⛔️ [DEPRECATED] Please use https://github.com/fortressdev/squidex-client-manager

Squidex Client Manager CircleCI

Powered by Squidex npm version Downloads install size

This is a wrapper around the swagger API provided by Squidex.

The project is still a in early phase so the featureset is limited.

Please note all examples below use cloud.squidex.io in the examples but you can easily change out the https://cloud.squidex.io/api portion with the following format https://<my-server-url>/api/ for self-hosted version.

What is Squidex?

Squidex is a open source headless CMS. To learn more about it checkout the following links:

Installation

NPM

npm install squidex-client-manager

Yarn

yarn add squidex-client-manager

Usage

You need to setup the client before using it. For getting values for the client see https://cloud.squidex.io/app/<my-app>/settings/clients

When you have those values you can setup the client. Note that all examples below assume you are running in an async function.

Setting up the client

const { SquidexClientManager } = require('squidex-client-manager');

const client = new SquidexClientManager(
  // Server Url
  'https://cloud.squidex.io',
  // App name
  'my-blog-squidex',
  // Client Id
  'my-blog-squidex:developer',
  // Client Secret
  'my-secret',
);

Retrieving records

By default only 20 records are returned, the max is 200 but you can combine it with skip to paginate between the results or use AllRecords like below.

const records = await client.RecordsAsync('Articles', { top: 0 })
console.log(JSON.stringify(records, null, 2))
/* Output:
[squidex-client-manager][debug]: Records(Articles, [object Object])
[squidex-client-manager][debug]: GetModelByName(Articles)

console.log(allRecords.length);

Retrieving a record

Creating a record

imperdiet disputando, no cum oratio abhorreant. Agam accusata prodesset cu

  publish: true
}
const article = await client.CreateAsync('Articles', expected)

Updating a record

Note that this function will override the other fields.

// Get our record data
const record = await client.RecordAsync('Articles', {
    id: '4bb3a7bb-962d-4183-9ca6-35d170c34f3b'
})

// Change the relevant fields
record.title.iv = 'the title is updated'
record.text.iv = 'the article text updated'

// Send the update
const update = await client.UpdateAsync('Articles', {
  id: '4bb3a7bb-962d-4183-9ca6-35d170c34f3b',
  data: record
});
console.log(JSON.stringify(update, null, 2))
/* Output:
[squidex-client-manager][debug]: Update(Articles, [object Object])

{
  "title": {
    "iv": "the title is updated"
  },
  "text": {
    "iv": "the article text"
  }
}
*/

Create or update a record

If a record already exists it willl be merged.

const createOrUpdate = await client.CreateOrUpdateAsync(
  'Articles',
  {
    id: '4bb3a7bb-962d-4183-9ca6-35d170c34f3b',
    data: {
      title: { iv: 'title here is used as unique value for comparison' },
      text: { iv: 'y' }
    }
  },
  'title'
)
console.log(JSON.stringify(createOrUpdate, null, 2))
/* Output:

Filtering

The current implementation of filtering only supports comparisons i.e only eq. If you have use case that requests the full support of OData Conventions, please reach out by creating a issue.

If you only want to use eq then the following example should suffice

const input = { data: { title: { iv: 'Hello Squidex' } }, publish: true }
const filter = await client.FilterRecordsAsync('Articles', input, 'title')
console.log(JSON.stringify(filter, null, 2))
/* Output:
[squidex-client-manager][debug]: filter Articles where title eq Hello Squidex
[squidex-client-manager][debug]: Records(Articles, [object Object])
[squidex-client-manager][debug]: GetModelByName(Articles)
[
  {
    "id": "ffcbecb0-07a0-45f5-9b8e-bf53059fe25d",
    "createdBy": "subject:5ce8610ec020db00018051c7",
    "lastModifiedBy": "subject:5ce8610ec020db00018051c7",
    "data": {
      "title": {
        "iv": "Hello Squidex"
      },
      "text": {
        "iv": "## Testing markdown support"
      }
    },
    "isPending": false,
    "created": "2019-06-12T17:24:38Z",
    "lastModified": "2019-06-12T17:24:38Z",
    "status": "Published",
    "version": 1
  }
]
*/

Find one

const record = await client.FindOne('Articles', 'title', 'Hello Squidex')
console.log(JSON.stringify(record, null, 2))
/* Output:
[squidex-client-manager][debug]: Records(Articles, [object Object])
[squidex-client-manager][debug]: GetModelByName(Articles)
{
  "id": "ffcbecb0-07a0-45f5-9b8e-bf53059fe25d",
  "createdBy": "subject:5ce8610ec020db00018051c7",
  "lastModifiedBy": "subject:5ce8610ec020db00018051c7",
  "data": {
    "title": {
      "iv": "Hello Squidex"
    },
    "text": {
      "iv": "## Testing markdown support"
    }
  },
  "isPending": false,
  "created": "2019-06-12T17:24:38Z",
  "lastModified": "2019-06-12T17:24:38Z",
  "status": "Published",
  "version": 1
}

Creating assets

If you need to upload images or PDF's you can use CreateAssetAsync. The only restriction currently set is that the file must exist locally and be accessible. Also the mime type should be detectable.

// The path to the file locally
const filename = '../GitHub/power-by.png';
const localImageFile = path.resolve(__dirname, filename);
const upload = await client.CreateAssetAsync(localImageFile);
console.log(upload.statusText, `${upload.url}/${upload.body.id}`);
/* Output:
Created https://cloud.squidex.io/api/assets/826d1176-d7c3-41cd-b166-13249fdcc225?version=0

Changing Status

TODO: add example

Disclaimer

This project is not affiliated with Squidex and is an unofficial client. The project is developed and maintained by Alexander Alemayhu for Fortress.

Troubleshooting

This repository is intentionally testing against cloud.squidex.io. If for some reason you experience issues creating content via the API and are self-hosting. Make sure you are running a recent release of Squidex. To check your version visit check version visit https://<my-server-url>/api/info

Misc things to check

  • Check the client has enough permissions (recommended role for testing is Developer).
  • Check the model name you are querying exists in the Squidex schema.
  • Check your token is valid.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
