Hi, I'm new to Shopify development and have a few questions about a Shopify app that I'm planning on developing. I was hoping that I could get some answers from people with more experience.
On a high level, I'm trying to create a Shopify app (that is not listed in the Shopify store) that will display server generated HTML code for product photos and descriptions and have them inserted into .liquid template files. For example, I want photos on my database to be turned into HTML code that then is inserted under a product listing. The approach I had in mind was to:
I was wondering if this sounds like a good approach - and I had some questions about implementation as well. If I could get some help back, I'd be very appreciative.
If I could get feedback I would be very appreciative. I'm new to this type of development and want to get started ASAP.
How do I automatically inject code into .template files so that the user doesn't have to mess with the code?
Not a good idea. How will you know where in the design/layout this should be added? How would you know what theme to add it to? You can't assume the merchant wants it added to the live theme, and you can't assume to know the location they want it at.
