I created my first Shopify app recently for the app challenge, I used Python and found it took me quite a while to fully understand the entire app flow (there's a lot to digest). I decided to create a very small, simple but complete app for Shopify. I've posted it to GitHub and it is free to use for anyone:
Hopefully this helps anyone starting out wanting to use Python get going a bit faster.
If you have questions or issues, just let me know here and I'll be happy to help where I can.
Thank you for sharing this :cathappy:
Your walk through is going to a 404 https://github.com/garettB/shopify-flask-example/blob/master
Thanks for sharing your tutorial! It is very helpful. I am having an issue where right after I select my development store to test the app, it takes me to a page that says:
"Oauth error invalid_request: The redirect_uri is not whitelisted"
I have double checked that the ngrok link in the Shopify app setup is the same as the one in config.py. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
@garettbeuk thanks for the amazing app solution
I am trying to build an app that syncs the store data into custom ERP, so I want to get the order data from Shopify and send it to ERP. can you tell me how I can access those orders data
@AvidBrio thanks, glad you found it helpful!
I haven't done what you're explaining via an app; it may be good to post separately and get some input from someone with experience.
If you figure out how to accomplish it using an app, I hope my boilerplate continues to be useful to you.
@garettbeuk Based on your code https://github.com/garettB/shopify-flask-example/blob/master/src/shopify_client.py how to call Shopify API (For example order data ) can you please help
Hi Garett! Thanks for sharing your work with the community. Can you include a scripttag creation demo in the project as well?
Hi @zahraazeem98 , the code as a `create_script_tag` function in the shopify_client, is it not working for you?
I wanted to keep the code away from doing anything apart from a boilerplate, but if you're experiencing issues adding the script tag creation code let me know what you've tried and I can try to help out.
@garettbeuk thanks for responding back. I was wondering that how can make the js file run with the flask? What I'm doing right now is that I created a scripttag.js file in the src directory and called the create_script_tag function in the app installation function to create a scripttag when the app is installed. Now that the scripttag is created, it's unable to get that file. So, do I need to host that file some elsewhere or is there any way to link it with the python script?
Really nice stuff!
I also did something similar but it contains a bit more stuff and has a code structure that you can easily adapt to fit your needs. Checkout the blog post on this page that also contains the link to the repo.
Thanks TigersAndTacos & esp. garettbeuk!!
There doesn't seem to be many Python developers on Shopfy 😞
I'm not sure if I found it on your blog or ...? but are you using
Are they any problems/issues with it? Is this the only bootstrap+polaris?
🙏 @SteveTT , Yes, I'm using the bootstrap polaris that you linked to, its quite ok to work with if you are familiar with Bootstrap 4. Ill make sure to update the blog post to make it clear and give some cred to the people behind that project.
bootstrap-polaris is a real lifesaver coming from Bootstrap!
I had a question about it and perhaps a someone will read this and know the answer. Is it possible to for the banner (in bootstrap-polaris) to be dismissable? It seems to be a Shopify requirement:
Or what would be an alternate way show into, errors, warnings, etc?
It doesnt look like the banners are dismiss-able in bootstrap-polaris.
Creating that JS snippet shouldnt take much time to do, can see if I get some time between work and kids to create a PR for it.
Meanwhile you could display information using the toast, not ideal but at least something that should make it a bit clear for the user. The JS parts of it can be found here: https://github.com/ablesense/bootstrap-polaris/blob/master/demo/bootstrap-polaris.js
