    🧩 Shopify App Template (Node) with TypeScript (v2)

    I spent the extra time converting the generated Shopify App NodeJS Template into a TS project. I used this project as a guide, but there were complications I had to resolve before it was finally working. I'm not sure someone new to Typescript would have worked it out. However, if this is a serious project I would highly recommend learning and using Typescript.

  • shopify-node-express-mongodb-app

    An embedded Shopify app starter template made with Node, Express, React and Vite, with all the required stuff hooked up.

    I maintain a JS based open source repo. Here's the thing, go ahead with TypeScript. Sure setting up the base types and everything else will be a bit of a hassle at first, and getting things to work together could also be an issue, but it's worth it.
