Everything is a CMS!

This code supports the demo from the Everything is a CMS! talk from Next.js Conf 2020.

Its purpose is to demonstrate that we can easily swap data sources in and out by building abstracted and normalized engines. There are two types of engines, both which are shown within this project:

  • API-Based
  • File-Based

Currently, the supported data sources are:

Getting Started

Note: This project is built to run in development mode for demo purposes. I haven't tested the build and deploy processes.

To run the project, start the Next server:

$ npm run dev

And then visit your browser at localhost:3000.

See below for working with the various data engines and their drivers (i.e. sources).

Environment Variables

There are a series of environment variables that are required to work with various data sources:

Data Source Required Environment Variables Notes
Bear BEAR_DATABASE_PATH Local absolute path to Bear's SQLite database.
BEAR_TAG Notes are filtered by tag. This is the name of the tag without the #.
CONTENTFUL_CONTENT_TYPE_ID This is a word you control when creating the content type. Usually, if the type is called Sandwich, the ID will be sandwich.
Dropbox DROPBOX_ACCESS_TOKEN Create an app to generate a token.
DROPBOX_FILES_DIR Sandwich files are filtered by directory. The path to the directory in which your files are stored should begin with a slash (e.g. /everything-is-a-cms.
FAUNA_INDEX_NAME The items are pulled from an index you create with Fauna. This is the name of that index.
Google Sheets GOOGLE_CREDENTIALS Create a service account and then a JSON key. Download the key and store it as an env var, escaping quotes and other characters as necessary.
GOOGLE_SHEET_ID You can pull this from the URL when viewing the sheet.
Trello TRELLO_ACCESS_TOKEN You can find your API key and generate a token for your user here.

API-Based Engine

The API-based engine example here is an Apollo GraphQL server. Its contents live in the api-engine directory.

All drivers for this engine live in the api-engine/lib/drivers directory and are plugged into the api-engine/index.js entry file.

The server must be running to see it in action on the front-end. You can start the server by running:

$ node api-engine/index.js

You can then work with any of the API-based examples. You can also visit a playground for your GraphQL queries at localhost:4000.

File-Based Engine

The file-based engine has a reader and a writer. The reader is used by the front-end templates to read local markdown files. The writer pulls data from the data sources and writes them to markdown files in the _data directory.

You can import files by running the appropriate command-line script:

$ npm run import:[driver]

Supported drivers are (i.e. replace [driver] with one of the following):

  • bear
  • contentful
  • dropbox
  • fauna
  • sheets
  • trello
