Collections

Fetching Collections

This demonstrates a basic query for a collection.

All examples can be used with/documents Endpoint as well.

window.fetch('https://api.cmft.io/v1/<repo>/collections/<collection>', {
  method: 'get',
  headers: {
    'Content-Type': 'application/json',
    'Authorization': '<apiKey>'
  }
})
  .then(function (response) { return response.json() })
  .then(function (data) {
    console.log(data)
  })

Sample Request

GET https://api.cmft.io/v1/demo/collections/news?key=8MIO994Ley6bqyAlQAHqutiDh4g5Heck

Response Shaping

Let's say we want to display a news page with a teaser view for each article. To reduce the payload we're going to do a request and tell the API to include only the fields title , text and image for each document.

// Define query
var query = {
  "fields": "fields(title,text,image)"
};

// Stringify and URI Encode the Object
query = encodeURIComponent(JSON.stringify(query));

window.fetch(`https://api.cmft.io/v1/<repo>/collections/<collection>?query=${query}`, {
  method: 'get',
  headers: {
    'Content-Type': 'application/json',
    'Authorization': '<apiKey>'
  }
})
  .then(function (response) { return response.json() })
  .then(function (data) {
    console.log(data)
  })

Sample Request

GET https://api.cmft.io/v1/demo/collections/news?fields=fields(title,text,image)&key=8MIO994Ley6bqyAlQAHqutiDh4g5Heck

Reduced scopes

This example query makes a collection request that will only return the meta scope for each document.

window.fetch('https://api.cmft.io/v1/<repo>/<collection>?fields=meta', {
  method: 'get',
  headers: {
    'Content-Type': 'application/json',
    'Authorization': '<apiKey>'
  }
})
  .then(function (response) { return response.json() })
  .then(function (data) {
    console.log(data)
  })

Reduced fields for relations

This query returns a full list of documents, but for the relations the payload is limited to the fields name and id.

// Define query
var query = {
  "fields": "includes(news(fields(title),meta(id))),fields,meta"
};

// Stringify and URI Encode the Object
query = encodeURIComponent(JSON.stringify(query));

window.fetch(`https://api.cmft.io/v1/<repo>/<collection>?query=${query}`, {
  method: 'get',
  headers: {
    'Content-Type': 'application/json',
    'Authorization': '<apiKey>'
  }
})
  .then(function (response) { return response.json() })
  .then(function (data) {
    console.log(data)
  })

The parameter explained

includes( // the 1st level scope 'includes'
  news( // select 'news' in 'includes'
    fields( // select the content fields for the related type
      title
    ),
    meta( // select the meta fields for the related type
      id
    )

Applying filters to collection queries

You can apply additional filters on all documents in a collection. Find examples with multiple filters on the filters examples page.

Filter by checkbox state

In this example we're going to check the availability of a product based on a simple checkbox field.

// Define query
var query = {
  "filters": [
    {
      "*.fields.inStock": true
    }
  ]
};

// Stringify and URI Encode the Object
query = encodeURIComponent(JSON.stringify(query));

// Make the request
window.fetch(`https://api.cmft.io/v1/<repo>/collections/<collection>?query=${query}`, {
  method: 'get',
  headers: {
    'Content-Type': 'application/json',
    'Authorization': '<apiKey>'
  }
})
  .then(function (response) { return response.json() })
  .then(function (data) {
    console.log(data)
  })
