@storyblok/vue

The Vue SDK you need to interact with Storyblok API and enable the Real-time Visual Editing Experience.


Storyblok Vue npm

Follow @Storyblok Follow @Storyblok

Note This plugin is for Vue 3. Check out the docs for Vue 2 version.

🚀 Usage

Check out the Live Demo on Stackblitz!

Important 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 @storyblok/vue

npm install @storyblok/vue
# yarn add @storyblok/vue

Warning This SDK uses the Fetch API under the hood. If your environment doesn't support it, you need to install a polyfill like isomorphic-fetch. More info on storyblok-js-client docs.

Register the plugin on your application (usually in main.js), add the apiPlugin and add the access token of your Storyblok space:

import { createApp } from "vue";
import { StoryblokVue, apiPlugin } from "@storyblok/vue";
import App from "./App.vue";

const app = createApp(App);

app.use(StoryblokVue, {
  accessToken: "YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN",
  use: [apiPlugin],
});

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.

Note 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.

From a CDN

Install the file from the CDN and access the methods via window.storyblokVue:

<script src="https://unpkg.com/@storyblok/vue"></script>

Getting started

@storyblok/vue does three actions when you initialize it:

  • Provides a storyblokApi object in your app, which is an instance of storyblok-js-client
  • Loads Storyblok Bridge for real-time visual updates
  • Provides a v-editable directive to link editable components to the Storyblok Visual Editor

Short Form

Load globally the Vue components you want to link to Storyblok in your main.js file:

import Page from "./components/Page.vue";
import Teaser from "./components/Teaser.vue";

app.use(StoryblokVue, {
  accessToken: "<your-token>",
  use: [apiPlugin],
});

app.component("Page", Page);
app.component("Teaser", Teaser);

The simplest way is by using the useStoryblok one-liner composable. Where you need to pass as first parameter the slug, while the second and third parameters, apiOptions and bridgeOptions respectively, are optional:

Note The resolveRelations and resolveLinks from bridgeOptions can be excluded if you're already defining them as resolve_relations and resolve_links in apiOptions, we will add them by default. But you will always be able to overwrite them.

<script setup>
  import { useStoryblok } from "@storyblok/vue";
  const { story, fetchState } = useStoryblok(
    "path-to-story",
    { version: "draft", resolve_relations: "Article.author" }, // API Options
    { resolveRelations: ["Article.author"], resolveLinks: "url" } // Bridge Options
  );
</script>

<template>
  <StoryblokComponent v-if="story" :blok="story.content" />
</template>

Check the available apiOptions in our API docs and bridgeOptions passed to the Storyblok Bridge.

Rendering Rich Text

You can easily render rich text by using the renderRichText function that comes with @storyblok/vue and a Vue computed property:

<template>
  <div v-html="articleContent"></div>
</template>

<script setup>
  import { computed } from "vue";
  import { renderRichText } from "@storyblok/vue";

  const articleContent = computed(() => renderRichText(blok.articleContent));
</script>

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

import { RichTextSchema, StoryblokVue } from "@storyblok/vue";
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

app.use(StoryblokVue, {
  accessToken: "YOUR_ACCESS_TOKEN",
  use: [apiPlugin],
  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 "@storyblok/vue";

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`;
    }
  },
});

Long Form

1. Fetching Content

Inject storyblokApi when using Composition API:

<template>
  <div>
    <p v-for="story in stories" :key="story.id">{{ story.name }}</p>
  </div>
</template>

<script setup>
  import { useStoryblokApi } from "@storyblok/vue";

  const storyblokApi = useStoryblokApi();
  const { data } = await storyblokApi.get(
    "cdn/stories/home",
    { version: "draft", resolve_relations: "Article.author" } // API Options
  );
</script>

Note You can skip using apiPlugin if you prefer your own method or function to fetch your data.

