Connectors

Connectors allow you to easily pull data from a variety of ecommerce platforms. This guide shows you how to integrate with supported platforms using connectors.

Connectors can be found in the storefront-foundation Github organization. The currently available connectors are:

  • Mock Connector: This is the default connector that comes in the React Storefront starter app and uses dummy data.
  • Magento2 Connector
  • Salesforce Commerce Cloud Connector (currently in development)

Configuring a connector

By default apps created with create-react-storefront use a mock connector which procedurally generates mock data for demos. You can replace this connector by setting the connector setting in next.config.js. For example, to connect to Magento:

// next.config.js

const withReactStorefront = require('react-storefront/plugins/withReactStorefront')

module.exports = withReactStorefront({
  target: 'serverless',
  connector: 'react-storefront-magento2-connector',
})

Environment Variables

Connectors generally use environment variables setting API keys and other configuration parameters. Consult the README for your connector to learn what variables need to be set.

Creating your own connector

For information on how to create your own connector, see the React Storefront Connector API Docs.
