External module Schema

This module is for defining Content and Collection schemas to normalize nested JSON response data in redux state store.

Normalizr takes JSON and a schema and replaces nested entities with their IDs, gathering all entities in dictionaries.

  • Entities can be nested inside other entities, objects and arrays;
  • Combine entity schemas to express any kind of API response;
  • Entities with same IDs are automatically merged (with a warning if they differ);
  • Allows using a custom ID attribute (e.g. slug).

Since everything is a Content in sensenet we're working with Content and collection of Content in most of the cases. So the sn-redux Schemas module defines the two neccessarry main schema, content and arrayofContent to work with. This two schemas help you to normalize your JSON responses so that you can create a pure and flexible client-side datasource.

Example of normalizing the JSON response of a SenseNet OData Action for fetching Content as arrayOfContent schema which will create an entities object.

export const requestContent = <T extends IContent = IContent>(path: string, options: IODataParams<T> = {}) => ({
 async payload(repository: Repository) {
     const data = await repository.loadCollection({
         oDataOptions: options,
     return normalize(data.d.results, Schemas.arrayOfContent)



Const arrayOfContent

arrayOfContent: Array = new schema.Array(contentItem)

Schema of a Collection.

It represents the children object of the sensenet redux store. It's a parent element of the Content items so it is defined as array of items with the schema content.

Const contentItem

contentItem: Entity = new schema.Entity('entities', {}, { idAttribute: 'Id' })

Schema of a Content.

It represents an item in the entities Object of the sensenet redux store. The items are identified by the attribute 'Id'.
