Usage

Let’s learn how you can use Utils SDK to render embedded items.

Create Render Option

To render embedded items on the front-end, use the renderContents function, and define the UI elements you want to show in the front-end of your website, as shown in the example code below:

    from contentstack_utils.utils import Utils
    from contentstack_utils.render.options import Options
    
    json_array = {} # should be type of dictionary or list
    option = Options()
    response = Utils.render_content('html_string', json_array, option)
    print(response)
    

Basic Queries

Contentstack Utils SDK lets you interact with the Content Delivery APIs and retrieve embedded items from the RTE field of an entry.

Fetch Embedded Item(s) from a Single Entry

To get an embedded item of a single entry, you need to provide the stack API key, environment name, content type’s UID, and entry’s UID. Then, use the entry.fetch function as shown below:

import contentstack
    
stack = contentstack.Stack('api_key','delivery_token','environment')
content_type = stack.content_type("content_type_uid")
entry = content_type.entry("entry_uid")
result = entry.fetch()
if result is not None:
   entry = result['entries']
   Utils.render(entry, ['rich_text_editor', 'some_other_text'], Option())
       

Fetch Embedded Item(s) from Multiple Entries

To get embedded items from multiple entries, you need to provide the stack API key, delivery token, environment name, and content type’s UID.

import contentstack

stack = contentstack.Stack('api_key','delivery_token','environment')
query = stack.content_type("content_type_uid").query()
result = query.find()
if result is not None and 'entries' in result:
   entry = result['entries']
   for item in range:
       option = Option()
       Utils.render(item, ['rich_text_editor', 'some_other_text'], option)

Supercharged

To get supercharged items from multiple entries, you need to provide the stack API key, delivery token, environment name, and content type’s UID.

import contentstack

stack = contentstack.Stack('api_key','delivery_token','environment')
query = stack.content_type("content_type_uid").query()
result = query.find()
if result is not None and 'entries' in result:
   entry = result['entries']
   for item in entry:
       option = Option()
       Utils.json_to_html(item, ['paragraph_text'], option)

GraphQL SRTE

To get supercharged items from multiple entries, you need to provide the stack API key, delivery token, environment name, and content type’s UID.

import contentstack

stack = contentstack.Stack('api_key','delivery_token','environment')
query = stack.content_type("content_type_uid").query()
result = query.find()
if result is not None and 'entries' in result:
   entry = result['entries']
   for item in entry:
       option = Option()
       GQL.json_to_html(item, ['paragraph_text'], option)
