New to the discussion board, and really glad to be on here.
I’m just getting to understand ERPNext on a deeper level, and have been trying to assess how best it might fit within our upcoming project so thought it best to ask directly on here.
We’re looking to build a JAMstack-based, Microservices platform which will include both an installable React PWA and React Native mobile apps.
Currently wondering what the best means of integrating ERPNext into our project - perhaps there is a relatively simple method to integrate via webhooks / REST api, or perhaps it will require some degree of refactoring in order to build such an integration…
In case it helps provide more context, we are mainly building with: MongoDB Realm, Fastify, React, NestJS, and Gatsby. We do however have Python developers within the team, so should be ok working with the Frappe Framework.
Looking forward to learning a bit more with regard to these points, as I certainly believe in the vision of this team and really respect the open source approach taken with this.
Thanks in advance.
- For service account like communication use apikey+apisecret of “service account” user
- no need to touch frappe codebase unless it is Pull request
- webhooks and rest api do most of the job
- for user authorised communication use oauth2 code grant and implicit grant available in frappe
- webhooks don’t fire for queries. They only fire for docevents. E.g. outstanding balance is updated by query, it won’t be broadcasted by webhooks
- poll sync whatever necessary with service account
- 2 way sync means shared mutable state. Don’t go there as a developer
- use RxJS and FRP. It saves lot of memory and effort.
- use docker to get frappe services running for webhook and api development
- use existing whitelisted functions ReST API: List of whitelisted endpoints
