Hi, I’m working on a sidebar app using the contentful app framework. I’m looking for a way to get an Entry’s associated preview url from the sdk but the docs don’t mention anything about this. I would assume that this should be possible, am I overlooking something?
Hi @developer2 ,
Usually a Preview URL is constructed as:
- ‘your preview host’ (using Preview API), something like
- ‘content tree’ - optional, this is usually decide by your app, can be as simple as
/ctfor as complex as a built category tree
- ‘entry slug’ - that’s the slug that is in every entry (it’s usually auto-generated, but could be personalised). Something like
For most use cases, it’s usually just the preview host and the entry slug.
I’d like this functionality as well. A use case is having a single point of truth for route generation of entries. If I the Content Preview URL of an entry was returned in the GQL payload, it would make it much simpler to build links to entries. Instead, I need to both populate Contentful Preview URls as well as have seperate logic in my code that turns an entry into a URL.
