Kontent.ai Model Generator

The purpose of this project is to help you generate Typescript models based on Kontent.ai item types. These models can be used with the Delivery SDK and enhances your experience by providing strongly typed models.

Installation

Install package globally so you can use it anywhere:

npm i @kontent-ai/model-generator -g

Generate models with CLI

Go to folder where you want to create models and run:

kontent-generate --environmentId=xxx --apiKey=yyy

You may specify other options like:

kontent-generate --environmentId=xxx --apiKey=yyy --addTimestamp=false --elementResolver=camelCase

Generate models in code

Apart from generating models via CLI, you may also generate models in code which also gives you some additional configuration options (such as using custom name resolver).

import { generateModelsAsync } from '@kontent-ai/model-generator';

await generateModelsAsync({
    sdkType: 'delivery',
    environmentId: 'da5abe9f-fdad-4168-97cd-b3464be2ccb9',
    isEnterpriseSubscription: true,
    apiKey: 'yyy',
    addTimestamp: true,
    addEnvironmentInfo: true,
    elementResolver: 'camelCase',
    sortConfig: {
      sortTaxonomyTerms: true
    }
})

Customizing generated file names

You may customize the way filenames are stored on file system using the contentTypeFileResolver and / or taxonomyTypeFileResolver configuration option:

await generateModelsAsync({
  sdkType: 'delivery',
  environmentId: 'da5abe9f-fdad-4168-97cd-b3464be2ccb9',
  isEnterpriseSubscription: true,
  addEnvironmentInfo: true,
  apiKey: 'yyy',
  addTimestamp: true,
  elementResolver: 'camelCase',
  contentTypeFileResolver: (type) => `content_type_${type.codename}`,
  taxonomyTypeFileResolver: (taxonomy) => `taxonomy_${taxonomy.codename}`,
});

Customizing generated content type names

You may customize name of content types using the contentTypeResolver configuration option and taxonomy types with the taxonomyTypeResolver option:

await generateModelsAsync({
  sdkType: 'delivery',
  environmentId: 'da5abe9f-fdad-4168-97cd-b3464be2ccb9',
  isEnterpriseSubscription: true,
  apiKey: 'yyy',
  addTimestamp: true,
  addEnvironmentInfo: true,
  elementResolver: 'camelCase',
  contentTypeResolver: (type) => `${textHelper.toPascalCase(type.codename)}Model`,
  taxonomyTypeResolver: (taxonomy) => `${textHelper.toPascalCase(taxonomy.codename)}Taxonomy`,
});
