    0.7.1 • Public • Published

    Nacelle PushOwl Nuxt Module npm version

    Requirements

    • A Nacelle project set up locally. See https://docs.getnacelle.com for getting started.
    • IMPORTANT: Only Shopify store backend is supported currently.
    • PushOwl app installed on your Shopify store.

    PushOwl features available through this plugin

    • Show prompts to collect subscribers
    • Automation: Welcome Notification
    • Automation: Shipping Notifications
    • Automation: Abandoned Cart Recovery
    • Automation: Browse Abandonment
    • Automation: Price Drop
    • Automation: Back in Stock

    Setup

    1. Install module

    Once you have Nacelle and PushOwl set up you can install this module in your project from Github Packages through npm (or yarn):

    Install the package:

    npm i @pushowl/nacelle-nuxt-module
    

    2. Add module to app

    After the package has installed, open nuxt.config.js. Under modules add @pushowl/nacelle-nuxt-module to the array. It should look something like this:

    modules: [
      '@nuxtjs/pwa',
      '@nuxtjs/dotenv',
      '@nacelle/nacelle-nuxt-module',
      '@nuxtjs/sitemap',
      '@pushowl/nacelle-nuxt-module'
    ],
    

    Next you will have to add the PushOwl configuration options to nuxt.config.js in the nacelle config object. You will need your Shopify store's subdomain.

    nacelle: {
      spaceID: process.env.NACELLE_SPACE_ID,
      token: process.env.NACELLE_GRAPHQL_TOKEN,
      gaID: process.env.NACELLE_GA_ID,
      fbID: process.env.NACELLE_FB_ID,
      pushowl: {
        subdomain: 'XXXX'
      }
    },
    

    3. Copy service worker file into the app

    You need to copy a service worker file from this module's directory (node_modules/@pushowl/nacelle-nuxt-module/lib/templates/service-worker.js) into your app's static dir such that it is available on the path /static/pushowl/service-worker.js.

    You can run the following set of commands from your root directory to copy the service worker file:

    mkdir -p static/pushowl
    cp node_modules/@pushowl/nacelle-nuxt-module/lib/templates/service-worker.js static/pushowl/
    

    4. Initialize PushOwl

    In default.vue, inside the created function, add the following code to initialize PushOwl:

    created() {
      // Existing code ...
    
      // Initialize PushOwl
      if (typeof window !== "undefined") {
        window.pushowl.init({
          subdomain: "kushagra-store"
        });
      }
    },
    

    Now you are all set to use the API functions and trigger the prompts to ask for push notification permission. Note: The SDK itself doesn't trigger any prompt. It's upto you to trigger it whenever you want.

    5. Abandoned Cart Recovery automation (Optional, if enabled)

    Abandoned Cart, if available on your PushOwl plan, works out of the box through this module for most parts. There is just configuration change required on PushOwl Side. Abandoned Cart push notifications open the cart page of your store. For stores with custom frontends, it becomes difficult to figure out the cart URL automatically. Hence, you need to explicitly enter your cart URL from PushOwl dashboard.

    If you have implemented a custom cart page in your store, use that page's URL as cart URL. Otherwise, you can use the following URL as your cart page: https://<website_domain>?showCart=true

    Here is how to update your cart URL in PushOwl dashboard:

    1. Login to PushOwl dashboard -> https://dashboard.pushowl.com/shopify-login
    2. Go to Abandoned Cart settings though Automations > Abandoned Carts or directly visit https://dashboard.pushowl.com/automation/abandoned-cart-recovery
    3. Edit each of the active notification you see and change all instances of cart URLs in them to your actual cart URL (as discussed above). changing cart urls
    4. Save and you are done!

    6. Browse Abandonment, Price Drop, Back in Stock automations (Optional, if enabled)

    Browse abandonment, Price drop, Back in stock, if available on your PushOwl plan, work out of the box through this module. There are two requirements though:

    1. You should be using version 2.x or above of the Nacelle Nuxt Starter for your store.
    2. Your product URLs defined in the Shopify admin should still work (as it is or with redirection). This is because on clicking Browse Abandonment notifications, users are taken to the product URL defined in the Shopify admin.

