Lektor Tutorial - pt. 2

Models

written by Joseph Nix on 2017-04-26

Inside the models/ directory we have ini files that define what sort of content can be set in the Lektor CMS (admin), and how that data will be stored in the content/ directory. These are basic files just to get you started. For example, in page.ini a body field can be set to any markdown. blog-post.ini also has a markdown body field. To enable specific children of blog pages that are blog-posts, the model for [children] is set in blog.ini.


dev@host:~/projects/tutorial$ cd models/
blog.ini  blog-post.ini  page.ini
dev@host:~/projects/tutorial$ cat page.ini
[model]
name = Page
label = {{ this.title }}

[fields.title]
label = Title
type = string

[fields.body]
label = Body
type = markdown
dev@host:~/projects/tutorial$ cat blog.ini
[model]
name = Blog
label = Blog
hidden = yes

[children]
model = blog-post
order_by = -pub_date, title

[pagination]
enabled = yes
per_page = 10
dev@host:~/projects/tutorial$ cat blog-post.ini
[model]
name = Blog Post
label = {{ this.title }}
hidden = yes

[fields.title]
label = Title
type = string
size = large

[fields.author]
label = Author
type = string
width = 1/2

[fields.twitter_handle]
label = Twitter Handle
type = string
width = 1/4
addon_label = @

[fields.pub_date]
label = Publication date
type = date
width = 1/4

[fields.body]
label = Body
type = markdown
