Render Neos Content in Neos Form Framework Forms

This package adds a new Form Element Wwwision.Form.ContentReferences:ContentReferences to the default preset that allows to render Neos Content within Forms of the Flow Form Framework.

It includes:

  • Form Framework Element definition in Settings.yaml
  • The Fusion definition that is required to render the Content references from a given fusion path
  • A Fluid template that will be used when rendering the form with the default FluidFormRenderer
  • A Fusion prototype that will be used when rendering the form with the neos/form-fusionrenderer


Install this package using GIT:

git clone https://github.com/bwaidelich/Wwwision.Form.ContentReferences.git Packages/Application/Wwwision.Form.ContentReferences

And make sure to rescan the installed packages so that it is properly installed:

./flow flow:package:rescan

Note: This package requires the neos/form-builder package to be installed

In the Neos backend there's now a new Content Element type that can be added to node-based Forms:

Create Wizard

When selecting the element, Content references can be added in the Property Inspector:

Property Inspector

Note: This Form Element can't be used outside of node-based Forms because its rendering relies on the Neos Fusion runtime.

Disclaimer and further considerations

This package is merely an example that should demonstrate how the Form Framework & Builder can be extended. I would not recommend to allow editors to add arbitrary content to a Form but with that package as inspiration it should be easy to include custom elements.
