Dynamic Content AND layouts with contentful

Hi everyone,

I am trying to use plasmic with contentful to create re-useable sections that work across all pages, but I am little stuck trying to create a structure that makes sense, and I’m a little confused on how I can have plasmic display dynamic components based on data coming from contentful.

My data structure is as follows

  • Page
    • List of Sections
      • Component 1
        • Fields Related to Component 1
      • Component 2
        • Fields Related to Component 2
      • Component 3
        • Fields Related to Component 3

Here is a diagram for reference

How do I create a wrapper component that can draw components dynamically depending on the data received? I suppose the area mainly in question is in pink in the diagram. I want the layout of the page to change based on what users add in contentful.

This just allows for blocks of content to be moved across the site.

You can try using a Condition Guard.

I made an example project to test this out.

I created a Custom Component called Conditional Component.

I create 3 more Custom Components: Circle Component, Square Component and Triangle Component.

In Conditional Component I’ve added 3 Condition Guards (assuming you only have 3 types of components you wish to render dynamically), and set the condition to render based on the dynamic value of a prop. And in each Condition Guard I’ve added a the Circle, Square and Triangle components.

Now if the prop value is “circle” it will render Circle Component, “square” will render Square Component etc…

In your case, instead of using a text prop, maybe you can use a object or data prop and render the component based on a property of the data fetched
