Configure external data

Uniform's Mesh framework lets you configure your project to access multiple external data sources through the Canvas UI. Mesh separates the integration from data source connection details, allowing your project to have multiple connections of the same type if necessary (such as Contentful Spaces). Mesh also allows for multiple data types for each data source (such as single entry, multiple entries, query).

For this exercise you will configure your project to access JavaDrip articles from a headless CMS. During the lesson you will:


  1. Configure a data source that represents a headless CMS.
  2. Configure a data type for the Article content type.
  3. Use the data type to display content from the headless CMS.
