A Contentful source plugin for Sourcebit

👩‍🏫 Introduction

With this plugin, you can add Contentful as a data source for Sourcebit. To connect your Contentful account, you need a Personal Access Token.

🏗 Installation

To install the plugin and add it to your project, run:

npm install sourcebit-source-contentful --save

💡 You don't need to run this command if you start Sourcebit using the interactive setup process, as the CLI will install the plugin for you and add it as a dependency to your project.

⚙️ Configuration

The plugin accepts the following configuration parameters. They can be supplied in any of the following ways:

  • In the options object of the plugin configuration block inside sourcebit.js, with the value of the Property column as a key;
  • As an environment variable named after the Env variable column, when running the sourcebit fetch command;
  • As part of a .env file, with the value of the Env variable column separated by the value with an equals sign (e.g. MY_VARIABLE=my-value);
  • As a CLI parameter, when running the sourcebit fetch command, using the value of the Parameter column as the name of the parameter (e.g. sourcebit fetch --my-parameter).
