This tutorial shows how to integrate the search application to your own widget.
There is only one main dependence - Shopify feed. It means that you need Shopify store on which will be installed EPICA application. You don't have to use Shopify as API provider, it is just a good way to store your product feed.
After installing the EPICA application you will be automatically on-boarded into EPICA. This means that you can go to our platform and see the necessary credentials.
For main search endpoint (/api/v1/search) you will need the write_key, which you can find in our platform account settings.
There are two ways to manage search app settings:
- Directly through our platform API.
- Via administration panel of Shopify application
At this stage, the integration is already installed and the necessary settings for the application are selected.
For search, we use https://api.epica.ai/api/v1/search URL, which can work in two modes. One of them works fast and another one returns much more information.
- smart product search using history and AI
- search in collections
- suggestion for query
- filtering and pagination
You can also read more about search capabilities in our API.
