Hi, I want to decorate the product page with some data. The data is loaded from a RoR application hosted in a remote server. It seems there many ways to do this: ScriptTags, App Proxy...

What is the best way?

Thanks

This is an accepted solution.

Hey @cgregnanin,

 

Is this for a single store? I so, you can modify the theme to send an AJAX request to your server.

 

If it's for multiple stores, a ScriptTag makes sense - but keep in mind every theme/product page is different, so inserting content is challenging.

 

An app proxy isn't required but can hide your server URL behind a local URL, for example:

store.myshopify.com/apps/hello -> forwards to yourapp.com/whatever.

Notice; Out of office, replies will be delayed until my return. Thanks!
