How to use

// In your gatsby-config.js
plugins: [
  /*
   * Gatsby's data processing layer begins with ā€œsourceā€
   * plugins. Here the site sources its data from Shopify.
   */
  {
    resolve: "gatsby-source-shopify",
    options: {
      // The domain name of your Shopify shop. This is required.
      // Example: 'gatsby-source-shopify-test-shop' if your Shopify address is
      // 'gatsby-source-shopify-test-shop.myshopify.com'.
      shopName: "gatsby-source-shopify-test-shop",

      // An API access token to your Shopify shop. This is required.
      // You can generate an access token in the "Manage private apps" section
      // of your shop's Apps settings. In the Storefront API section, be sure
      // to select "Allow this app to access your storefront data using the
      // Storefront API".
      // See: https://help.shopify.com/api/custom-storefronts/storefront-api/getting-started#authentication
      accessToken: "example-wou7evoh0eexuf6chooz2jai2qui9pae4tieph1sei4deiboj",

      // Set verbose to true to display a verbose output on `npm run develop`
      // or `npm run build`. This prints which nodes are being fetched and how
      // much time was required to fetch and process the data.
      // Defaults to true.
      verbose: true,
    },
  },

How to query

You can query nodes created from Shopify using GraphQL like the following:

Note: Learn to use the GraphQL tool and Ctrl+Spacebar at http://localhost:8000/___graphql to discover the types and properties of your GraphQL model.

{
  allShopifyProduct {
    edges {
      node {
        id
        title
        handle
        productType
        vendor
        variants {
          id
          title
          price
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

All Shopify data is pulled using the Shopify Storefront API. Data is made available in the same structure as provided by the API, with a few exceptions noted below.

The following data types are available:

Name Description
Article A blog entry.
Blog Collection of articles.
Comment A comment on a blog entry.
Collection Represents a grouping of products that a shop owner can create to organize them or make their shops easier to browse.
Product Represents an individual item for sale in a Shopify store.
ProductOption Custom product property names.
ProductVariant Represents a different version of a product, such as differing sizes or differing colors.
ProductType Represents a category of products.
ShopPolicy Policy that a merchant has configured for their store, such as their refund or privacy policy.

For each data type listed above, shopify${typeName} and allShopify${typeName} is made available. Nodes that are closely related, such as Article and Comment, are provided as node fields as described below.

Note: The following examples are not a complete reference to the available fields for each node. Utilize Gatsbyā€™s built-in GraphQL tool to discover the types and properties available.

Query articles

The associated blog data is provided on the blog field. Article comments are provided on the comments field.

{
  allShopifyArticle {
    edge {
      node {
        id

        }
        variants {
          id
          availableForSale
          image {
            originalSrc
          }
          price
          selectedOptions {
            name
            value

    edge {
      node {
        id
        name
        values
      }
    }
  }
}

Query product variants

Product variants are provided on the variants field on Product, but they can be queried directly like the following:

{
  allShopifyProductVariant {
    edge {
      node {
        id
        availableForSale
        image {
          originalSrc
        }
        price
        selectedOptions {
          name
          value

    }
  }
}

Query shop policies

Shop policies include the following types:

  • Privacy Policy (privacyPolicy)
  • Refund Policy (refundPolicy)
  • Terms of Service (termsOfService)

The type of policy is provided on the type field. Policies can be queried like the following:

{
  allShopifyShopPolicy {
    edge {
      node {
        body
        title
        type
      }
    }
  }
}

Image processing

To use image processing you need gatsby-transformer-sharp, gatsby-plugin-sharp, and their dependencies gatsby-image and gatsby-source-filesystem in your gatsby-config.js.

You can apply image processing to any image field on a node. Image processing of inline images added to description fields is currently not supported.

To access image processing in your queries, you need to use this pattern, where ...ImageFragment is one of the gatsby-transformer-sharp fragments:

{
  allShopifyProduct {
    edges {
      node {
        id
        images {
          localFile {
            childImageSharp {
              ...ImageFragment
            }
          }
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

Full example:

{
  allShopifyProduct {
    edges {
      node {
        id
        images {
          localFile {
            childImageSharp {
              resolutions(width: 500, height: 300) {
                ...GatsbyImageSharpResolutions_withWebp
              }
            }
          }
        }
      }
    }
  }
}

To learn more about image processing, check the documentation of gatsby-plugin-sharp.

Siteā€™s gatsby-node.js example

const path = require("path")

exports.createPages = async ({ graphql, boundActionCreators }) => {
  const { createPage } = boundActionCreators

  const pages = await graphql(`
    {
      allShopifyProduct {
        edges {
          node {
            id
            handle
          }
        }
      }
    }
  `)

  pages.data.allShopifyProduct.edges.forEach(edge => {
    createPage({
      path: `/${edge.node.handle}`,
      component: path.resolve("./src/templates/product.js"),
      context: {
        id: edge.node.id,
      },
    })
  })
}

A note on customer information

Not all Shopify nodes have been implemented as they are not necessary for the static portion of a Gatsby-generated website. This includes any node that contains sensitive customer-specific information, such as Order and Payment.

If you are in need of this data (e.g. building a private, internal website), please open an issue. Until then, the nodes will not be implemented to lessen the chances of someone accidentally making private information publicly available.
