Settings

This package can be included in your frontity.settings.js file as one of the packages that will be part of your Frontity project.

The namespace for this package is googleAdManager. The object should be added to state.fills.

Each fill in the googleAdManager namespace is an object which should be assigned to an arbitrarily named key. The structure should be as follows:

state: {
fills: {
googleAdManager: {

Examples

Example with one ad:

export default {
packages: [
{
name: "@frontity/google-ad-manager",
state: {
fills: {
googleAdManager: {
belowHeaderAd: {
slot: "Below Header",
library: "googleAdManager.GooglePublisherTag",
priority: 5,
props: {
id: "div-gpt-below-header",
unit: "/6499/example/banner",
size: [320, 100],
},
},
},
},
},
},
],
};

If you need to add more than one ad you can give each object in the state.fills.googleAdManager object it's own key:

export default {
packages: [
{
name: "@frontity/google-ad-manager",
state: {
fills: {
googleAdManager: {
belowHeaderAd: {
slot: "Below Header",
library: "googleAdManager.GooglePublisherTag",
priority: 5,
props: {
id: "div-gpt-below-header",
unit: "/6499/example/banner",
size: [320, 100],
},
},
belowContentAd: {
slot: "Below Content",
library: "googleAdManager.GooglePublisherTag",
priority: 5,
props: {
id: "div-gpt-below-content",
unit: "/6499/example/banner",
size: [300, 600],
targeting: {
interests: ["sports", "music", "movies"],
},
},
},
},
},
},
},
],
};

Usage

Using the Slot & Fill pattern

The recommended usage of this component is using the Slot and Fill pattern. The configuration of the fill(s) is done in the state.fills.googleAdManager namespace in frontity.settings.js as explained above.

With this configuration we can then insert the Slots representing the Ads in any React component.

import { Slot, ... } from "frontity";
const MyComponent = () => {
return (
<>
...
<Slot name="Below Header" />
...
<Slot name="Below Content" />
...
</>
);
};
...
export default MyComponent;

Using the Ad component directly

Alternatively, since the Ad component is exposed in libraries, you can get the GooglePublisherTag component from libraries and render it wherever you wish.

const MyComponent = ({ libraries }) => {
const MyAd = libraries.fills.googleAdManager.GooglePublisherTag;
return (
<MyAd
unit="/unit/234"
size={[300, 600]}
/>
);
};
export connect(MyComponent);
