Display a document count in the title of a pane in Structure Builder

By RD Pennell

Add a count of documents to your Structure Builder panes


import { map } from 'rxjs/operators';

export const structure = (S, context) => {
  const { currentUser, dataset, projectId, documentStore, getClient, schema } = context;
    return S.list()
    .title('Sanity Loves Content')
            .listenQuery(`count(*[_type == '<type>'])`)
              map(count =>
                S.documentTypeList('<type>').title(`Total documents: ${count}`)

Within the Community Slack, we're often asked how to show the count of a given document type within a custom Desk structure. The documentStore and rxjs allow us to display a count inside of our title that updates in real time.
