What is Live Reload?

Add Custom Event Listener

Types of events

As a developer, you are able to add customizations such as alert/notification functions for these different events:

  1. gevme-content-created
  2. gevme-content-updated
  3. gevme-content-deleted
  4. gevme-content-reorder
  5. gevme-header-updated
  6. gevme-livebar-updated

Common use cases

Common use cases for addEventListener:

  • Trigger notification alert dialog on the webpage when a block is created
  • Scroll automatically to the block that was just updated
  • Re-initialize 3rd party script SDK
  • Send data for analytics service and many more.


You may write your own custom logic as such

document.addEventListener("gevme-content-created", (event) => {
  const contentBlockThatJustGotCreated =;
  // do something with this block

document.addEventListener("gevme-content-updated", (event) => {
  const oldBlock =;
  const newBlock =;
  // do something with this block

document.addEventListener("gevme-content-deleted", (event) => {
  const contentBlockThatJustGotDeleted =;
  // do something with this block

Event Body

Body of each events are as such:

'gevme-content-created', { detail: { data: ContentBlock } };

'gevme-content-updated', { detail: { data: { old: ContentBlock, new: ContentBlock } } };

'gevme-content-deleted', { detail: { data: ContentBlock } };

'gevme-header-updated', { detail: { data: Header } };

'gevme-livebar-updated', { detail: { data: Livebar } };

'gevme-content-reorder', { detail: { data: { order: number; id: string; name: string; } } };

'gevme-content', { detail: { data: data } };
