Content API

The Content REST API is a read-only API for delivering content from Statamic to your frontend, external apps, SPAs, and numerous other possible sources. Content is delivered as JSON data.

Pro Feature

Enable the API

Enable the API in your config or with an environment variable.

// config/statamic/api.php
'enabled' => true,
STATAMIC_API_ENABLED=true

Endpoints

https://yourdomain.tld/api/{endpoint} You may send requests to the following endpoints:

Customizing the API URL

You may customize the route in your API config file or with an environment variable.

// config/statamic/api.php
 'route' => 'not_api',
STATAMIC_API_ROUTE=not_api

Filtering

You may filter results by using the filter query parameter.

/endpoint?filter[{field}:{condition}]={value}

You may use the conditions available to the collection tag. eg. contains, is, isnt (or not), etc. For example:

/endpoint?filter[title:contains]=awesome&filter[featured]=true

This would filter down the results to where the title value contains the string "awesome", and the featured value is true. When you omit the condition, it defaults to is.

Sorting

You may sort results by using the sort query parameter:

/endpoint?sort=field

You can sort in reverse by prefixing the field with a -:

/endpoint?sort=-field

You may sort by multiple fields by comma separating them. The reverse flag can be combined with any field:

/endpoint?sort=one,-two,three

Selecting Fields

You may specify which top level fields should be included in the response.

/endpoint?fields=id,title,content

Pagination

Results will be paginated into 25 items per page by default. You may specify the items per page and which page you are viewing with the limit and page parameters:

/endpoint?limit=10&page=1

The response will contain your data, links to easily get next/previous URLs, and meta information for more easily creating a paginator.

Customizing Resources

By default the resources generally use the item’s Augmented data.

You are free to override the resource classes with your own, in turn letting you customize the responses.

In a service provider, use the map method to define the overriding resources:

use App\Http\Resources\CustomEntryResource;
use Statamic\Http\Resources\API\Resource;
use Statamic\Http\Resources\API\EntryResource;

class AppServiceProvider extends Provider
{
    public function boot()
    {
        Resource::map([
            EntryResource::class => CustomEntryResource::class,
        ]);
    }
}
<?php

namespace App\Http\Resources;

use Statamic\Http\Resources\API\EntryResource;

class CustomEntryResource extends EntryResource
{
    public function toArray($request)
    {
        return [
            'id' => $this->resource->id(),
            'title' => $this->resource->value('title'),
        ];
    }
}
