App Bridge, 1.27 useAppBridge()

Solved

I am trying to use the hook for App Bridge but it is blowing chunks because I don't know. Please assist. So I load the useAppBridge. I then call it. I then try and use it. But the browser barks back at me this Uncaught Error. I was assuming the call to the hook useAppBridge, would return an App Bridge instance. Apparently, I was wrong. What is the deal here?

 

    Uncaught Error: No AppBridge context provided. Your component must be wrapped in an AppBridge <Context> component.useAppBridge

      useAppBridge.js:16

 

 

import { Provider, TitleBar, useAppBridge } from '@shopify/app-bridge-react';
import { getSessionToken } from '@shopify/app-bridge-utils';

const instance = axios.create();
export default instance;

function MyApp() {
  const [status, setStatus] = useState();
  const app = useAppBridge();
  instance.interceptors.request.use(
    function (config) {
      return getSessionToken(app)  // requires an App Bridge instance
        .then((token) => {
          config.headers['Authorization'] = `Bearer ${token}`;
          console.log("Token from callback ", token);
          return config;
        });
    }
  );

This is an accepted solution.

Solved. Just had to ensure any call to useAppBridge() is in a component already a child of the Provider component, which instantiates App Bridge.

What happens when you try the sample that's listed in the Shopify docs? https://shopify.dev/tools/app-bridge/react-components/provider 

Specifically, this one sample. I'm still stuck in the Dark Ages using the Embedded App SDK and haven't played much with the App Bridge SDK...

import React from 'react';
import {Provider, useAppBridge} from '@shopify/app-bridge-react';
function MyFunctionalComponent() {
  const app = useAppBridge();
  return (
    <div>
      {(app) => {
        // Do something with App Bridge `app` instance...
        if (app) {
          app.getState().then((state) => console.log(state));
        }
        return <span>Hello world!</span>;
      }}
    </div>
  );
};
function MyApp() {
  const config = {apiKey: '12345', shopOrigin: shopOrigin};
  return (
    <Provider config={config}>
      <MyFunctionalComponent />
    </Provider>
  );
}
const root = document.createElement('div');
document.body.appendChild(root);
ReactDOM.render(<MyApp />, root);

That example fails. Shopify is sloppy in their examples BTW. As a brief explanation of that, note that they use a ReactDOM render call, but there is no import of ReactDOM. So that tells you how much care they took with this concept. Nearly none I suspect. So we need to be careful of copy and pasting their example code!!

Simply put. If I use an old school way of dealing with App Bridge, I do indeed get working code. For example, this code works:

 

 

import createApp from '@shopify/app-bridge';
window.app = createApp({
  apiKey: data.apiKey,
  shopOrigin: data.shopOrigin,
});
console.log("What is a window.app? ", window.app);

 

 

 

But this more modern code, supposedly in place, does not work. And that is what I am curious about.

 

 

import { Provider, TitleBar, useAppBridge } from '@shopify/app-bridge-react';
function MyApp() {
  const app = useAppBridge();
  console.log("And what is App from useAppBridge: ", app);

 

 

So in the one case, I get an App, in the other, errors.

    Uncaught Error: No AppBridge context provided. Your component must be wrapped in an AppBridge <Context> component.

I would like to know why that is. Seems simple enough. I am frustrated because my App only works when I load it after installing it. The install flow is broken due to something internal at Shopify, and my App during install ends up OUTSIDE an iframe, likely because App Bridge.

@HunkyBill I still have an simular problem

I have this code for axios:

const instance = Axios.create();

  instance.interceptors.request.use(function (config) {

    return getSessionToken(window.app).then((token) => {

    config.headers["Authorization"] = `Bearer ${token}`;

    return config;

  });

});

However that is thrwing the following error:

session-token.js?24e7:65 Uncaught (in promise) TypeError: Cannot read property 'subscribe' of undefined
at eval (session-token.js?24e7:65)
at new Promise (<anonymous>)
at eval (session-token.js?24e7:64)
at step (session-token.js?24e7:52)
at Object.eval [as next] (session-token.js?24e7:33)
at eval (session-token.js?24e7:27)
at new Promise (<anonymous>)
at __awaiter (session-token.js?24e7:23)
at getSessionToken (session-token.js?24e7:62)
at eval (install.js?9ca1:8)

On my _app I have component inside the Provider as you recommended.

 

function MyProvider(props) {
const app = useAppBridge();

const client = new ApolloClient({
fetch: authenticatedFetch(app),
fetchOptions: {
credentials: "include",
},
});

const Component = props.Component;

return (
<ApolloProvider client={client}>
<Component {...props} />
</ApolloProvider>
);
}

class MyApp extends App {
render() {
const { Component, pageProps, shopOrigin } = this.props;
return (
<AppProvider i18n={translations}>
<Provider
config={{
apiKey: API_KEY,
shopOrigin: shopOrigin,
forceRedirect: true,
}}
>
<ClientRouter />
<MyProvider
Component={Component}
{...pageProps}
shopOrigin={shopOrigin}
/>
</Provider>
</AppProvider>
);
}
}

MyApp.getInitialProps = async ({ ctx }) => {
return {
shopOrigin: ctx.query.shop,
};
};

export default MyApp;

Did you find any solution to this? Just want to create a reusable `axios` instance, but don't have `window.app` is undefined!

Pasting the updated code solution would be really helpful here.

AppBridge is now 2.0, and nothing I paste here would help. This issue is too old, and not relevant to the more modern App Bridge. That being said, I pointed out my error and how I fixed it.
