Build a Shopping App with Moltin – Ep 5 – Product Details

Build a Shopping App with Moltin
Lesson 5
In this series, I’ll show you guys how to build an ecommerce shopping app leveraging Moltin!

This lesson shows you how to pass the selected product to the detail view controller and then to display the product details!

The demo we’re building will illustrate a simple shopping flow. Product browsing, product selection, adding to cart and checking out.

It’s going to be a little challenging for those who are completely new to iPhone app development so I recommend that you watch my “How To Make An iPhone App With No Programming Experience” series of videos first. That playlist is 17 lessons long but it’ll give you the foundation and explain the terminology and object oriented programming concepts that I’m going to be using in the building of this Shopping App.

That playlist can be found on my site here:

  1. QOTD ⚡Is Moltin something you are still interested in learning and should we update it for Swift 4.2+? Let me know below!? Kick start your own app with my free 7 Day App Action Plan ➡️

  2. Hi chriss
    Have a good Day 
    please i want asking if i design my website through another website (any  e-commerce site creator) and try to make an app to connect it with , please  i  need to use the same step ??

    another question please Moltin website they change their website to version 2 and it is completely different would you make any new videos of moltin version 2  ???

    thanks in advance

  3. Hi Bro please i am using 2017( April) version of xCode and the swift language syntax is quite different. My description is not show. Please how can i fix it?

  4. I've written a long description for one of my products, and it seems to run off the screen. I have set line to 0, but that doesn't seem to fix anything. Is there another solution or option ?? Thanks.

  5. it also works like this without if:
    let productTitle = detail["title"] as? String
    self.detailTitleLabel?.text = productTitle

    but chris version is safer

  6. Just want to drop a thanks once again chris 🙂 great series.

    Really love the you show StackViews – its a amazing tool.

    What would be great to show some people maybe, how to create the interface by "hand" so write the code and work with screen size etc beside using the interface editor 🙂 this was often really useful for me personal.
