Discussion on using Google structured data schema in Sanity content modelling

4 replies
Last updated: Apr 27, 2020
A personal reflection that I have: as Sanity is focused on content modelling, wouldn't it be natural to propose thru a plugin a natural exposition to Google structured data schema for instance?
I'm implementing a collection of Events (json-ld structured data schemas from Google reference), but I feel a little bit like reinventing the wheel (on the top of localization).

I'm talking of the Event schema but the same thing applies to Article, BreadcrumbList, Person, Organization, Webpage... etc... etc...

I mean that it is finally bringin content to its achievement no?

Does Sanity has an opinion on that?

We have thought about this, and actually, nothing keeps you from re-creating schemas and publish them as plugins (for example
sanity install schema-org-event
That being said, from a practical standpoint I find the models a bit too fine-grained, not always editor friendly, and often not exactly fitting to what makes sense for a use case or organization. But it's probably a good place to find inspiration!
And you can still generate JSON-LD and compatible structures even if you don't have it 1:1 in the Studio, since you can remap fields etc.

And yeah, that's like, just our opinion, you are of course welcome to do what makes sense for you!

Thanks for the advice.I agree with you on the practical standpoint: I feel the same way.
Since Sanity is referencing data thru schema, it integrates well the real-time aspect of the problem.

We also find as a great starting point but probably not a good ending point. Their goals are a little different from ours, and the tools at their disposal are more primitive (harder to have references between models, so more is inlined). I always look at the models for anything I’m starting to model though and its proved worthwhile.
