- Making requests to the REST API
- Making requests to the GraphQL API
- Register/process webhooks
Once your app has access to the Admin API, you can also access the Shopify Storefront API to run GraphQL queries using the
unauthenticated_* access scopes.
This library can be used in any application that has a Node.js backend, since it doesn't rely on any specific framework—you can include it alongside your preferred stack and only use the features that you need to build your app.
To follow these usage guides, you will need to:
- have a basic understanding of Node.js
- have a Shopify Partner account and development store
- OR have a test store where you can create a private app
- have a private or custom app already set up in your test store or partner account
- use ngrok, in order to create a secure tunnel to your app running on your localhost
- add the
ngrokURL and the appropriate redirect for your OAuth callback route to your app settings
- have yarn installed
You can follow our getting started guide, which will provide instructions on how to create an app using plain Node.js code, or the Express framework. Both examples are written in Typescript.
