[Neos] REST API for Neos content elements

Hey Pavlina

To use the NodeDataRepository you need to create a context which matches the created content to retrieve the content.

Examples can be found in NodeSearchService, where it takes the context and calls NodeDataRepository to fetch NodeData. This is then transformed into actual Nodes using the nodeFactory’s createFromNodeData method.

Once you have a node you can get it’s children through the available methods like getChildNodes.

If you create your own route you need to create the context manually, which can be done using the contextFactory. Search for “createContext” to find examples.

Hope this helps getting you started.
