Public Beta

Apps and supporting tools are in Public Beta, if you have questions or run into any issues, don't hesitate to reach out to support@29next.com. More documentation, more examples, and more tools are on the way.

Getting Started with Apps

Apps allow you to extend built-in functionality of the 29 Next platform to solve merchant challenges and create new functionality all wrapped into an easily installed App.

Apps Allow you to:

  • Extend Storefront Themes - use App Snippets with storefront locations to inject HTML/CSS/JS into themes.
  • Extend Core Functionality - use Webhooks to subscribe to events and the Admin API to add new logic and integrations.
