Gatsby Starter: Ecommerce and Flotiq

This is a Gatsby starter project for ecommerce using Snipcart. It's configured to pull products data from Flotiq and can be easily deployed to your cloud hosting - Heroku, Netlify, Gatsby Cloud, etc.

Live Demo: https://flotiq-starter-products.herokuapp.com


Quick start

  1. Start project from template using Gatsby CLI

    gatsby new gatsby-starter-products https://github.com/flotiq/gatsby-starter-products.git
  2. Setup "Products" Content Type in Flotiq

Create your Flotiq.com account.

Next, create the Product Content Type:

Create content type definition using Flotiq

Note: You can also create Product using Flotiq REST API:

curl 'https://api.flotiq.com/api/v1/internal/contenttype' -H 'X-AUTH-TOKEN: __YOUR_API_KEY__' -H 'Content-Type: application/json;chars--data-binary ' -X POST --data-binary '{"name":"product","label":"Product","schemaDefinition":{"type":"object","allOf":[{"$ref":"#/components/schemas/AbstractContentTypeSchemaDefinition"},{"type":"object","properties":{"name":{"type":"string","minLength":1},"slug":{"type":"string","minLength":1},"price":{"type":"number","minLength":1},"description":{"type":"string"},"productImage":{"type":"array","items":{"$ref":"#/components/schemas/DataSource"},"minItems":0},"productGallery":{"type":"array","items":{"$ref":"#/components/schemas/DataSource"},"minItems":0}}}],"required":["name","slug","price"],"additionalProperties":false},"metaDefinition":{"propertiesConfig":{"name":{"inputType":"text","unique":true,"isTitlePart":true},"slug":{"inputType":"text","unique":true},"price":{"inputType":"number","unique":false},"description":{"inputType":"richtext","unique":false},"productImage":{"inputType":"datasource","unique":false,"validation":{"relationContenttype":"_media"}},"productGallery":{"inputType":"datasource","unique":false,"validation":{"relationMultiple":true,"relationContenttype":"_media"}}},"order":["name","slug","price","description","productImage","productGallery"]}}' --compressed
  1. Configure application

The last step is to configure our application to know from where it has to fetch the data. You can also setup your Snipcart API_KEY to enable store functionality.

You need to create a file called .env inside the root of the directory, with the following structure:

  1. Start developing.

    Navigate into your new site’s directory and start it up.

    cd gatsby-starter-products
    npm install
    gatsby develop

    If you wish to import example products to your account, before running gatsby develop run:

    node ./.flotiq/importExample.js

    It will add 10 images and 4 products to your Flotiq account.

    Note: You need to put your Read and write API key in .env for import to work. You don't need Product content type in your account. If you already have products with ids product-1, product-2, product-3, and product-4 they will be overwritten.

  2. Open the source code and start editing!

    Your site is now running at http://localhost:8000!

    Note: You'll also see a second link: http://localhost:8000/___graphql. This is a tool you can use to experiment with querying your data. Learn more about using this tool in the Gatsby tutorial.

    Open a project directory in your code editor of choice and edit src/pages/index.js. Save your changes and the browser will update in real time!

  3. Manage your products using Flotiq editor
