Dynamic Content Accelerators

The accelerators are a collection of content type schemas for some of the most useful types of content including banners, sliders and blogs. The accelerators also include custom cards and visualizations for each of the content types and code to render the content responsively. We've made it easier to configure the accelerators by including the content type schemas in the schema examples.

Pre-requisites

Once you've registered the schemas on this page, you need to do some additional configuration. Install the content rendering service templates and transformation templates as explained in the configuration guide. Once installed, these templates will render the visualizations and custom cards.

How to use

Each of the content type schemas has an icon, custom card and visualization. Some of the schemas include references to other schemas, as noted below.

You should ensure that the partials schema is created on your hub because it includes definitions that are used in several schemas.

Icons

Icons for each of the content types can be found in the "Potter" icon library in the "Choose content type icon" section of the registration window.

Each content type has its own icon which you set up in the registration window
Each content type has its own icon which you set up in the registration window

Custom cards

Configure the following custom card URL for each of the content type schemas:

https://{{vse.domain}}/v1/content/demo/content-item/{{content.sys.id}}?template=acc-template-cardsPreview
Configure a custom card for each of the content types
Configure a custom card for each of the content types

Visualizations

Add the following visualization to each of the content type schemas:

https://{{vse.domain}}/v1/content/demo/content-item/{{content.sys.id}}?template=acc-template-visualization
Each content type also includes a visualization
Each content type also includes a visualization

The banner consists of an image, header, subheader, description and call to action link. You also have control over the placement and color of the text. In order to use this content type, ensure that the accelerator partials is created on your hub and that the image content type is registered.
