As a part of documentation related to Spryker Glue REST API, we have also developed a B2C API React Example. It is a React single page application based on a webpack devserver, Typescript, Redux, and Material UI.
The application has been developed for four primary purposes:
- Provide a simple yet fully functional example of Glue REST API usage.
- Illustrate a complete B2C Spryker experience using REST endpoints, starting from selecting the necessary product all the way through to placing an order. The shop also demonstrates the use of the API resources to create such features as the product catalog, search, auto-suggestions, customer registration, cart management, displaying order details etc.
- Allow you to try Glue REST API without any coding.
- Provide sample REST requests that can facilitate custom touchpoint development.
The Demo shop has been built using and demonstrates the use of the endpoints and resources provided by the following APIs:
|Search API||Catalog Search
Getting Suggestions for Auto-Completion and Search
|Category API||Browsing a Category Tree|
|Product API||Retrieving Product Information|
|Product Availability API||Retrieving Product Information|
|Product Price API||Retrieving Product Information|
|Product Tax Sets API||Retrieving Product Information|
|Product Image Sets API||Retrieving Product Information|
|Product Labels API||Accessing Product Labels|
|Login API||Authentication and Authorization|
|Customer API||Managing Customers|
|Cart API||Managing Carts|
|Checkout API||Checking Out Purchases and Getting Checkout Data|
|Order History API||Retrieving Customer's Order History|
|Wishlist API||Managing Wishlists|
|Store API||Retrieving Store Configuration|
Running the Example Application
The app source code can be found in the following GitHub repository: https://github.com/spryker-shop/b2c-api-react-example. You can install it inside Spryker Development Virtual Machine or on a dedicated web server.
For detailed installation steps, see B2C API React Example Installation.
After installing and running the example app, you can try its functionality. Depending on how you installed it, the shop will be available at:
- http://glue.de.b2c-demo-shop.local/react/ - when installed it in the VM;
- http://react.local - when installed on a separate web server.
