App details

Mechanic

Mechanic

Mechanic is a development and automation platform, for unlocking the full potential of Shopify.

Each business is unique. Apps can fill in the gaps, when Shopify itself falls short.

Mechanic is here for all those situations where an app doesn't exist, when developing an app would be too expensive, or (honestly) when you'd like to replace many of your existing apps with just one.

You're a merchant?

Excellent. :) Our library contains more than 300+ automation tasks that you can plug into your store today. Feel free to experiment – your monthly subscription includes unlimited tasks, which you may run an unlimited number of times.

When you need something new, we've got a helpful community of developers in our Slack workspace, available for help and for hire. And because Mechanic tasks use Liquid, folks with any level of Shopify experience can get started quickly.

You can get started immediately with these tasks, and hundreds more, from our task library:

  • Email customers when tagged
  • Ask for reviews a week after order fulfillment
  • Cancel and close unpaid orders after x hours/days
  • Auto-tag customers when they purchase a matching product
  • Hide out-of-stock products
  • Maintain inventory for a product bundle
  • Accept a maximum number of orders per day
  • Auto-fulfill items that don't require shipping

You're a developer or agency?

Us too. :) We made Mechanic because too many merchant problems required spinning up an entire app. And scaling it. And monitoring it. And keeping the code healthy.

Now, any developer can (a) write some serverless code in Liquid, (b) allow merchants to configure it, using a UI that we automatically generate from your code, and (c) trust us to keep it running.

Developer features:

  • Free Slack workspace to learn, to get help, and to find development opportunities with merchants in our community
  • Rich documentation, hundreds of open-source tasks (everything in our library), and a YouTube channel of task development videos
  • All of standard Liquid, with extensions for building complex objects, and a bunch of useful filters
  • Receiving email, sending transactional email
  • Reading from and writing to the Shopify API, via both REST and GraphQL
  • Webhooks, for receiving data and triggering tasks; proper CORS support allows calling these from online storefronts
  • Sending requests to external HTTP APIs
  • Uploading files to external FTP/SFTP servers
  • Caching data locally, within Mechanic, to be used during future task runs
  • Generating PDFs from HTML
  • Generating ZIP archives of PDF or text (e.g. CSV) files, to be uploaded or emailed

Much has been done; there is much to do.
