About this template

This app is a Stripe API integration that allows users to check their customers subscription status. Users can access the app through a web interface where they can enter their customer email address. The app will then make an API call to Stripe to retrieve the subscription status and display it on the same page. The app requires the user to set the 'STRIPE_API_KEY' in the Env Secrets tab for authentication with the Stripe API.

Introduction to the Check Stripe Subscription Status with API Template

Welcome to the step-by-step guide on how to use the Check Stripe Subscription Status with API template on Lazy. This template allows you to create an application that integrates with Stripe to check the subscription status of customers through a simple web interface. By entering a customer's email address, the app will communicate with Stripe's API to retrieve and display the subscription status. This is particularly useful for businesses that need to manage and monitor their customer's subscriptions efficiently.

Clicking Start with this Template

To begin using this template, click on the "Start with this Template" button in the Lazy builder interface. This will pre-populate the code in the Lazy Builder, so you won't need to copy or paste any code manually.

Initial Setup: Adding Environment Secrets

Before you can test and use the app, you need to set up an environment secret for the Stripe API key. Follow these steps to add the required environment secret:

  • Log in to your Stripe account and navigate to the Developers section.
  • Under the API keys tab, find your secret key. If you don't have one, create a new secret key.
  • Copy the secret key.
  • In the Lazy Builder interface, go to the Environment Secrets tab.
  • Create a new secret with the key as STRIPE_API_KEY and paste your Stripe secret key as the value.

With the environment secret set, the app will be able to authenticate with the Stripe API.

Test: Pressing the Test Button

Once you have set up the environment secret, press the "Test" button in the Lazy builder. This will deploy your app and launch the Lazy CLI. The deployment process is handled entirely by Lazy, so you don't need to worry about setting up your environment or installing libraries.

Using the App

After pressing the "Test" button, Lazy will provide you with a dedicated server link. Use this link to access the web interface of your app. Here's how to use the interface:

  • Open the provided server link in your web browser.
  • You will see a form asking for an email address. Enter the email address of the customer whose subscription status you want to check.
  • Click the "Check Status" button to submit the form.
  • The subscription status will be displayed on the same page under the form.

If there are any errors or if the customer does not have a subscription, the app will display an appropriate message.

Integrating the App

If you wish to integrate this functionality into another service or frontend, you can use the server link provided by Lazy as the endpoint for your API calls. Ensure that you handle user authentication and permissions appropriately when integrating with external systems.

For further customization or integration, refer to the Stripe API documentation: Stripe API Docs.

By following these steps, you should now have a fully functional application that can check a customer's subscription status using Stripe's API, all within the Lazy platform.
