Can anyone point us at up-to-date documentation for Private Apps? What documentation weI have been able to find is not in line with the current Shopify version and is not clear on the environment to develop the private app.
Our shop is up and running we want to build an app for ourselves, not to sell. So is a Dev shop a requirement for even private apps?
We want to use the new embedded SDK but all the documentation points at 3rd parties wanting to build apps to sell through the Dev shop.
We have mature development skills in house and are confident we can do what we want but just need to understand the environment for shop owners.
Because you want to use the Embedded App SDK you'll need to create the application from within the partners area. There is some configuration that needs to happen that can only be done there.
Applications created from the partners areas will just work, the only thing is they need to be approved to get listed on the Shopify App store but that isn't necessary for your application to be usable.
