Is there any ability to batch multiple queries into a single api call?
Mar 24, 2022, 4:04 AM
{"query1":*[_type == "post"]{title, content}, "query2":*[_type=="category"]{title}}

actually follow up question, what would be the proper way to drop in queryParams using the structure above?
Mar 24, 2022, 4:11 AM
What do you mean?
Mar 24, 2022, 4:12 AM
i think i got it, was referring to something like this
Mar 24, 2022, 4:12 AM
{
   "query1":*[_type == "post" && slug == $post_slug]{title, content}, 
   "query2":*[_type=="category" && slug == $cat_slug]{title}
}

I think that should work, make sure you serialize it before sending
Mar 24, 2022, 4:15 AM
.fetch({
   "query1":*[_type == "post" && slug == $post_slug]{title, content}, 
   "query2":*[_type=="category" && slug == $cat_slug]{title}
},{ $post_slug:'foo', $cat_slug:'bar'});

I’m thinking that should work right? ☝️
Mar 24, 2022, 4:16 AM
const res = fetch ('<https://foobar.api.sanity.io/v2021-10-21/data/query/production?query=>' + encodeURIComponent('QUERY HERE'))
Mar 24, 2022, 4:19 AM
this is essentially how I do it
Mar 24, 2022, 4:19 AM
Need to encode the query as a URIcomponent
Mar 24, 2022, 4:20 AM
Ok cool, thanks a lot appreciate the thoughts on this
Mar 24, 2022, 4:22 AM
Np. Basically you need to find your API address in the studio, then append your URI encoded query to the end of it.
Mar 24, 2022, 4:23 AM
This is a smart way to do it, just ran a test and it looks like you can’t do multiple queries like this using the sanity client
Mar 24, 2022, 4:26 AM
What do you mean?

{"sidebar":*[_type == "sidebar"]{title, content, "fileURL":pdf.asset-&gt;url},"contact":*[_type=="contact"][0],"pages":*[_type=="pages"]{title, "slug":slug.current},"settings":*[_type=="siteSettings"][0]{...,"logos":{"primary":logo1.asset-&gt;url, "secondary":logo2.asset-&gt;url},sponsors[]{title,"url":logo.asset-&gt;url}}}
Mar 24, 2022, 4:27 AM
^ This works fine in the sanity client
Mar 24, 2022, 4:27 AM
oh i see, you’re using projections… from your prior example was doing it a bit different
Mar 24, 2022, 4:29 AM
like taking a deep query and dropping into an object
Mar 24, 2022, 4:29 AM
{ myBigQuery: *[…]{ a bunch of stuff}, myOtherBigQuery: etc… }
Mar 24, 2022, 4:30 AM
All makes sense — sorry for the confusion
Mar 24, 2022, 4:31 AM
No problem 🙂

Coming from the GQL world, GROQ is quite impressive
Mar 24, 2022, 4:31 AM
I remember the gql wordpress days...🤮
Mar 24, 2022, 4:32 AM
This is my first go on a real project with Sanity and honestly I can’t imagine ever using another CMS after this
Mar 24, 2022, 4:32 AM
The level of control and customization is unmatched
Mar 24, 2022, 4:32 AM
It's incredible how intuitive it can be
Mar 24, 2022, 4:32 AM
But it also means I need to learn react, so...lol
Mar 24, 2022, 4:33 AM
Yep
Mar 24, 2022, 4:33 AM
Thankfully, I know the react world like the back of my hand so this has been smooth sailing
Mar 24, 2022, 4:33 AM
next.js + sanity = 😍
Mar 24, 2022, 4:34 AM
Hah, lucky you. I should learn react anyways so it's nbd. Sanity + Svelte has been like walking on water from a dev experience standpoint
Mar 24, 2022, 4:34 AM
ooh yeah I bet. Svelte is awesome, I’ve played around with it a bit
Mar 24, 2022, 4:35 AM
Just curious, do you do any freelance/contract work?
Mar 24, 2022, 4:36 AM
Have you used gatsby? That one looks intriguing
Mar 24, 2022, 4:36 AM
Yeah I'm a freelancer actually
Mar 24, 2022, 4:36 AM
Looks like your mountain time?
Mar 24, 2022, 4:36 AM
