UI Extensions allow you to extend the functionality of the Hygraph content editing experience by running custom applications within the CMS. UI Extensions can be used for a variety of use-cases, such as using your own Rich Text Editor, adding custom fields to let editors search and pick products from a Shopify catalog, integrating an asset picker for Cloudinary to bring all your asset views into Hygraph, and much more.
Developer teams have the ability to create custom content fields to be used within any content entry from the Schema Builder much like you would with any out-of-the-box Field Type.
We’ve taken our UI Extensions one step further with the introduction of Configurable Sidebar. This functionality gives project Administrators the ability to build a more tailored view of the sidebar displayed when creating content in Hygraph for content editors.
With this feature, Admins have the option to reorganize what is displayed through a secondary tab displayed in the Schema, and have the ability to customize the sidebar fields through the use of UI Extensions.
