Static pages


InvenioILS provides additional functionality of defining static pages, in order to present addtional information for the end user. Example use case of a static page is 'About' or 'Contact' page.

InvenioILS allows adding the custom pages through admin panel: /admin/page, where it is possible to create new pages by clicking on Create button. The pages will be available under the routing specified in the creation form. The functionality is provided by invenio-pages module. Addtionally it is possible to GET the page created by REST API under /api/pages/<page_id> where expected payload is similar to the one below:

  "title": "test",
  "content": "<p>test</p> ",
  "id": "1",
  "description": "test",
  "url": "/about",
  "links": {
     "self": "https://localhost:5000/api/pages/1"

Frontend configuration

In the InvenioILS frontend client it is possible to provide a set of created static pages as a configuration variable. It is implemented by providing simple mapping between the page ID and the expected react routing:

export const staticPages = [
  { name: 'about', route: '/about', apiURL: '1' },
  { name: 'contact', route: '/contact', apiURL: '2' },
