Resolving references in Sanity.io preview content on site

Last updated: Jun 8, 2020
One more question! I have a preview thingie based on this: https://www.sanity.io/docs/preview-content-on-site Now I want to consult a field on a reference (e.g.
document.property->nestedPoperty
), but the object passed in just contains the reference. How can I resolve the reference in this context?

I think you will need to query that data async, using the client.
something along the lines of:

import client from 'part:@sanity/base/client'

export default async function resolveProductionUrl(document) {

  const referencedDoc = await client.getDocument(document.property._ ref)

  return `<https://my-site.com/posts/${referencedDoc.property}>`
}
