API / Content Models / Types

Types A content type defines a type of content that your content workers generally create, edit and publish. For example, an article or a press release might be considered to be a content type. The content type defines the schema, properties, behaviors and everything to do with a specific kind of content. You then set about creating instances of that content type. These are sometimes referred to as content instances. Instances are instantiations of a type. All content instances adhere to the spe

API / Content Models / Overview

Overview A content model consists of definitions which describe your project's content types, properties, graph associations, and the aspect-oriented features that Cloud CMS uses to ensure data consistency, integrity and validity when content is created, updated or deleted. In Cloud CMS, all content modeling is done using JSON and more specifically, JSON Schema. JSON Schema provides an elegant and well-adopted model for describing the types for content objects, properties and other nested elemen

API / Content Models / References

References References provide a way for you to link two definitions together so as to reuse one of the definitions in the other. It gives you a way to centrally define something and then have that something's schema get reused in other definitions in your content model. For example, suppose you have an my:author definition that looks like this: { "type": "object", "properties": { "firstName": { "type": "string", "title": "First Name" }, "la

API / Controls / Related Content

Related Content ID: related-content The related-content field type renders a n upload field that is pre-configured to upload assets and store them as standalone document nodes within the content graph. This is useful, say, if you wanted to let end users upload images and store them in an /Images folder. Sample configuration: { "type": "related-content", "uploadPath": "/Images" } The related content control should be modeled on top of either an object or an array field. This is very simi

API / Controls / File Picker

File Picker ID: file-picker The file-picker field type renders a modal picker for a file. This uses the File Folder service within Cloud CMS to let you browse through folder-based navigation. A breadcrumb is rendered at the top to help users step through the folder hierarchy. Sample configuration: { "type": "file-picker" } As with the node picker, the file picker should be modeled on top of either an object or an array field. The former is used for selection of a single node whereas the lat

API / Controls / Node Picker

Node Picker ID: node-picker The node-picker field type renders a modal picker for a node. The modal picker allows you to filter nodes as well as paginate, sort and inspect nodes. The picker supports single node and multi-node selection depending on how the field is configured. Sample configuration: { "type": "node-picker" } The node picker should be modeled on top of either an object or an array field. The former is used for selection of a single node whereas the latter is used for selectio

API / Forms / Forms Overview

Forms Overview Cloud CMS automatically generates and displays mobile-friendly forms using the Alpaca Javascript / HTML5 forms engine. The Alpaca Forms Engine was created by Cloud CMS and is available as an open source project. In addition to the standard library of 40+ controls provided by Alpacajs, Cloud CMS provides support for several additional controls that run within the Cloud CMS user interface. Schemas and Forms Cloud CMS separates the concept of a schema from a form. A schema (or defini

Definitions for Date format

Our definitions are based on JSON schema and, as such, the default is to use strings for dates. The date controls in our forms engine let you customize the format string so that you can store ISO 8601 or other formats (perhaps simplified formats) as per your preference. The advantage here is simplicity with these controls and compatibility with JSON schema. The disadvantage is that MongoDB provides a lot of very powerful capabilities for range query and sorting that do not play as nicely with th