2. Listen to Storyblok Visual Editor events

Use useStoryBridge to get the new story every time is triggered a change event from the Visual Editor. You need to pass the story id as first param, and a callback function as second param to update the new story:

<script setup>
  import { onMounted } from "vue";
  import { useStoryblokBridge, useStoryblokApi } from "@storyblok/vue";

  const storyblokApi = useStoryblokApi();
  const { data } = await storyblokApi.get(
    "cdn/stories/home",
    { version: "draft", resolve_relations: "Article.author" } // API Options
  );
  const state = reactive({ story: data.story });

  onMounted(() => {
    useStoryblokBridge(state.story.id, story => (state.story = story));
  });
</script>

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

useStoryblokBridge(
  state.story.id,
  (story) => (state.story = story),
  {
    resolveRelations: ["Article.author"],
    resolveLinks: "url",
  } // Bridge Options
);
3. Link your components to Storyblok Visual Editor

For every component you've defined in your Storyblok space, add the v-editable directive with the blok content:

<template>
  <div v-editable="blok"><!-- ... --></div>
</template>

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

Check out the playground for a full example.

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.

useStoryblok(pathToStory, apiOptions = {}, bridgeOptions = {})

This example of useStoryblok:

<script setup>
  import { useStoryblok } from "@storyblok/vue";
  const story = await useStoryblok(
    "blog",
    { version: "draft", resolve_relations: "Article.author" }, // API Options
    { resolveRelations: ["Article.author"], resolveLinks: "url" } // Bridge Options
  );
</script>

Is equivalent to the following, using useStoryblokBridge and useStoryblokApi:

<script setup>
  import { onMounted } from "vue";
  import { useStoryblokBridge, useStoryblokApi } from "@storyblok/vue";

  const storyblokApi = useStoryblokApi();
  const { data } = await storyblokApi.get(
    "cdn/stories/blog",
    { version: "draft", resolve_relations: "Article.author" }, // API Options
  );
  const state = reactive({ story: data.story });

  onMounted(() => {
    useStoryblokBridge(
      state.story.id,
      story => (state.story = story),
      { resolveRelations: ["Article.author"], resolveLinks: "url" } // Bridge Options
    );
  });
</script>

Check the available apiOptions (passed to storyblok-js-client) and bridgeOptions (passed to the Storyblok Bridge).

Storyblok API

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

app.use(StoryblokVue, {
  accessToken: "<your-token>",
  apiOptions: {
    // storyblok-js-client config object
    cache: { type: "memory" },
  },
  use: [apiPlugin],
});

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

app.use(StoryblokVue);

Region parameter

Possible values:

  • eu (default): For spaces created in the EU
  • us: For spaces created in the US
  • ap: For spaces created in Australia
  • ca: For spaces created in Canada
  • cn: For spaces created in China

Full example for a space created in the US:

app.use(StoryblokVue, {
  accessToken: "<your-token>",
  use: [apiPlugin],
  apiOptions: {
    region: "us",
  },
});

Important For spaces created in the United States or China, the region parameter must be specified.

Storyblok Bridge

You can conditionally load it by using the bridge option. Very useful if you want to disable it in production:

app.use(StoryblokVue, {
  bridge: process.env.NODE_ENV !== "production",
});

In case you need it, you have still access to the raw window.StoryblokBridge:

const sbBridge = new window.StoryblokBridge(options);

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

Using Fallback components

By default, @storyblok/vue show a console.error if a component is not implemented. Setting enableFallbackComponent to true bypasses that behavior, rendering a fallback component in the frontend instead.

app.use(StoryblokVue, {
  // ...
  enableFallbackComponent: true,
});

You can also create and use a custom fallback component by setting customFallbackComponent: "MyCustomFallback".

import MyCustomFallback from "./components/MyCustomFallback.vue";

app.use(StoryblokVue, {
  // ...
  enableFallbackComponent: true,
  customFallbackComponent: "MyCustomFallback",
});

app.component("MyCustomFallback", MyCustomFallback);

Compatibility

This plugin is for Vue 3. Thus, it supports the same browsers as Vue 3. In short: all modern browsers, dropping IE support.
