Hi everyone

I'm new to the Shopify community so please forgive me if I'm posting this in the wrong place.

I am starting on building a Public app for Shopify and I started to develop it using Django and Shopify django sample app but the more I read the Shopify docs the more it seems Python even though supported isn't necessarily the most used/updated for all issues. Most docs and discussions are using Node or Ruby so I wanted to know is starting my project using Python a smart idea for Shopify ? 

 

I don't know Ruby at all so that might be tough to use but I could shift to Node if that will be more helpful in the longer run to build Shopify apps.

 

TIA

Node and Ruby seem to be more popular. Here is the shopify_app gem for Ruby: https://github.com/Shopify/shopify_app

shopify_cli enables you to create an app using either Node or Ruby: https://github.com/Shopify/shopify-app-cli

And I'm sure you've seen it but they have a tutorial on how to build a sample app using Node + React.

Yes, you're right. Shopify is opinionated towards jQuery, Node, Ruby, and React. Most libraries are updated for these languages. Unfortunately, my stack is Python / Django / Vue, which makes me feel painful all the time. There are very few docs regarding django + shopify. I am struggling with new session token authentication now.
