ShopifyQL Application

Projektübersicht

The challenge for the Development Team was to make integration of Quiet Logistics service into Shopify online stores.

Main tasks and functionality:

  • Automated export of all goods from Shopify into QL (while installing the application)
  • Automated export of an order (order information) from Shopify to QL (after placing an order)
  • Updating information about goods number in Shopify from QL (runs as a scheduled task)
  • Updating order status in Shopify from QL (runs as a scheduled task)

Technical description of the project:

  • Back-end: PHP

  • Storage: MySQL

  • Front-end: HTML 5, CSS 3, JavaScript, native web template

  • Data exchange format: between the application and QL — XML, between the application and Shopify — JSON

  • Interaction with QL is implemented with API AWS (Amazon Web Services) – Amazon S3 Рё Amazon SQS

  • Interaction with Shopify is implemented according to REST architecture using OAuth 2.0

  • The application uses the following open source libraries: AWS SDK, Shopify Client SDK, Guzzle, Event Dispatcher (Symfony Component)

Was wurde gemacht

The Development Team implemented the following:

  • The application is built according to MVC-pattern with possibility of extension/adding new functionality under technical possibilities provided by Shopify and QL API

  • The application starts via Shopify admin panel; starting the app outside of Shopify admin panel is unavailable for security reasons

  • In the Shopify admin panel there is a possibility to change settings of QL account and application

  • РЎritical errors handling with correct (visual) display of information, description of the problem and a contact e-mail for users. System information and system path of the applications are not disclosed. Display of script PHP errors are disabled for security reasons

  • Possibility to block application access for a particular store

  • The application saves stores which have installed it, what allows to continue work after deleting/reinstalling of the application. The application does not store user and personal data (passwords, names, emails, etc.)

  • Possibility to publish the application in Shopify App Store, and then to install it from the store free or at a charge (for all users) or to install it privately (available only to application owner)

  • XML data sent to QL preliminarily undergo validation against compliance to XSD

  • After completing tasks, the application automatically clears message queue on Amazon SQS service

  • PHP-script for fast database installation

  • The application automatically activates only after completing of all goods export to QL, as order export is impossible until QL has needed goods

  • Protection mechanism to prevent order/goods/task duplication

  • Automated registration of needed events in a user's store with further checking and re-creation in case of any error on Shopify side

  • Possibility of running scheduled tasks both as separately and all available at once

  • Access to system application files from outside is denied both by programing means and with help of Apache instruments

  • Overall application size in initial state is ~15Mb

  • Application design is coded with HTML and CSS
