Colby is going to take you on a deep dive into creating a full featured store for your business.
Colby will take you through the process of moving the app above app over to GraphCMS, a content management system that’s going to give you a content API backed by GraphQL. Once all of that product data is inside GraphCMS, you’ll be able to easily query it with GraphQL.
Once you put all of your data into GraphCMS, you will get to check out the API playground! This playground gives you the ability to explore our data in real-time. Additionally, allows us to actually save queries that we can later query in the future.
You’ll get a sneak peek into how Colby will use Cloudinary to it’s fullest extent! On top of its performant delivery service, you’ll use a lot of other features, including media management, as well as transformations on top of our delivery, which allows us to do a lot of things from simple use cases, like cropping and resizing, to being able to overlay dynamic imagery on top of other images.
Since Colby is using Next.js, you get all of the perks that come with it, such as
to dynamically create all of your static pages, the home page and your product pages.
Once the pages for your products are created, you need to actually let people buy those products. To do that, you’ll use Snipcart, where you’ll drop in a shopping cart that’s going to provide you with an end-to-end checkout flow.
For your payment gateway, you’ll be taking advantage of the very popular Stripe. Stripe is a very popular payment platform that allows us to securely take payments across the web. While they have a lot of great products and APIs for those products, you won’t need to focus on any of that as Snipcart has already taken care of that for us.
