Bodega Cloud

Bodega is a Shopify PWA using Gatsby JS + Netlify CMS.

Edit gatsby-starter-shopify

Bodega Cloud powered by Gatsby, Netlify, & Shopify

This will be a POC Shopify PWA using the Storefront API & GatsbyJS.

High Level Project Goals


Should be as fast but ideally, faster than a normal Shopify experience - especially for slower connection due to service worker.

Highly Customizable Theme and Settings

There should be a number of ways to customize the theme without touching the code such as colors, typography, and settings (show breadcrumbs?, etc.)


Out-of-box, the site should be WCAG 2.0 accessible. This means aria tags where needed, AA color contrast, and keyboard accessible navigation with focus styling. This includes things like the gallery.

Code Complete with regular Shopify themes

Should strive to offer the same features as a normal Shopify theme such as easy homepage section content, all the normal content types. See this list of issues which might prevent code complete.



Copy .env.sample to .env.development and change the items to match your store. Make sure to add all .env keys and values in Netlify


Customer Active

When sending a customer an active email (invite email), the template utilizes a url pattern that does not currently work with Shopify PWA. To simplify setup, change the following items in the Customer account invite email notification template (Settings > Notifications > Customer Account > Customer account invite or

-<td class="button__cell"><a href="{{ customer.account_activation_url }}" class="button__text">Activate your account</a></td>
+{% assign url_parts = customer.account_activation_url  | split: '/' %}
+<td class="button__cell"><a href="{{shop.url}}/account/activate?id={{url_parts[5]}}&token={{url_parts[6]}}" class="button__text">Activate your account</a></td>

Password Reset

Shopify Password Resets urls do not currently work with the Storefront API and are also presented in a sturcture that requires custom Server-Side Routing. To simplify setup, change the following items in the Customer account password reset email notification template (Settings > Notifications > Customer Account > Customer account password reset or

-<td class="button__cell"><a href="{{customer.reset_password_url}}" class="button__text">Reset your password</a></td>
+{% assign url_parts = customer.reset_password_url  | split: '/' %}
+<td class="button__cell"><a href="{{shop.url}}/account/reset?id={{url_parts[5]}}&token={{url_parts[6]}}" class="button__text">Reset your password</a></td>

We're basically splitting the reset password url into URL parameters which will make it MUCH easier for Gatsby to understand.


Setup webhooks with Netlify to auto-deploy after product creation, update, and deletion.

  1. Got to
  2. Scroll down to Build Hooks and click the Add build hook button.
  3. Create a new Build Hook such as Shopify Product Update.
  4. Go to and scroll down to Webhooks. Select Create webhook and for Event select Product update for example.
  5. For the URL, enter the one Netlify gave you in step 3.
  6. You can test the Webhook by clicking the Send test notification link and you should see a new build begin in Netlify.
  7. Repeat steps 1 through 6 for any additional Shopify Events that should trigger a new build.


Deploy to Netlify


  1. Have your Shopify store name (If it's, the store name would be shopifypwa) and access token ready. Enter those as the environment variables after clicking the deploy button above.
  2. Enable Netlify Identity in order to enable the Admin CMS. Go to and click Enable Identity.
