This guide will walk you through the process of installing and configuring WooGraphQL for your WordPress website.
- A WordPress website with WooCommerce installed and activated.
- WPGraphQL plugin installed and activated.
Visit the official WooGraphQL website (https://woographql.com/) and download the latest release as a zip file.
a. Log in to your WordPress admin dashboard. b. Navigate to 'Plugins > Add New'. c. Click on the 'Upload Plugin' button at the top of the page. d. Click 'Choose File' and select the downloaded zip file. e. Click 'Install Now' and wait for the installation process to complete.
After the installation is complete, click on the 'Activate Plugin' button to enable WooGraphQL on your website.
Visit the WPGraphQL endpoint (usually 'yourwebsite.com/graphql') and ensure that the WooCommerce types and fields have been added to the schema. You can use a GraphQL client like GraphiQL or GraphQL Playground for this purpose.
If you want to customize any WooCommerce settings related to the GraphQL schema, you can do so by visiting 'WooCommerce > Settings' in your WordPress admin dashboard. Or customize you WooGraphQL responses by visiting 'WPGraphQL > Settings' from the dashboard and selecting the 'WooGraphQL' tab. Learn about the WooGraphQL settings in-depth here.
Familiarize yourself with the available queries, mutations, and types by visiting the official WooGraphQL schema page (https://woographql.com/schema).
You can now use WooGraphQL to build powerful applications that interact with your WooCommerce store data via GraphQL queries and mutations. This enables you to create custom storefronts, mobile apps, or third-party integrations with ease.
