Modules are the top level building blocks of a Slicknode project. They contain reusable pieces of functionality that you can flexibly combine and extend in your projects. You can add built-in or existing modules to your project by just adding them as a dependency, or you can create your own modules where you organize your custom types and business logic.

Install Modules

Slicknode provides built-in modules with the most common functionality.

Let's install a module for content management, versioning and one for image management. In your terminal, install the content and image modules:

slicknode module add image content

This will add the modules to the dependencies in your slicknode.yml file. Your slicknode.yml file should look something like this:

  auth: latest
  core: latest
  relay: latest
  image: latest
  content: latest

You now have image support and can create types that automatically have functionality for localiztion, versioning and publishing workflows. You'll get to that in the next step when you create your custom types.

Deploy API

Let's deploy this to the Slicknode Cloud to create the GraphQL API:

slicknode deploy

This will ask you for a name of the project, select a region for the project etc.
