App storage data example

The Ecwid API offers simple key-value storage for apps. You can use it to save private user preferences and public storefront settings, or as a database for your app.

This storage allows you to create complex client-side (JavaScript) apps and skip using a database on a server (like MySQL, etc.).

Each data entry is stored as a pair: a key and its value. You can get a specific value right away by checking a corresponding key. It is available for both embeddable and storefront apps.

Using application storage in your app

You can also retrieve public app configuration (user preferences, etc.) saved in the application storage when your app works in storefront. Learn more
