All apps are registered in the Developers Center. If you don’t have an account in Mergado, you will be redirected to Accounts where you can create one. A new account is free – please, don’t be discouraged if you are asked to select a billing period, no payment will be required, i.e. the option is for users who decide to use Mergado for product data management in their eshop.
In the Developers Center, you must first confirm that you want to develop new applications for Mergado (if you haven’t done that yet). After this step you should be able to register new apps by clicking on a button with a plus sign (+).
Registering a new app
Before you register a new app, you need to figure out a name, a type of the app and other information:
name– name of the app
type– type of the app, each type is explained in the Basics
color– a color of the app, it helps users with faster navigation, they will see the color in widgets and also in the apps’ navigation bar
trial period– trial period, if you don’t know, we recommend 10 days
oauth2 scopes– list of oauth2 scopes which the app is authorized to use
countries– countries to make the app available in
DB, SSH and OAuth2 credentials
As soon as you finished the registration of a new app, MySQL, SSH and OAuth2 credentials are generated for the app. This credentials are also accessible on the app’s overview page.
Connecting to the DB
You can connect to the DB via Adminer running on our own server.
Accessing app’s repository
On Linux and Mac, a repository can be accessed via SSH by running the following command in terminal:
$ ssh <username>@appcloud.mergado.com
If you are running Windows, you can install PuTTY or any other SSH client for Windows.
For regular development, you will probably want to access the repository via SFTP:
$ sftp <username>@appcloud.mergado.com
You can, of course, use a graphical SFTP client. There is a variety of clients for Linux and Mac, which one you want to use is up to you. On Windows, very popular GUI client is WinSCP or Total Commander with an extension for SFTP support.
