Upgrading to v3 and splitting desk structure causes crashes in Sanity Studio

Last updated: Dec 19, 2022
Hey Sanity Team, I just upgraded a test studio to v3.. I am trying to split my desk structure up into parts, but I am not sure if I am doing this correctly (not using typescript).. This is a similar layout to the Hydrogen Studio starter. This MIGHT be a bug with the studio, but currently if you split your desk structure up into parts, then change something within one of those parts the studio crashes. Here is what I have:`sanity.config.js`:

plugins: [
  deskTool({
    structure
  }),
]
Then my
structure
which is just
index.js
in my /Desk folder:
import { home } from './home'

// Doc types
const hiddenDocTypes = (listItem) => {
  const id = listItem.getId()

  if (!id) {
    return false
  }

  return ![
    'homePage',
    'media.tag' // Media plugin
  ].includes(id)
}

export const structure = (S) =>
  S.list()
    .title('Content')
    .items([
      home(S),

      // Filter out docs already defined above
      ...S.documentTypeListItems().filter(hiddenDocTypes)
    ])
And finally my
home.js
structure schema:
// Icons
import { HouseLine } from 'phosphor-react'

export const home = (S) =>
  S.listItem()
    .title('Home')
    .icon(HouseLine)
    .child(
      S.editor()
      .title('Home Page')
      .schemaType('homePage')
      .documentId('homePage')
    )
Again, I am not sure if I am doing this correctly as there is really no other example of this other than the Shopify Hydrogen Studio.. If I make a change in the
home.js
my studo will crash.

I think the problem is with your const home. Needs to return the listItem
export const home = (S) => {
  return S.listItem()
    .title('Home')
    .icon(HouseLine)
    .child(
      S.editor()
      .title('Home Page')
      .schemaType('homePage')
      .documentId('homePage')
    )
}

Hey
user S
! To clarify, does the code you posted work but breaks after adding anything more to your home function?

Hey
user M
the studio only breaks when I manually refresh the page or sometimes it happens on its own... I'm still not entirely sure of the culprit or if I am just doing something wrong with how much desk structure is made. Here is a screenshot of what happens upon a manual page refresh or sometimes randomly (without a manual refresh):

I did try this beforehand, but my studio still crashes occasionally (no change from what happens initially).. Good suggestion though

For some reason when I rewrote the
home.js
as the following the studio did not crash (so this works):
export const home = (S) =>
  S.listItem({
    title: 'Home',
    id: 'homePage',
    icon: HouseLine,
    child: () =>
      S.document()
      .title('Home Page')
      .schemaType('homePage')
      .documentId('homePage')
    })
I am not sure why this is lol.. Any thoughts?

Hey
user M
just an update to this.. I found that I could use the regular schema and studio did not break if I added
basePath: '/studio'
into my sanity config. Probably because I have my studio and web folders to split up my project
