      slug
      parent_id
      name
      is_folder
      published
      is_startpage
      position
    }
  }
}
