    📦 install and configure shopper with simple html

    1. add <script> elements in your html <head>

      <script type="importmap-shim" src=""></script>
      <script defer type="module-shim">
        import "menutown"
        import ""
      <script defer src=""></script>
    2. configure shopper with a <shopper-config> element

      also place this in your html <head>


      the above config is in mock mode, which lets you play around with fake products

      we'll explain how to connect your real store in the next section

    3. place <shopper-cart> element somewhere on your page

      this is all you need


      however, optionally, you may wish instead to place the cart inside a menu system (like in the demo)

      <menu-system initially-hidden sticky>
          <shopper-button slot="button"></shopper-button>

      also, the cart can take a checkout-in-same-window attribute, if you want to avoid a popup during checkout

      <shopper-cart checkout-in-same-window></shopper-cart>
    4. list products for sale

      list all store products with a collection element and the all attribute

      <shopper-collection all></shopper-collection>

      list a single collection. get the link by copying and pasting the url from your shopify admin panel

      <shopper-collection link=""></shopper-collection>

      display a single product for sale

      <shopper-product link=""></shopper-product>

    📡 connect shopper to your real shopify store

    • replace your <shopper-config>
      use the example below, but replace shopify-domain and shopify-storefront-access-token with your own values

    • obtain your shopify-domain and shopify-storefront-access-token

      • login to your shopify store's admin area
      • copy your shopify-domain from your browser address bar's url
      • create a new private app (a connection point for your website)
        1. click on the "apps" section on the left sidebar
        2. click the sneaky "Manage private apps" link
        3. check on the agreements and stuff to enable private apps
        4. click "Create new private app"
        5. enter the app name, and developer email
        6. skip the whole "Admin API" section
        7. enable "Storefront API" and check on all "Read" permissions
        8. save your app
      • copy your app's "Storefront access token" (NOT TO BE CONFUSED with the "API Token") and use this as your shopify-storefront-access-token

    💅 customize shopper's appearance with css

    • shopper looks very plain and ugly by default
      that's because it's designed to be customized.
      shopper only comes with bare-bones layout styles, so it's as easy as possible to customize to match your store
    • shopper's web components render to light-dom
      this allows complete css customization
    • basic css knowledge is required for visual customizations
      the recommended workflow, is to right-click inspect-element anything you want to customize, look at it's element names and class names, and then write some CSS rules on your page.
      you have to be a bit of a nerd to get this done.
      we're open to somebody writing some standard themes so people can avoid this step in the future

    👩‍🔧 under the hood

    • published as an npm package shopper
    • written in typescript
    • es modules
    • universally-compatible web components
    • only makes network requests to shopify, and to to fetch exchange rates
    • saves cart data to localStorage to keep track of your cart between page loads
    • if you want to support some older browsers, you can improve compatibility by adding these scripts above the others
      <script async defer src=""></script>
      <script defer src=""></script>
      <script defer src=""></script>

    ⚠️ known deficiencies, limitations, problems, and priorities

    • shopper was built quickly. we're open to refactors!
    • we should make some example css themes that look good so people don't have to customize the css
    • we should publish an optimized rollup build for end-use (not suitable for consumption from apps with their own build)
