Configurable Sidebar

This feature gives Project Administrators the ability to build a more tailored view of the sidebar displayed when creating content in Hygraph. Admins now have the option to reorganize what is displayed through a secondary tab displayed in the Schema, and the ability to customize the sidebar widgets through the use of UI Extensions.

  • Hygraph is just so easy to use. Creating new data models and populating them for use on the front end is intuitive and the interface is very clean. The product is designed in a way that it's obvious they were thinking about their users.

    E-Learning
  • Our team uses Hygraph to push breaking news stories to our project's webpage. The project is a part of a large non-profit initiative and the goal is to feature current content (news stories, celebrity endorsements). Authors are able to quickly add content to the CMS without sacrificing the high quality our readers expect.

What it is

Admins have the option to reorganize what is displayed through a secondary tab displayed in the Schema, and the ability to customize the sidebar widgets through the use of UI Extensions. In the following video, our very own Jamie Barton walks through creating a React Sidebar Widget to view SERP previews within the Hygraph content sidebar.

How to use it

Configurable Sidebar opens a whole new set of possibilities for accelerating content operations – from having widgets to translate content and check on SEO validations, to generating AI copy based on parameters set by you – the possibilities of what you can configure for your team are endless.

What's next

Hygraph is actively working on the creation of a directory of plug-and-play extensions for our users that will help with a multitude of common use cases. In the meantime, explore our updated UI Extensions documentation to learn more about the possibilities of what you can do with this feature.
