# Bundle Component Descriptors

Elements such as pages, content, simple widgets, fragments, and static resources are classified as platform components on Entando. This page describes each of these elements with an example.

Currently, Entando supports the following component types:

component-types.png

Each component is defined by a descriptor YAML located in the bundle platform directory, inside the corresponding type as listed below. During the bundle pack phase, the descriptors are added to build the Docker images for the bundle.

Here is an example structure of a bundle project:

bundle-project/
...
  platform/
    assets/
    categories/
    contentTemplates/
    contentTypes/
    contents/
    fragments/
    groups/
    labels/
    pageTemplates/
      my-page-template.yaml
    pages/
      my-page.yaml
    widgets/
      my-widget.yaml
    resources/
      css/
        my-css-format.css
  ...
  entando.json		<= Bundle project descriptor

Note: Older names pageModels and contentModels for pageTemplates and contentTemplates, respectively, are still supported on Entando 7.1 but may be removed in a future release.

# Pages

This descriptor creates a page for a bundle. The page layout can be fully configured with a configuration widget. Page status can be published or draft.

Groups in a page descriptor are configured by ownerGroup and joinGroups. The ownerGroup property specifies the group of users who can manage the entity in the App Builder. The joinGroups property specifies those who can view or access the page. For example, setting ownerGroup to "free" means anyone with access to the App Builder can manage the page, whereas setting joinGroup to "free" means any end user can view the page in the application.

parentCode: homepage

# Contents

This descriptor enables content to be created and published via a bundle, according to the status property. The content ID is optional and enables linking from other components, like content widgets. It can be auto-generated or explicitly declared.

Groups in a content descriptor are configured by the owner group mainGroup and the join group groups. The owner group consists of users who can manage the content within the App Builder, while the join group consists of users who can view the content.

# Static Resources

The resources folder in the platform directory contains all static resources. These files will be uploaded to Entando using the same structure, found in the App Builder File Browser public folder.

platform/ 
   ...
   resources/  
       css/  
         styles.css  
       js/  
         script.js  
       images/  
         favicon.ico  
         logo.png  
       page.html

# Accessing Static Resources

To use static files in a Widget or Page Template, use the FTL tag <@wp.resourceURL /> with YOUR-BUNDLE-CODE. This code is a unique identifier that provides access to each bundle's resources.

# Determine YOUR-BUNDLE-CODE

  1. Use the ent CLI to fetch YOUR-BUNDLE-ID to formulate the code:
ent ecr get-bundle-id repo=url

It should return an 8 digit string of numbers and letters, e.g. bundle-id=8785d979.

  1. YOUR-BUNDLE-CODE is YOUR-BUNDLE-NAME-YOUR-BUNDLE-ID:

    If YOUR-BUNDLE-NAME=first-bundle and YOUR-BUNDLE-ID=8785d979, then YOUR-BUNDLE-CODE=first-bundle-8785d979

# Samples

Here are example tags to access static resources in a typical bundle:

  <img src="<@wp.resourceURL />bundles/YOUR-BUNDLE-CODE/images/logo.png">
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="<@wp.resourceURL />bundles/YOUR-BUNDLE-CODE/resources/css/styles.css">
  <link rel="shortcut icon" href="<@wp.resourceURL />bundles/YOUR-BUNDLE-CODE/images/favicon.ico" type="image/x-icon"/>
  <script type="application/javascript" src="<@wp.resourceURL />bundles/YOUR-BUNDLE-CODE/js/script.js"></script>
