I'm new to Shopify API as well as coding, hopefully this is not so stupid question.
What I'm trying to achieve:
Retrieving data from a custom field of product and display it on our headless shopify store
1. Find an App that allows me to add a custom field (probabaly a JSON) to the product.
2. Retrieving the data from custom field using Storefront API, looping through the object, and then display it however I want.
1. Does the approach make sense to experienced Shopify developers?
2. Is there a recommended App for custom field?
You'll also need to make sure you expose metafields to the Storefront API: https://shopify.dev/tutorials/retrieve-metafields-with-storefront-api#expose-metafields-to-the-store...
Not necessary but if you plan to store a lot of extra content in metafields it may make sense to use a separate CMS to manage the extra content then join the data together on the front-end (especially if content editors are less experienced, as updating metafields, especially in JSON isn't very user friendly).
Thanks a lot for the information!
Yes we need to edit a lot extra data. We will probably host the static site on Gatsby so I will check some CMS that works well with it.
