Hi App Developer Community,

The new Shopify Admin API library for Node is here! This library makes interacting with the Admin API easy and works with any backend framework (Koa, Express, etc). 

This new library includes all the key features we believe developers are looking for when building a Shopify app, including:

  •   JWT Based Authentication
  •   REST / GraphQL Clients
  •   GraphQL Proxy 
  •   Cursor Based Pagination
  •   Webhooks subscription helpers and HMAC validation 

The existing `koa-shopify-auth` package has also been updated to use this new library [migration guide here], as well as our Node & React tutorial and the Shopify App CLI. For some more examples of its usage, please visit the Getting started guide in the GitHub repository.

The future of Shopify Admin API libraries

Shopify is actively updating all our Admin API libraries in 2021 and this new Node library is the first to be released. Our goal is to create a suite of open-source libraries consistent in functionality across a variety of languages and Shopify’s app best practices. We also have future plans to build enhanced experiences on based on these libraries (tutorials with code samples and requests in API references in your language preference).

We want your input to make the libraries as useful as possible, to enable the developer community to get their apps on the Shopify App Store as soon as possible.
