Cart REST API for WooCommerce – CoCart Lite

Beschreibung

CoCart: The #1 REST API that handles the frontend of WooCommerce.

CoCart handles the shopping cart in any modern framework of your choosing. No local storing required. Powerful and developer friendly ready to build your headless store, without building an API.

Why should I use CoCart?

Installation

Minimum Requirements

Visit the WooCommerce server requirements documentation for a detailed list of server requirements.

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of CoCart, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.

In the search field type „CoCart“ and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found the plugin you can view details about it such as the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking „Install Now“.

Manual installation

The manual installation method involves downloading the plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favourite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.

Updating

Automatic updates should work like a charm; as always though, ensure you backup your site just in case.

FAQ

Yes! CoCart’s core features are absolutely free. CoCart Pro completes the full cart experience!

How do I start using CoCart?

You will first need WooCommerce v3.6 or higher installed with the REST API enabled. Then install CoCart and follow the documentation. That’s it!

Why should I use CoCart?

The question is why not! WooCommerce’s REST API is only created for controlling the backend of your store. Not the API your needing for your customers who only see the frontend.

If you are wanting to build a headless WooCommerce store then CoCart is your solution.

Who should use CoCart?

CoCart is perfect for store owners and developers. If you want to create an e-commerce app for mobile or a custom frontend shopping experience completely using the REST API, then you need to use CoCart.

Do I need to have coding skills to use CoCart?

As this plugin is built for developers, you will need to have some coding knowledge to use it. Checkout the documentation to get some understanding.

Where can I find documentation for CoCart?

The documentation for CoCart can be found here.

Can I change the layout format/add/change details to the responses?

You certainly can. Filters are available to do just that. Checkout the tweaks plugin to view or maybe use the examples provided. View the documentation for more.

Does it work with any of the official WooCommerce libraries?

Only if you request your customers to be logged in. This is because all the official libraries require authentication which the cart does not require.

Report bugs on the CoCart GitHub repository.

Is CoCart translatable?

Yes! CoCart is deployed with full translation and localization support via the ‘cart-rest-api-for-woocommerce’ text-domain.

Where can I ask for help?

If you get stuck, you can ask for help in the CoCart support forum or join the CoCart Community on Slack where you will find like minded developers who help each other out. If you are in need of priority support, it will be provided by either purchasing CoCart Pro or the 14 day priority support.

I'm using it to create a react-native app with WooCommerce as back-end. This plugin is a life-saver!

Thanks for doing such a great work with this! Works exactly as expected and CoCart seems to have a nice community around it. The founder seems really devoted and that's one of the key things for a plugin like this to live on and get the right updates in the future. We just got ourselfs the lifetime subscription.

Änderungsprotokoll

v2.6.2 – 16th September, 2020

📢 This minor release corrects some of the API error response codes misused. 👍

  • Tweaked: Check for package version of CoCart instead of the version of CoCart Pro so users can install higher versions of the core of CoCart when CoCart Pro is active. This allows users to test pre-releases or newer versions when they become available. 😄
  • Tested: Compatible with WooCommerce v4.5.2

v2.6.1 – 9th September, 2020

  • Enhanced: Plugin upgrade notice on the plugin page.
  • Removed: Unused CSS.

v2.6.0 – 8th September, 2020

  • NEW: Added backwards compatibility for when set_customer_session_cookie() function is called.
  • NEW: Site environment is now checked before plugin activates.
  • NEW: Plugin will not activate if CoCart Pro v1.1.0 or above is installed.
  • Enhanced: Plugin to be better optimized for future releases of WooCommerce and to allow it to be packaged with CoCart Pro so user’s will not require CoCart Lite if Pro is installed.
  • Fixed: Return product data if missing once item is added to cart to prevent undefined index.
  • Improved: uninstall.php file and now will only clear plugin data and remove the database table if COCART_REMOVE_ALL_DATA constant is set to true in user’s wp-config.php. This is to prevent data loss when deleting the plugin from the backend and to ensure only the site owner can perform this action.
  • Improved: Handling of admin menu by moving to it’s own class.
  • Tweaked: Admin notices to not redirect only to the plugins page once notice is dismissed. Will redirect to the current admin page.
  • Dev: Introduced the ability to white label the plugin. Meaning hide CoCart from the backend. (Admin menu, plugin links, plugin notices including WC admin inbox notices and WC system status information). All you have to do is set a constant COCART_WHITE_LABEL to true in user’s wp-config.php file.
  • Dev: New filter cocart_authenticate to override the determined user ID when authenticating. NOTE This will only be active if not already authenticated.
  • Tested: Compatible with WooCommerce v4.5.0
