Then, register it as an addon in .storybook/main.{js|ts}.

Usage

Plugin

When registered, The plugin will automatically add the required decorators to your storybook. You can then use the contentfulPreview parameter to connect your storybook to contentful. The decorators will be ignored, if the contentfulPreview parameter is not set.

This addon contributes the following parameters to Storybook, under the contentfulPreview namespace:

Name Type Description Required
spaceId string The space id of your contentful space Yes
accessToken string The access token of your contentful space Yes
entryId string The entry id of the content you want to preview Yes
locale string The locale of the content you want to preview No
host string The host of the contentful api (defaults to api.contentful.com No
livePreview boolean Enables the live preview sdk No
argsMutator function Mutator for the loaded entry data. By default, all fields will be populated as top-level args to the story No

Define Parameters

You can set the parameters globally, by adding the contentfulPreview parameter to the globals object of your .storybook/preview.js file (example).

import type {Preview} from "@storybook/react";

const preview: Preview = {
  parameters: {
    globals: {
      contentfulPreview: {
        space: "<space-id>",
        accessToken: "<access-token>",
        host: 'preview.contentful.com',
      }
    }
  },
};

export default preview;

You can also set the parameters per story, by adding the contentfulPreview parameter to the story (example)

export default {
  title: 'Button',
  parameters: {
    contentfulPreview: {
      spaceId: 'your-space',
    }
  }
}

The parameters set on the story level will override the global parameters.

Decorators

withContentful

When you want to preview your component with contentful data, you can use the withContentful decorator. This decorator will fetch the data from contentful and pass it to your component.

import {withContentful} from 'storybook-addon-contentful-preview';

  title: 'Button',
  decorators: [withContentful],
  parameters: {
    contentfulPreview: {
      spaceId: 'your-space',
      accessToken: 'your-access-token',
      entryId: 'your-entry-id',
    }
  }
};

withContentfulLivePreview

When you want to preview your component with contentful data, you can use the withContentfulLivePreview decorator to enable the live preview sdk. This decorator will fetch the data from contentful and pass it to your component when renderer inside the contentful UI.

import {withContentful, withLivePreview} from 'storybook-addon-contentful-preview';

export default {
  title: 'Button',
  decorators: [withLivePreview, withContentful],
  parameters: {
    contentfulPreview: {
      spaceId: 'your-space',
      accessToken: 'your-access-token',
      entryId: 'your-entry-id',
      livePreview: true,
    }
  }
};

      argsMutator: (entry, args) => {
        return {
          ...args,
          // ...entry.fields  <-- default behaviour
