Welcome to another tutorial where we will be building an application using the Shopify API. In this episode, we will focus on creating a simple discount application. We will target the GraphQL API and create a discount.
Building an Application with Shopify API
To begin with, let's set up our application using Shopify. We will create a Shopify application and select Node.js as our primary language. Once the application is ready, we can open it in our preferred code editor.
Creating a Simple Discount Application
Before we dive into the backend and frontend development, let's create the basic structure of our discount application. We'll start by setting up the navigation and creating a page for creating discounts. We'll also prepare our frontend to handle routing and display the necessary components.
Setting Up the Application
In this section, we will cover the process of setting up the backend and the frontend of our application. We will install the required dependencies and configure our project to work with Shopify's API. Additionally, we will set up the necessary tools to handle form submissions and user interactions.
Working with the Backend
Once our application is set up, we can start working on the backend logic. We will create mutations for the GraphQL API to handle discount creation and automation. We will walk through the process of creating mutations and handling errors. Additionally, we will establish a connection with the Shopify API using the authenticated fetch feature.
Calling Endpoints from React
After setting up the backend, it's time to move on to the frontend and start calling our endpoints from React. We will install the required dependencies and utilize the useAuthenticatedFetch hook to connect our application with the Shopify API. We will create functions to handle form submissions and update the UI accordingly.
Installing Dependencies for the Frontend
In this step, we will install a few dependencies that are essential for our frontend development. We will navigate to the frontend folder and use npm to install the necessary packages, including Shopify React Forms and Shopify React 18. These packages provide utilities and components that will simplify our development process.
Creating the User Interface
Now that we have installed the required dependencies, we can start building the user interface of our discount application. We will utilize Shopify Polaris components to create a clean and intuitive UI. We will create forms, buttons, and other interactive elements to allow users to configure and create discounts.
Handling Form Submissions
Once the UI is in place, we'll focus on handling form submissions. We will use the useForm hook to handle form state and form validation. We'll create functions to handle form submission, capture the form data, and make API requests to create discounts. We'll also implement error handling and display error messages if necessary.
Displaying the Summary and Saving the Changes
With the form submissions complete, we can now move on to displaying a summary of the user's selections and allowing them to save the changes. We will create components to display the selected discount type, active dates, and usage limits. We'll also create a primary action button to trigger the saving of the changes.
In this tutorial, we have built a simple discount application using the Shopify API. We covered the setup process, backend development, frontend development, and form handling. We successfully connected our application with the Shopify API, created discounts, and displayed a summary of the user's selections. Feel free to explore and expand upon this application to meet your specific needs.
