Popular questions for this item

What is MobileFront?

MobileFront eCommerce App is professionally made cross-platform Ionic template that integrates with the most popular eCommerce platforms with the help of plugins. Currently available plugins are Shopify and Static data. MobileFront is built with battle-tested frameworks and tools such as AngularJS, Cordova, Gulp and Sass.

I have an existing Shopify web store. How will this app connect to it?

MobileFront comes with a NodeJS application that acts as a bridge between the mobile app and your Shopify web store. The bridge connects to your existing Shopify store via REST API provided by Shopify and pulls all the necessary data such as categories, products, images and etc. into the mobile app.

Does it work with anything other than Shopify?

MobileFront works with Shopify and WooCommerce (available as separate plugin). We also actively working on extending this list.

Can I change icons, colors or anything else in this app?

Of course you can! You can change any aspect of the app, because you have the full access to each line of code. Also, MobileFront provides many customization features out-of-box, such as themes, which makes it easy to customize the app without digging through tons of code.

Can I launch this app in browser for testing purposes?

Definitely yes, however some features like the shopping cart work only on physical devices or device emulators. You should always test the app on physical devices before submitting to stores.

Do I need any specific software installed to modify the app and publish it?

Yes, and we’ve already taken care of it for you. MobileFront provides automatic installation scripts for Windows, Mac and Linux, that will install all the required dependencies such as Ionic, Cordova and Node.js. All you have to do is to run a single command to start installation and follow the installation instructions.

I have installed and launched Shopify successfully, but I see “Could not load data” message instead of categories on the home page.

  1. Make sure that your Shopify is not password protected. See these instructions to remove password protection.
  2. Make sure that there’s only one MobileFront public app installed in your Shopify store. This app should have the path set to “proxy”.

I’ve received an error when trying to add a product when running the app in browser.

Adding products to the shopping cart as well as other shopping cart related features are available only on physical devices and device emulators.

I found a bug. Will you fix it for me?

We’ll do our best to solve any issue ASAP. In most cases, you will be provided with workaround or steps to solve the issue even before the new version of MobileFront (which includes a fix) will be released.

I’ve bought the MobileFront and I am really happy with it. What is best way to give thanks?
