Simple Reference Field

Contentful Simple Reference Field

Contentful provides a powerful mechanism to link to other entries, accessible on the UI trough the Reference field widget. Such field works perfectly for most of the cases, however, there are a few situations we may prefer a more minimalist widget, like when referencing to a less dynamic and populated content model. Let’s imagine that we have a content model Channel that is used to identify contents that are used in a website, mobile application, etc..

So, instead of using the Reference field and having to click and select from the modal the desired channel we can have instead a simple dropdown (select) or radio buttons, but maintaining the same reference data.

This project is based on Contentful UI extensions that are already deprecated for some time. It may still work but it's better to find a similar alternative that is using the App framework.
