Information about the script field parameters; see the Passing variables to scripts section below. Please note: In order for this description to be displayed in the Services tab of the Developer Tools, the script description must be defined as well.
When calling a script (or multiple scripts) via the script.turn_on service the calling script does not wait. It starts the scripts, in the order listed, and continues as soon as the last script is started.Any errors that occur in the called scripts that cause them to abort will not affect the calling script.
You can see logs for actions that your scripts have taken by clicking Script history, then log statements next to any script. You can see when each script ran and what the status was. A more detailed log is available by clicking Changes.
You can use scripts to create discounts that are applied to a cart based on the items in that cart as well as other cart properties. You can also use scripts to customize the shipping and payment options that are available to your customers.
You write scripts using the Shopify Scripts API, which uses a limited version of the Ruby programming language. You can write, edit, manage, and publish scripts using the Script Editor app. The Script Editor app provides templates to help you write scripts and a debugger to help you test them.
The Script Editor app includes templates of common scripts. When you create a script, you can choose a template and edit it for the needs of your store. The following list contains examples of the templates that you can customize:
Content scripts are files that run in the context of web pages. By using the standard Document Object Model (DOM), they are able to read details of the web pages the browser visits, make changes to them, and pass information to their parent extension.
Not only does each extension run in its own isolated world, but content scripts and the web page do too. This means that none of these (web page, content scripts, and any running extensions) can access the context and variables of the others.
Introduced in Chrome 96, dynamic declarations are similar to static declarations, but the content script object is registered with Chrome using methods in the chrome.scripting namespace rather than in manifest.json. In addition to registering content scripts, the Scripting API also allows extension developers to:
To inject a content script programmatically, your extension needs host permissions for the page it's trying to inject scripts into. Host permissions can either be granted by requesting them as part of your extension's manifest (see host_permissions) or temporarily via activeTab.
Extensions may want to run scripts in frames that are related to a matching frame, but don't themselves match. A common scenario when this is the case is for frames with URLs that were created by a matching frame, but whose URLs don't themselves match the script's specified patterns.
Because this compares the origin of the initiator frame, the initiator frame could be on at any path from that origin. To make this implication clear, Chrome requires any content scripts specified with "match_origin_as_fallback" set to true to also specify a path of *.
Although the execution environments of content scripts and the pages that host them are isolated from each other, they share access to the page's DOM. If the page wishes to communicate with the content script, or with the extension via the content script, it must do so through the shared DOM.
While isolated worlds provide a layer of protection, using content scripts can create vulnerabilities in an extension and the web page. If the content script receives content from a separate website, such as making an XMLHttpRequest, be careful to filter content cross-site scripting attacks before injecting it. Only communicate over HTTPS in order to avoid "man-in-the-middle" attacks.
The Office Scripts API lets you automate common tasks in Excel. Use this reference documentation to learn more about the classes, methods, and other types available for your scripts. All the objects accessible through Office Scripts can be found in the table of contents on the left of the page.
To install custom scripts, place them into the scripts directory and click the Reload custom script button at the bottom in the settings tab. Custom scripts will appear in the lower-left dropdown menu on the txt2img and img2img tabs after being installed. Below are some notable custom scripts created by Web UI users:
The Script component, next/script, allows you to optimally load third-party scripts anywhere in your Next.js application. It is an extension of the HTML element and enables you to choose between multiple loading strategies to fit your use case.
Websites often use third-party scripts to add functionality like analytics, ads, customer support widgets, and consent management. However, this can introduce problems that impact both user and developer experience:
The Script component solves these problems by providing a declarative API for loading third-party scripts. It provides a set of built-in loading strategies that can be used to optimize the loading sequence of scripts with support for streaming. Each of the strategies provided by the Script component uses the best possible combination of React and Web APIs to ensure that scripts are loaded with minimal impact to page performance.
Note: You should rarely need to load a third-party script for every page of your application. We recommend only including third-party scripts in specific pages in order to minimize any unnecessary impact to performance.
While the two aforementioned initiatives were based on promotional codes and required no automation, Vessi relies on Shopify Scripts in many of its campaigns. For instance, Vessi has scripts running in the background to block discounts from gift cards as well as providing a BOGO discount if the customer buys a shoes-and-laces combination.
Another advantage of consistent script names is language agnosticism. This means the scripts themselves can be written in whichever language is appropriate for the maintainers or the project. It also means the conventions can work for projects of varying languages and frameworks. This ensures an individual contributor can do things like bootstrap or run tests without knowing how to do them for a wide range of project types.
