Widgets

We've built a flexible widget framework to give superpowers to the Map Overview and the Description field in profiles.

With widgets, you can do the following:

To use widgets, start editing the Map Overview, or the Description of an element, connection, or loop, and type double square brackets [[]]. What you put inside the double square brackets depends on which widget you're using—you can read the rest of this article to learn more about each option.

Create lists of elements, connections, loops, or field values

The list widget allows you to create lists of elements, connections, and loops inside the Map Overview or a Description.

Basic lists of elements, connections, or loops

For a basic list, just type list/ inside your double square brackets, and then type elements, connections, or loops depending on what you want to list.

[[list/elements]]     --> Creates a list of all elements
[[list/connections]]  --> Creates a list of all connections
[[list/loops]]        --> Creates a list of all loops

List widget

All the items in the list are links—you can hover over a link to showcase an item on the map, or you can click a link to jump to the profile for that item.

Basic lists can also be sorted by any field in your profiles. To do so, add ?sort=field-name after elements, connections, or loops, and replace field-name with a slug of the field name you want to sort by.

[[list/connection?sort=strength]]
[[list/element?sort=net-worth]]

Add &desc=true to the end if you want to sort in descending order:

[[list/loop?sort=label&desc=true]]

More specific lists of elements, connections, or loops

To create a list that is more specific that "all elements", for example, you can type list and a selector in double quotes.

[[list "person"]]                   --> List elements with "Person" in the Type field
[[list ":from(person)"]]            --> List connections leading from "Person" type elements
[[list "['influence'='high']"]]     --> List items with "High" in the Influence field.

Having trouble writing the right selector for your use case? Feel free to email support!

Normally, it would be okay to write a selector with double quotes, e.g. ["influence"="high"]. But inside the list widget, you need to write it with single quotes instead: ['influence'='high'].

'influence' and 'high' are enclosed in single quotes, and the entire selector is enclosed in double quotes.

If you want to list all of an element's connections in it's profile, we wrote a more detailed article on how to achieve that.

These more specific lists, like basic lists, can also be sorted by any field in your profiles. To do so, add ?sort=field-name after list and before the selector, and replace field-name with a slug of the field name you want to sort by.

[[list?sort=net-worth "person"]]
[[list?sort=strength ":from(person)"]]

Add &desc=true to the end if you want to sort in descending order:

[[list?sort=type&desc=true "['influence'='high']"]]

Change the showcase behavior for lists of items

Kumu's showcase actually has three different "modes" to affect how it works:

  • normal mode showcases the selection plus any connections between the showcased elements (default)
  • loose mode showcases the selection plus neighboring elements
  • strict mode showcases only the selection itself, nothing else

By default, hovering over an item in the list widget will showcase that item in normal mode. You can override this default behavior by adding ?mode=loose or ?mode=strict.

For basic lists, add that modifier at the very end:

[[list/elements?mode=loose]]

For more specific lists, add the modifier after the word list:

[list?mode=strict ":from(person)"]

Lists of field values

To list all the values of a particular field, type list inside your double square brackets, followed by the field name in double quotes.

Simply include the field name in quotes in the standard list format.

[[list "Level of Influence"]]

When you hover over a field value in the list, Kumu will showcase all elements, connections, and loops that have that field value in their profile.
