Contentful Rich Text Renderer for Flutter

Rich Text renderer that parses Contentful Rich Text field JSON output and produces a Flutter Widget tree that can be displayed in a Flutter app.

Installation

To use this plugin, add contentful_rich_text as a dependency in your pubspec.yaml file.

Usage

Note: The json examples are samples of what Contentful's API can return. The getContentfulJson method is just a placeholder for where your code would call a method to get your data from the Contentful API.

Simple document with paragraph, no inline marks (bold/italic/underline)

Sample JSON
{
  "nodeType": "document",
  "content": [
    {
      "nodeType": "paragraph",
      "content": [
        {
          "nodeType": "text",
          "value": "Hello world!",
          "marks": []
        }
      ]
    }
  ]
}
Sample Dart implementation
import 'package:contentful_rich_text/contentful_rich_text.dart';

// getting data from Contentful, must be implemented in your project
// document will be a dynamic variable JSON map matching the above JSON
var document = getContentfulJson(); 

class Demo extends StatelessWidget {

@override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return ContentfulRichText(document).documentToWidgetTree;
    // Example widget tree produced:
    // Paragraph(
    //   Text(text: 'Hello World'),
    // );
  }
}

Simple document with paragraph, with bold and italic inline marks

Sample JSON
{
  "nodeType": "document",
  "content": [
    {
      "nodeType": "paragraph",
      "content": [
        {
          "nodeType": "text",
          "value": "Hello",
          "marks": [{ "type": "bold" }],
        },
        {
          "nodeType": "text",
          "value": " world!",
          "marks": [{ "type": "italic" }]
        }
      ]
    }
  ]
}
Sample Dart implementation
import 'package:contentful_rich_text/contentful_rich_text.dart';

// getting data from Contentful, must be implemented in your project
// document will be a dynamic variable JSON map matching the above JSON
var document = getContentfulJson();

class Demo extends StatelessWidget {

@override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return ContentfulRichText(document).documentToWidgetTree;
    // Example widget tree produced:
    // Paragraph(
    //   Text(
    //     text: '',
    //     children: <Widgets>[
    //       TextSpan(text: 'Hello', style: { fontWeight: FontWeight.bold }),
    //       TextSpan(text: ' world!', style: { fontStyle: FontStyle.italic }), 
    //     ],
    //   ),
    // );
  }
}

Simple document with paragraph, with bold and italic inline marks, using a custom renderer and mark

You can also pass custom renderers for both marks and nodes as an optional parameter like so:

Sample JSON
{
  "nodeType": "document",
  "data": {},
  "content": [
    {
      "nodeType": "paragraph",
      "data":{},
      "content": [
        {
          "nodeType": "text",
          "value": "Hello",
          "marks": [{ "type": "bold" }],
          "data": {}
        },
        {
          "nodeType": "text",
          "value": " world!",
          "marks": [{ "type": "italic" }],
          "data": {}
        }
      ]
    }
  ]
}
Sample Dart implementation
import 'package:contentful_rich_text/contentful_rich_text.dart';

// getting data from Contentful, must be implemented in your project
// document will be a dynamic variable JSON map matching the above JSON
var document = getContentfulJson();

var options = {
  renderMark: RenderMark defaultMarkRenderers = RenderMark({
    [MARKS.BOLD.value]: () => CustomBoldTextStyle, // returns TextStyle
  }),
  renderNode: RenderNode defaultNodeRenderers = RenderNode({
    [BLOCKS.PARAGRAPH.value]: (node, next) => CustomParagraph(next: next(node.content))
  })
}

class Demo extends StatelessWidget {

@override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return ContentfulRichText(document, options).documentToWidgetTree;
    // Example widget tree produced:
    // CustomParagraph(
    //   textStyle: CustomBoldTextStyle(),
    //   ...
    // );
  }
}

RenderNodes

RenderNodes are the various content nodes that Contentful sends for the Rich Text Widget. Blocks are block level items, and inlines are inline items.

Note: Not all of the nodes sent from Contentful are currently implemented. See below for the implementation status.

The renderNode keys should be the value of one of the following BLOCKS and INLINES properties as defined in contentful_rich_text/types:

  • BLOCKS

    • DOCUMENT
    • PARAGRAPH
    • HEADING_1
    • HEADING_2
    • HEADING_3
    • HEADING_4
    • HEADING_5
    • HEADING_6
    • UL_LIST // partially implemented, nested lists are not implemented yet
    • OL_LIST // partially implemented, nested lists are not implemented yet
    • LIST_ITEM
    • QUOTE // not implemented yet
    • HR
    • EMBEDDED_ENTRY // not implemented yet
    • EMBEDDED_ASSET // not implemented yet
  • INLINES

    • HYPERLINK
    • EMBEDDED_ENTRY (this is different from the BLOCKS.EMBEDDED_ENTRY) // not implemented yet
    • ENTRY_HYPERLINK // not implemented yet
    • ASSET_HYPERLINK // not implemented yet

RenderMarks

RenderMarks are the various text styles that can be applied to text inline.

Note: Not all of the marks sent from Contentful are currently implemented. See below for the implementation status.

The renderMark keys should be the value of one of the following MARKS properties as defined in contentful_rich_text/types:

  • BOLD
  • ITALIC
  • UNDERLINE
  • CODE // not implemented yet
