import exportDataset from '@sanity/export';
import {createClient} from '@sanity/client';

const configTemplate = {
    // Instance of @sanity/client configured to correct project ID and dataset
    client: createClient({
        projectId: process.env.projectId,
        dataset: process.env.datasetName,
        useCdn: false, // set to `true` to fetch from edge cache
        apiVersion: '2022-01-12', // use current date (YYYY-MM-DD) to target the latest API version
        token: process.env.API_TOKEN

    // Name of dataset to export
    dataset: process.env.datasetName,

    // Path to write tar.gz-archive file to, or `-` for stdout
    outputPath: process.env.outputPath,

    // Whether or not to export assets. Note that this operation is currently slightly lossy;
    // metadata stored on the asset document itself (original filename, for instance) might be lost
    // Default: `true`
    assets: true,

    // Exports documents only, without downloading or rewriting asset references
    // Default: `false`
    raw: false,

    // Whether or not to export drafts
    // Default: `true`
    drafts: true,

    // Export only given document types (`_type`)
    // Optional, default: all types
    // types: ['products', 'shops'],

    // Run 12 concurrent asset downloads
    assetConcurrency: 12

await exportDataset(configTemplate);
