Development

Publishing

A new package version is automatically published to npm using semantic-release.

To manually publish the package, run npm run publish-all.

This repository is published as two packages with identical data. We recommend using @contentful/app-sdk.

  • @contentful/app-sdk
  • contentful-ui-extensions-sdk

Canary releases

This package has two main development streams: latest and canary.

The default and stable releases are always published under the latest tag (as per npm convention). The release under the canary tag is to be considered unstable and potentially breaking. You should not rely on it in production.

To start a new alpha version of the package follow these steps:

  1. Checkout the canary branch.
  2. Reset canary to the latest main: git reset --hard origin/main
  3. Create a new branch with your changes from canary
  4. Create a PR that merges into canary.

File Structure

docs

Former home of the documentation and reference for this library. This is now deprecated and you should use links above.

lib

Includes the files constituting the SDK and the associated types.

Top level files are split by feature. Most of them map 1-to-1 to an API (keep reading for the outliers). When APIs are considered too small to be in a separate file, they are part of the api file.

  • channel and signal abstract the communication between an App and the host;
  • locations exports available location where you can run App;
  • initialize creates an initializer to start an App within Contentful's App Framework.

All the typings are in the types folder and they map 1-to-1 APIs, when they make sense. The entities file maps Contentful entities in TypeScript. utils includes utility types, meant to save on characters to type.

scripts

Includes utility tools for maintainers.

test

Includes unit tests (run by mocha)
