Displaying real-time data from external server in shopify

Hi,

I‘d like to connect my shopify store to an external server application that calculates numerical values every 30 seconds. These values should be automatically transferred to and displayed in the shopify store every 30 seconds in order these values are allways up to date according to the latest calculations of the external server application.

question: is this possible to realise? And what might be the easiest way to do it?

many thanks for your support

Kind regards

Nicolas

Hi. Sounds like you can extract the data from the third-party software and display on your website using some JavaScript code.

what’s the software? Have you checked if there’s app that allows the integration between the two already?

Hi CourtneyMiller

Many thanks for the quick answer.
The third party software is a self-written python program. So I guess, there are no apps already existing that can be used fir that purpose. Right?

Regarding the JavaScript-Code solution: would this allow to have the real-time data from the external source updated in the shopify store every 30 seconds?

Thanks again for your help

Hi @Nicolas20 ,

Where are you hoping to display the number on your Shopify store? If you're using it to update a product description, catalog, or something similar, you can simply use the Shopify APIs in your python program to do so.

If you're looking for a managed solution, I recommend you take a look at Shypyard, it's an integration platform for developers that will allow you to quickly connect your store with any third-party app. Take a look at the website. https://www.shypyard.io/ecommerce-integration-platform-for-developers. You can try it out for free too. 

Cheers!

Hi CourtneyMiller
Many thanks again for your help.
I would like to display the number directly in the upper part of the home page of the shop, in order the customer sees it directly when entering the shop and it should contino. Would you in this case still recommend the Shypyard platform or is another approach/tool more suitable?
Cheers
