Migrating Metadata

I created a demo store so I can create a new theme for an existing store. Eventually I will upload the new theme to the exisiting store. I haven't found a way to migrate the metadata once I migrate the theme. 

Any ideas about doing this?

 

Thanks!

What metadata do you speak of?

Thanks for the reply!

If I use ShopifyFD  to create a video url field for each product on the dev site is there a way to move that field and field data over to the new site?

I am just starting with shopify so I am trying to figure out the best way to create custom fields. Then I had this realization that I don't want to add a bunch of fields if I can't migrate them once I'm done.

You have 2 shops then. Shop dev and Shop prod. Say you export/import your theme. Great. Now do the same with products. Great. Except your metafields on Products are missing. No biggy. With an API key for each shop, you can write some scripting in minutes that downloads your products from dev, extracts the metafields, and adds them to the prod shop. Lucky You!

That or you just manually make your metafields in the production shop. Haha!

Cool. So shopify has no way to transfer the metadata without using the API?

There is an app that you can use to import/export metafields...

https://apps.shopify.com/metafields2

Install on both stores and you should be good to go :)
