Filerobot plugin for Strapi v4

Strapi v4 plugin for Filerobot by Scaleflex

Intro

Strapi v4.x.x

To know which versions of Node goes with which versions of Strapi, refer to here: https://github.com/strapi/strapi/releases

If you are not familiar with using the Strapi CMS, here are some quick tutorials:

Strapi v4: https://docs.strapi.io/developer-docs/latest/getting-started/quick-start.html

Install Strapi CMS

You can run, for example: npx create-strapi-app@4.3.0

Plugin

https://www.npmjs.com/package/@filerobot-strapi/content-plugin

At this point, assuming that you already have a Strapi CMS installed and set up, and that you already have a super-admin user configured. It's time to install the Scaleflex Filerobot plugin for Strapi v4:

npm install @filerobot-strapi/content-plugin

(Use npm install @filerobot-strapi/content-plugin --legacy-peer-deps if you need to)

Run

yarn build

yarn start

Configure

Click "Filerobot by Scaleflex" on the left vertical menu (under the plugins section)

  • CNAME should be without https://
  • Folder can have a preceding / , but it's not necessary. So both /folder_name and folder_name are ok

Usage

Now you can make use of the "Synchronization Status" and "Trigger Synchronization" buttons.

Media Tab

The Media Tab keeps a "log" of all your media assets.

Note: when provider is local, the Hash is like a "unique name" generated by Strapi, and the Alt is like an "alternative name" generated by Strapi.

Indeed, there are 2 local images that are yet to be synchronized to the Filerobot platform.

And there are indeed 4 remote images on the Filerobot platform that are yet to be synchronized down to the Strapi CMS.

Trigger Synchronization

Afterwards, the logs will be updated:

Note: when provider is filerobot, the Hash is Filerobot's file -> hash -> sha1, and the Alt is Filerobot's file -> uuid.

FMAW Tab

When you Upload, the image will be uploaded to the Filerobot platform. Also, the same image (with Filerobot's URL) will go into the Strapi CMS:

If you know that eye.jpg only exists on the Filerobot platform (ie: haven't yet been synchronized down to the Strapi CMS), then you can check it and press "Add to Strapi":