    ℹ️ IMPORTANT INFORMATION: In case you are still using your default Shopify store frontend for checkout purposes, you need to check the store URL registered on PushOwl. The store URL is what these automations use to build a product URL to send in the push notifications. You can check your registered store URL by visiting - dashboard.pushowl.com/settings. Like so:

    store url

    If the store URL you see above is not the right store URL where products are available, then the automation settings need to be adjusted for that. Currently, this can only be adjusted through us. So if this is the case, please let us know on support@pushowl.com and we'll adjust the URLs.

    API

    • There is a global object available called pushowl which can be accessed through window.pushowl.
    • The API works by triggering appropriate "actions". An action can be triggered like so: window.pushowl.trigger(<action_name>, <options>). Eg. An action named "X" can be triggered through window.pushowl.trigger("X")
    • Widgets for price drop and back in stock are displayed automatically

    Available API actions:

    showWidget

    Options available

    • type: Type of widget to show. browserPrompt|customPrompt

    For customPrompt, following extra options are available:

    • title: Title for the prompt
    • description: Description for the prompt
    • yesButton: "yes" button refers to the positive/allow button in the prompt. This is an object with label property.
    • noButton: "no" button refers to the negative/deny button in the prompt. This is an object with label property.
    • logo (optional): URL of the image to show as logo. Defaults to a bell if nothing is passed.
    • position (optional): Needs to be specified for desktop and mobile separately like so position: {default: 'top-left', mobile: 'top'}. Available options for desktop(default): top-left, top-center, top-right, bottom-left, bottom-center, bottom-right. Available options for mobile: top, bottom. Default is { default: 'top-center', mobile: 'top' }
    • overlay (optional): Controls the overlay that shows with the native permission prompt. Only accepts one property for now: enabled: true|false. Eg. overlay: { enabled: false }
    • theme (optional): Allows changing various colors in the prompt. Currently supported properties are: theme: { yesButtonBgColor: '#f00', yesButtonColor: '#fff' }

    syncCart

    Cart syncing is auto-enabled in this module. This API gets called automatically whenever the cart is updated.

    Recipes

    To show a native browser prompt

    
    window.pushowl.trigger('getCurrentPermission').then(permission => {
      if (permission === "default") {
        window.pushowl
          .trigger("showWidget", {
            type: "browserPrompt",
          })
          .then((res) => {
            // Do anything you want to after showing prompt
          });
      }
    });
    

    Note, always check the current permission value before showing the prompt. default value means user has neither allowed nor denied.

    To show a Custom Prompt

    
    window.pushowl.trigger('getCurrentPermission').then(permission => {
      if (permission === "default") {
        window.pushowl
          .trigger("showWidget", {
            type: "customPrompt",
            title: "Lets get you offers!",
            description: "Subscribe to get amazing offers",
            yesButton: { label: "Subscribe" },
            noButton: { label: "Later" },
            logo: "image url here",
            position: { default: "top-left", mobile: "bottom" },
            overlay: { enabled: false },
          })
          .then((res) => {
            // Do anything you want to after showing prompt
          });
      }
    });
    

    Typically you can run the above code inside the router onReady event hook, so that the prompt shows when the app is ready. Refer next recipe.

    Show a custom prompt when app router is ready

    You can put the following code in a new/exisiting plugin in your Nuxt app:

    ctx.app.router.onReady(() => {
      window.pushowl.trigger('getCurrentPermission').then(permission => {
        if (permission === "default") {
          window.pushowl
            .trigger("showWidget", {
              type: "customPrompt",
              title: "Lets get you offers!",
              description: "Subscribe to get amazing offers",
              yesButton: { label: "Subscribe" },
              noButton: { label: "Later" },
              position: { default: "top-left", mobile: "bottom" },
              overlay: { enabled: false },
            })
            .then((res) => {
              console.log("PushOwl prompt shown", res);
            });
        }
      });
    });
    
    

    Show prompt with a timeout/delay

    Let's say you want the native browser prompt 5 seconds after the app is open:

    setTimeout(() => {
      window.pushowl.trigger('getCurrentPermission').then(permission => {
        if (permission === "default") {
          window.pushowl
            .trigger("showWidget", {
              type: "browserPrompt",
            })
        }
      });
    }, 5000)
