Resource for "/"

Hiya! I want to have a "home" page at the "/" route. For the life of me I cannot figure out how to have it work. I currently have the page I want in pages/home/index.tsx.

Hi @itsjamesmurray. I'm kapa.ai, your friendly support bot. I will try to answer your question by searching through the knowledge base. :wave: ---------------------- Hello! In refine, you can define a "home" page at the "/" route by using the NavigateToResource component or by defining an action route as / in any one of your resources. If you're using Next.js, you can use the NavigateToResource component to redirect to the posts resource when the user visits the home page. However, it's better to handle such redirect operations on the server side rather than the client side. You can use the getServerSideProps function to redirect the user to the /posts. Here's an example:
import { NavigateToResource } from "@refinedev/nextjs-router";

export default function Home() {
return <NavigateToResource />;
}
import { NavigateToResource } from "@refinedev/nextjs-router";

export default function Home() {
return <NavigateToResource />;
}
(Source: refine.dev docs (https://refine.dev/docs/packages/documentation/routers/nextjs)) Alternatively, you can define an action route as / in any one of your resources. The home icon in the Breadcrumb will be rendered if you define an action route as / in any one of your resources. It will be rendered with the home icon regardless of the current route. You can also hide the home icon by setting showHome to false. Here's an example:
[
{
name: "dashboard", // name of the resource is not important for the `useBreadcrumb` hook
list: "/", // If any one of your resources has a list action with `/` route, the home icon will be rendered
}
]
[
{
name: "dashboard", // name of the resource is not important for the `useBreadcrumb` hook
list: "/", // If any one of your resources has a list action with `/` route, the home icon will be rendered
}
]
(Source: refine.dev docs (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/hooks/useBreadcrumb)) Please note that in earlier versions of refine, the <Refine> component had accepted DashboardPage which could be used to add an index page to your app. But with the changes in routerProvider API of refine, DashboardPage is deprecated. You can now define an index route yourself manually by your router package. I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions. ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai now when I go to http://localhost:3000/ it redirects to http://localhost:3000/home and I see what I want. Any way to make that page just hosted on http://localhost:3000/?

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- Based on the information provided in the extracts, there isn't a direct way to host a page at <http://localhost:3000/> without redirection. However, you can try to define a resource with a list action route as /. This way, when you navigate to <http://localhost:3000/,> it should display the list page of that resource. Here's an example:
[
{
name: "home",
list: "/",
}
]
[
{
name: "home",
list: "/",
}
]
Please note that the name of the resource is not important for the useBreadcrumb hook. If any one of your resources has a list action with / route, the home icon will be rendered. This is not a direct solution to your question, but it might help you achieve what you want. For more detailed information, you might want to check the official refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai its just a static page in pages/home/index.tsx, no list page.
now i have a situation where it isnt throwing an error, but it is not serving the actual content unless I am at https://localhost:3000/home

Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- If you have a static page that you want to serve at the root URL (<http://localhost:3000/>), you should place your page in the pages/index.tsx file instead of pages/home/index.tsx. In Next.js, the file pages/index.tsx corresponds to the / route. So, if you move your static content to pages/index.tsx, it should be served when you navigate to <http://localhost:3000/.> Here's an example of how your pages/index.tsx could look:
export default function Home() {
return (
// Your static content goes here
);
}
export default function Home() {
return (
// Your static content goes here
);
}
Remember to remove or comment out the NavigateToResource component if you have it in your pages/index.tsx, as it would cause a redirect to the posts resource. Please note that this solution is based on the standard behavior of Next.js and not specific to refine. For more information, you can check the Next.js documentation (https://nextjs.org/docs/basic-features/pages). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------

@kapa.ai and how can i make that root URL be an option in the sidebar?
kapa.ai
kapa.ai10mo ago
Let me check the knowledge base for you. One moment! :books: ---------------------- To add the root URL as an option in the sidebar, you can use the resources prop of the <Refine> component. You can define a resource with a list action route as /. This way, when you click on the resource in the sidebar, it should navigate to the root URL (<http://localhost:3000/>). Here's an example:
<Refine
resources={[
{
name: "Home",
list: "/",
// other actions like edit, show, create if needed
},
// other resources
]}
// other props
/>
<Refine
resources={[
{
name: "Home",
list: "/",
// other actions like edit, show, create if needed
},
// other resources
]}
// other props
/>
In this example, "Home" will appear as an option in the sidebar. When you click on it, it will navigate to the root URL. Please note that this solution assumes that you're using the new routing system in refine. If you're using the legacy routing system, the DashboardPage prop of the <Refine> component can be used to add an index page to your app. However, DashboardPage is deprecated in the new routing system. For more information, you can check the refine documentation (https://refine.dev/docs/api-reference/core/components/refine-config). ---------------------- Note: you can ask me a follow up question by @ mentioning me again :speech_balloon: ----------------------
