Development Tools

  • TypeScript
  • React
  • GitHub
  • Storybook
  • Node.js (v14)

Recommended Development Workflow

  1. Using our GitHub integration, we recommend developing your integration locally for quick iteration
  2. Create a new section for your integration, link that section to a page, and you can validate if the integration is working directly in our Experience Manager.
  3. Once you have the integration functioning as expected through with Sections and Components, then convert it to an npm package.
    a. Move your hooks to a separate folder and (separate into different files, if needed)
    b. Add TypeScript typings
    c. Add tests (using Jest and React Testing Library)
    d. Add Storybook stories demonstrating how the integration works
    e. Add some documentation (in the README.md)
  4. Part of this npm will include some Type Script rules that run automated testing. This is to ensure your integration meets certain requirements. If you are having trouble with an error message, reach out to your contact at Shogun and we can work together to identify severity and resolution.
  5. To install the npm integration on your store, go here
