Storage or CMS support

November 8, 2019 at 8:27am
Hello, one quick question that pops to mind is what would be the best way to use Divjoy with a CMS service (having parts of the code like the comments or a news section change with changes over a storage element). This seems not integrated? Shouldn't be too difficult. Just asking in case there's an obvious simple answer

Hey Raimon, it should be fairly straightforward, although depends a bit on your React experience. Most headless CMS like have a React library that enables you to fetch content via their API. You'd fetch the content you need and pass it into the component's props rather than have that data hardcoded. If you give me a bit more info on your stack I could probably help out more, specifically, are you using Create React App or Next.js? And which CMS do you plan to use?
This is actually something I'd like to help out with a lot more in Divjoy. Potentially we could add a CMS integration option and then when you export your code we'd automatically insert CMS API queries and alter any component props that are strings (like a title, description, image url, etc) to instead reference that query data. Still requires some thought and planning on how to do this in an automated fashion, but it's on the todo list.

if this is still part of the plan, maybe check out linking it up with Stackbit, theyre doing some awesome stuff getting headless cms and jamstack sites to work together easily
