  • It's very helpful to use Hygraph features to ensure SEO in our content. The availability of HTTPS everywhere is a best thing. The structurization of data is also a great help.

  • Easy to set up and get started with. Versatile content modeling with flexible model relations and on-fly changes without the need or worry about API, GraphQL obviously, and a cherry on top - included CDN with image transformation. Oh wait, there are two cherries on top, Netlify integration being the other.

What are content views?

Custom Content Views and View Groups allow you to customize the presentation of your content entries, and the selection of content visible to an editor.

You can show or hide different columns and filter which content should be included in the group. This allows for an optimized editorial workflow, helping editors to quickly find the content that needs their attention.

Creating custom content views in Hygraph

  • Navigate to the content for one of your models, let’s go with tool for this one.
  • Create a change to the view by either filtering the content in the search bar at the top, or showing/hiding the columns. Let’s try filtering all the entries for tools that have a V in their Name.
  • At the top of the content window, press "Create Content View".
  • Provide a name and description and press Create. Let’s call this one Tools with V.

Working with custom Asset views

The same principles apply when creating Custom Views for assets.

  • Navigate to the assets view.
  • Create a change to the view by either filtering the content in the search bar at the top, or showing/hiding the columns. Let’s try filtering all the entries to create custom views for PNG, SVG, and JPG, to make it easier to categorize by format.
  • At the top of the content window, press "Create Content View".
  • Provide a name and description and press Create.
