    Contentstack Management JavaScript SDK

    Contentstack is a headless CMS with an API-first approach. It is a CMS that developers can use to build powerful cross-platform applications in their favorite languages. All you have to do is build your application frontend, and Contentstack will take care of the rest. Read More.

    This SDK uses the Content Management API (CMA). The CMA is used to manage the content of your Contentstack account. This includes creating, updating, deleting, and fetching content of your account. To use the CMA, you will need to authenticate your users with a Management Token or an Authtoken. Read more about it in Authentication.

    Note: By using CMA, you can execute GET requests for fetching content. However, we strongly recommend that you always use the Content Delivery API to deliver content to your web or mobile properties.

    Prerequisite

    You need Node.js version 10 or above installed on your machine to use the Contentstack JavaScript CMA SDK.

    Installation

    Node

    Install it via npm:

    npm i @contentstack/management

    To import the SDK, use the following command:

    import contentstack from ‘@contentstack/management’
    
    contentstackClient = contentstack.client()
    

    Authentication

    To use this SDK, you need to authenticate your users by using the Authtoken, credentials, or Management Token (stack-level token).

    Authtoken

    An Authtoken is a read-write token used to make authorized CMA requests, and it is a user-specific token.

    contentstackClient = contentstack.client({ authtoken: 'AUTHTOKEN' })
    

    Login

    To Login to Contentstack by using credentials, you can use the following lines of code:

    contentstackClient.login({ email: 'EMAIL', password: 'PASSWORD'})
    .then((response) => {
    	console.log(response.notice)
    	console.log(response.user)
    })
    

    Management Token

    Management Tokens are stack-level tokens, with no users attached to them.

    contentstackClient.stack({ api_key: 'API_KEY', management_token: 'MANAGEMENT_TOKEN' }).contentType('CONTENT_TYPE_UID')
    .fetch()
    .then((contenttype) => {
    	console.log(contenttype)
    })
    

    Contentstack Management JavaScript SDK: 5-minute Quickstart

    Initializing Your SDK:

    To use the JavaScript CMA SDK, you need to first initialize it. To do this, use the following code:

    import contentstack from ‘@contentstack/management’
    
    var contentstackClient = contentstack.client({ authtoken: 'AUTHTOKEN' })
    

    Fetch Stack Detail

    Use the following lines of code to fetch your stack detail using this SDK:

    contentstackClient.stack({ api_key: 'API_KEY' })
    .fetch()
    .then((stack) => {
    	console.log(stack)
    })
    

    Create Entry

    To create an entry in a specific content type of a stack, use the following lines of code:

    var  entry  = {
    	title: 'Sample Entry',
    	url: '/sampleEntry'
    }
    
    contentstackClient.stack({ api_key: 'API_KEY' }).contentType('CONTENT_TYPE_UID').entry().create({ entry })
    .then((entry) => {
    	console.log(entry)
    })
    

    Create Asset

    The following lines of code can be used to upload assets to your stack:

    var  asset  = {
    	upload: 'path/to/file',
    	title: 'Asset Title'
    }
    
    contentstackClient.stack({ api_key: 'API_KEY' }).asset().create({ asset })
    .then((asset) => {
    	console.log(asset)
    })
