Introduced in InvenioRDM v11
InvenioRDM supports an easy "out-of-the-box" way of creating static pages, basically web pages for which the HTML content is stored in the database and you can, in the future versions of InvenioRDM, change it using the administration panel.
To add the new static pages, create a file named
pages.yaml in the
app_data/ └── pages.yaml
Then, inside the file, define the URL, the title, the description and the HTML template of each static page:
# list of pages: - url: /help/search title: Search guide description: Search guide template: search_guide.html
InvenioRDM will look for the content of each static page in the
template HTML file, located in a new sub-folder named
app_data/ └── pages └──search_guide.html
The HTML file content is what will be imported in the database and rendered to the user when navigating to the page's URL.
To load the new static page to your instance, you have 2 options:
Run the instance setup command
invenio-cli services setup: the command will find the pages defined as above and load them. Warning: this command will delete all your data!
In a previously created instance folder, run:
pipenv run invenio rdm pages create
You can use the
--force option to wipe out all previously created static pages and load them again.
