js
export default {
  modules: ["@nuxtjs/strapi"],

Cases of use

Fetching and displaying single element

As a example we will add a global banner to our demo shop. At the beginning we created a single type on the Strapi collection, with fallowing fields

ts
interface {
  text: string; // short input field - this will represent a text that we want to display in the banner
  color: string; // short input field - this will represent a color of the banner (this can be done also with color picker filed, but for this example we will use input text)
}

The next step is to create a banner component

vue
<script setup lang="ts">
interface GlobalBanner {
  text: string;
  color: string;
}

const { findOne } = useStrapi();

const { data } = await findOne<GlobalBanner>("global-banner");
const bgColor = computed(() => data.attributes?.color || "#fff");
</script>
<template>
  <section>
    <div class="text-center py-1" :style="{ 'background-color': bgColor }">
      {{ data.attributes.text }}
    </div>
  </section>
</template>

Now we can add our component to the layout. frontends/templates/vue-demo-store/layouts/default.vue

vue
<template>
  <div>
    <GlobalBanner />
    <LayoutHeader />
    <LayoutNotifications />
    <main class="mx-auto">
      <slot />
    </main>
    <LayoutFooter />
  </div>
</template>

Fetching and displaying pages

WARNING

This example is written for the vue-demo-store template and assuming that you implemented Multiple CMS middleware

Create new collection type Page on the Stripe admin site with fields:

ts
interface {
  text: string; // Content page
  seoUrl: string; // Page slug
}

Composable for resolving components

ts
interface StripePage {
  text: string;
  seoUrl: string;
}
export function useSWStrapi() {
  const getPage = async (route: string) => {
    const { findOne } = useStrapi();
    const response = await findOne<StripePage>("pages", undefined, {
      filters: {
        seoUrl: route,
      },
    });
    return response;
  };

  const resolveComponent = async (route: string) => {
    const page = await getPage(route);
    if (!page.data[0]) return null;
    return h("div", {}, page.data[0].attributes.text);
  };

  return {
    resolveComponent,
  };
}

Provide Strapi resolver to the pageRenderMiddlewares

ts
const { resolveComponent } = useSWStrapi();
provide("pageRenderMiddlewares", resolveComponent);
