Build Status Code ClimateTest Coverage



Add this line to your Wagon site's Gemfile:

group :misc do
  gem 'shop_invader', path: '<local version of the ShopInvader gem>'

Very important. Use the very last commits of both Wagon and Steam.

And then execute:

$ bundle

Modify the config/site.yml to include Algolia's settings:

    application_id: '<YOUR ALGOLIA APPLICATION ID>'
    api_key: '<YOUR ALGOLIA API KEY>'
    public_role: >
        { "name": "category", "index": "category", "template_handle": "category" },
        { "name": "product", "index": "public_tax_inc", "template_handle": "product" }


  • your customer content type should have a role attribute (possible values: public, pro, ...etc).
  • the template_handle is not required. If blank, the name attribute will be used as the template handle.
  • put the product/category/... templates in the app/views/pages/templates folder.

Locomotive Engine (Rails app)

Add this line to your Rails app's Gemfile:

gem 'shop_invader', path: '<local version of the ShopInvader gem>'

Inside your config/application.rb file, add the following lines.

module MyApp
  class Application < Rails::Application


    # Steam
    initializer 'station.steam', after: 'steam' do |app|
      Locomotive::Steam.configure do |config|



Templatized page

If you request the http://mysite.com/<URL_KEY> page and no Locomotive page matches this url, then the gem will look for Algolia resources based on their url_key and redirect_url_key properties.

  • if Algolia returns a category, a category liquid global variable will be available in the liquid template.
  • if Algolia returns a product, a product liquid global variable will be available in the liquid template.


List all the categories

{% for category in store.category %}
  <h2>{{ category.name }}</h2>
{% endfor %}

List the products and filter them

{% with_scope rating_value.gt: 4.7 %}
  {% for product in store.product %}
    <h2>{{ product.name }}</h2>
  {% endfor %}
{% endwith_scope %}

Paginate a list of products belonging to a category

{% with_scope categories_ids: [category.objectID] %}
  {% paginate store.product by 3 %}
    {% for product in paginate.collection %}
      <h2>{{ product.name }}</h2>
      <img src="{{ product.images.first.medium }}" />
      {{ product.short_description }}
    {% endfor %}
  {% endpaginate %}
{% endwith_scope %}


  • we should review the way to build the "with_scope" filter current syntax in 'categories': {'id': 5} maybe something like 'categories.id': 5 will be more explicit
  • use a pool of connexion for the connecting to Odoo
  • in product.variants put all of the variant included himself
  • review API path (with thibault, maybe we should use invader?)
  • add integration test
  • have 100 % of coverage
