7. Create individual product pages - Create a Commerce.js store with Svelte

notrab profile image Jamie Barton ・1 min read

Now we've individual pages for categories, it's now time to create the important pages for products.



We can do this by creating a new file with the name [permalink].svelte inside the src/routes/products directory.

The file is called [permalink] because we'll be fetching Commerce.js products by their permalink. You could alternatively use the product id, but the permalink when customized is a bit more friendly.

Inside this file we'll make a call to commerce.products.retrieve() and pass into the first argument the permalink (from params), and then in the 2nd argument, we'll tell it the type is permalink.

Once we've retrieved the product by permalink, we'll export the necessary variables, and return the product name, and formatted price to the page.

<script context="module">
  import commerce from "../../lib/commerce.js";

  export async function preload({ params }) {
    const { permalink } = params;

    const product = await commerce.products.retrieve(permalink, {
      type: "permalink",
    });

    return {
      product,
    };
  }
</script>

<script>
  export let product;
</script>

<h1>{product.name}</h1>

<p>{product.price.formatted_with_symbol}</p>

🎉 Great!

You should see after running npm run dev all of what we've built so far at http://localhost:3000.


We'll next explore using Commerce.js to add products to cart, and checkout.
