Wish List

Build a basic wish list feature in Shopify themes with AlpineJS

Demo

Steps

  1. Create a Raven to carry the wish list payload

  2. Add "Add to wish list" button/link to product pages

  3. Create addToWishlist JS function and hook it to the button click event.

  4. Create a page to display the wish list items

  5. šŸŽ‰

Code

I used Tailwind CSS to style the wish list and AlpineJS to manage the state of the feature and UI updates.
