Setup Guide

This guide is the beginning of the documentation with the built-in Notes for the database. Will help you gain a better understanding of how the template and Bubble works.

Starting with the Template

Once you have bought or added a block to your account, you will see a dropdown in the New Application popup that lets you pick a template as the basis for the new application.
☝
Note: This can only be done when you create a new app.

After you've selected a block you bought, complete the other fields with the necessary data (i.e: Name of the new app, What kind of application you are building, etc) and press Create a new app.

Tip: A template isn't a theme for your app, but a pre-built set of elements and workflows. You can modify the template as you would modify another app.
Wait for Bubble to load the application with all the data.

After the application has loaded, you'll see the Component library on the right side for New Application. You can close it or follow the assistant steps to adjust different settings.

Congrats: You have successfully created a Bubble app based on your template. Now, you can proceed with the setups.

Payments

Card payments in this template are powered by Stripe, using the default card checkout providing a secure environment for users. To set up your Stripe account, go toΒ https://stripe.com, and create an account.
☝
Note: You will be allowed to access your dashboard once you have successfully verified your email address and activated your account.
This template is using Bubble's Stripe plugin for payments.
Now we'll configure theΒ Stripe dashboard and theΒ Stripe pluginΒ within your editor. Please follow the Stripe payments instruction below to configure.

Tip: Genuine card information cannot be used in test mode. Instead, use test Stripe cards credentials.
☝
Note: Please be sure to add your Stripe API keys also to the Stripe.Js 2 plugin.

API Connector

This template is using some data calls that are configured and require only slight adjustments from the user side.

These calls are:
  • getUsersByConstrain - this call retrieves the list of users to be displayed on the admin page for the test app version.
  • getUsersByConstrainAction - this call retrieves the list of users to be displayed on the admin page for the test app version
    • Image without caption
  • get listing_list - gets and counts the listings number for the admin page.

Note: once you create your own app, on all calls mentioned above, please replace the default template domain with your own:
