Lemme know if this isn’t the right place to post this. So I’ve convinced my boss at work to agree to a fusetools app for a new client project, but before we go ahead with it I wanted to make sure that they were even possible with fuse at this moment.
- Typeahead search
- Dropdowns (if not, I guess it could be a modal selection which I know is possible)
- E-commerce (something like the amazon payments API)
- Is fusetools stable enough to publish an app on the android/IOS app store? It looks like it but just wanted to be 100% sure
We’re looking to build a catalog site where users can use search filters to find items with a search results list and then to be able to view items. In phase two or three we’re wanting to add an e-commerce solution.
EDIT: Thanks for moving!
Hi there! Happy to hear about your plans.
For a client-side implementation I guess a filtered search, like the one described here, could be a good start.
If it’s for a very large online database then you might instead want to just transmit the search-string and top suggested results back’n’forth between the app and the backend.
Should be possible to build some quite easily using Selection.
Check out these examples: https://github.com/fusetools/fuse-samples/tree/master/Samples/Controls/Selection
E-commerce (something like the amazon payments API)
I don’t know the Amazon payments API specifically and I don’t think there’s any existing integration for it but:
- It’s usually quite easy to integrate new services. Either by just using their REST APIs through JS / fetch(), or by integrating their native libs using foreign code
- If you provide some more specifics on the exact features you’re looking for (some APIs might contain a lot of additional features that aren’t all that relevant), we can perhaps work out more details on the time & effort required to support it.
Is fusetools stable enough to publish an app on the android/IOS app store?
Definitely. You’ll find some examples of released apps on Vinkla’s nice wiki: https://github.com/vinkla/awesome-fuse#applications
Thanks a lot man! Excited to get started on it
