hey guys - I have just deployed a sample up to heroku and its working - no problem. Howerver, I realised I didn't set up an admin user through env variables :( Can I create an admin user?

Do you have access to console . You scroll to check admin credentials

Ah, yes. I could of checked the heroku logs - didn't think of that.
I've deleted and started a new repo now! :-1:

Hey all, I have a simple blog implemented using a simple react templating library. https://github.com/gatsbyjs/gatsby. Is there a simple way to integrate reaction commerce components into my existing site? I've been reading the documentation and I get the impression that I'll have to start fresh with a base reaction commerce site.

You can use the DDP API and write your own UI components, but you’d be in for a lot of work. Ecommerce apps have a lot going on under the hood.
I think you’d find it much easier to use Reaction as a base and build a blog plugin for it
Or you could run two separate apps (blog/reaction) and just manipulate Reaction via API
but that’s still pretty complicated because of how many things you’d need to interact with
User accounts, cart, inventory, etc.
another option is you create two separate sites with the same design and link between them so it feels like one big site. blog.example.com and shop.example.com
That’s probably the easiest out of all of the options.

Thanks. I assumed it would be a bit of work to integrate. I'll mess around with creating two separate sites and see how that goes. If it seems too much of a headache I'll go with creating a blog plugin. Are there any existing plugins that can give me an idea of how to implement a blog plugin?

That happens to be using Blaze for the UI templates, but that could just as easily be React

This should help. I may just start with the plugin. That will probably be the easiest approach.

In the docs it says it is auto generated

docker logs CONTAINERID
then you should see an email and a generated password

hmm. I get the username and password and email verification which redirects to the main page.
there is no admin url.

NVM. sorry for the confusion. I guess you just login through the homepage login form. Coming from Magento you expect a specific url for the admin.

Any good examples of making a static page (that are not in these docs) - about us for example?
