Add a headless cms to a Svelte app in 4 minutes

Adding advanced CMS capabilities to any Svelte application is not that hard. In this guide, we will show how you can add ContentChef as your headless cms solution. Or simply start a new one with our Sapper starer.

Setting up

We will use the example content that comes packed with every trial account of ContentChef, so to get started, you need to start the 30-day free trial. After registering here, note down your SpaceId and Online API key that you find right in your dashboard home page.

SpaceId & Online API Key

You also need the channel ID that for this demo is "example-ch".

And this is an example of the payload of content JSON we will get from our Delivery API, it's a simple content repesenting a website with a url, a title and a image.

        "title": "ContentChef",
        "description": "Accelerate content management for any digital experience.",
        "url": "",
        "image": "demo-xxx/7vZXiMPqEg7/contentChef-logo"

We suppose that you already have a working Svelte app or just clone from GitHUB our Sapper starer with evrything in place.

Now it's time to add the ContentChef Javascript SDK with the simple npm command(you can kip thi step if you are using our starter!):

# install it using npm
npm i --save @contentchef/contentchef-node

# or if you use yarn
yarn add @contentchef/contentchef-node

Adding content to a Svelte Component

Start by creating a support js file where you can instantiate the ContentChef client with the data you have noted down before. We also create a little helper function to transalte the image publicID we get in the JSON payload in a full URL.

import { configure, createUrl } from '@contentchef/contentchef-node';

const client = configure({
    spaceId: '<YOUR_SPACEID>'

export const onlineChannel = client.onlineChannel('<YOUR_ONLINE_API_KEY>', '<YOUR_CHANNEL>');

export const getImageUrl = (publicId) => {
    return createUrl(publicId);

And now, let's integrate into a simple Svelte page component , by loading a list of contents from ContentChef and rendering them.

<script context="module">
    import {onlineChannel} from '../../contentChef.js';

    export async function preload(page, session) {
        const response = await{contentDefinition: 'top-site', skip: 0, take: 100});
        return { sites: };

    import Card from '../../components/Card.svelte';
    import {getImageUrl} from '../../contentChef.js';
    export let sites;

    h1, figure {
        text-align: center;
        margin: 0 auto;
    h1 {
        font-size: 2.8em;
        text-transform: uppercase;
        font-weight: 700;
        margin: 0 0 0.5em 0;
    figure {
        margin: 0 0 1em 0;
    @media (min-width: 480px) {
        h1 {
            font-size: 4em;

    <title>Sites from ContentChef</title>


    {#each sites as site}
        <a rel="prefetch" href="/sites/{site.publicId}">
            <Card thumbnail={getImageUrl(site.payload.image)} title={site.payload.title} url={site.payload.url} description={site.payload.description} />

You also need the Card component that we use here.

    export let thumbnail;
    export let title;
    export let url;
    export let description;

    .container {
        display: flex;
        box-shadow: 10px 7px 9px 4px #ccc;
        margin-bottom: 30px;
        height: 200px;

    .right-container {
        width: 100%;
        display: flex;
        flex-direction: column;

    .right-container > * {
        flex-grow: 1;
        display: flex;
        align-items: center;
        justify-content: center;

    .left-container img {
        height: 100%;

<div class="container">
    <div class="left-container">
    <div class="right-container">
        <p><a href={url}>{url}</a></p>

And now you have evritying in place!

Your Svlete page component now is powered by ContentChef Delivery API. Of course, this is a simple example, and maybe you need more advanced features or you want to optimize the number of calls to our API (discover how you can eagerly fetch multiple contents with a single request in our docs).

Headless CMS for several frontend stacks including

React, VueJs, React Native, Go, Java, Kotlin, Swift, and many more!


ContentChef is a highly reliable, headless CMS that lets content creators edit and manage content efficiently. At the same time, developers receive structured data that they can access via our API. Simply put, ContentChef separates the content hub and your product’s frontend. As a result, you can deliver your content wherever you need it – be it your website, mobile app, or IoT device.

From the Svelte website: "Svelte is a radical new approach to building user interfaces. Whereas traditional frameworks like React and Vue do the bulk of their work in the browser, Svelte shifts that work into a compile step that happens when you build your app."

From the Sapper website: "Sapper is a framework(built on Svelte) for building web applications of all sizes, with beautiful development experience and flexible filesystem-based routing.Unlike single-page apps, Sapper does not compromise on SEO, progressive enhancement, or the initial load experience — but unlike traditional server-rendered apps, navigation is instantaneous for that app-like feel."

ContentChef is "headless," which means we do not host or render your frontend templates. ContentChef offers a fast way to model and serve content trough a Rest API and JSON so you can display wherever it is needed. We also provide a beautiful editorial console for your content creators.

Why is ContentChef the perfect fit for my Svelte Apps?

Every SPA, PWA, or whatever type of web app you create needs content such as assets and data. Using hardcoded dummy data in your Svelte app during development can later lead to various problems and is far from efficient. That’s why feeding your app with data via an API is the smartest and most suitable solution. If requirements change, all you have to do is rewrite your API calls to get different data for your app.

First, create an account and start your 30-day trial. Then, take your first steps with ContentChef by following starter to integrate in less than 5 minutes.

Create an account and leverage the 30-day trial. No credit card required!

No, since ContentChef is a fully managed SaaS, we take care of these things for you!
