About this template

This app uses the Stripe API to create price objects for users. It includes a Flask web service with an endpoint to create a price object. The backend makes an API call to create the price object using the Stripe API. The app displays the price ID after submission.

Introduction to the Create Price with Stripe API Template

Welcome to the Create Price with Stripe API Template! This template is designed to help you integrate Stripe's pricing functionality into your applications with ease. By using this template, you can create price objects for your products or services directly through a user-friendly web interface. This is particularly useful for builders looking to add e-commerce capabilities to their software without delving into the complexities of Stripe's API.

Clicking Start with this Template

To begin using this template, simply click on the "Start with this Template" button. This will set up the template in your Lazy builder interface, pre-populating the code so you can start customizing and deploying your application right away.

Initial setup: Adding Environment Secrets

Before you can use this template, you'll need to set up an environment secret for the Stripe API key. Here's how to do it:

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

With the environment secret in place, your application will be able to authenticate with Stripe's services.

Test: Pressing the Test Button

Once you have set up your environment secret, press the "Test" button to begin the deployment of your application. The Lazy CLI will handle the deployment process, and you won't need to worry about installing libraries or setting up your environment.

Using the App

After deployment, Lazy will provide you with a dedicated server link to access your application's interface. Here's how to use it:

  • Open the provided server link in your web browser.
  • You will see a form where you can enter the Product ID, Unit Amount, and Currency to create a new price object.
  • Fill in the details and click "Create Price".
  • The app will display the result below the form, indicating whether the price object was created successfully or if there was an error.

This interface allows you to interact with the Stripe API to create price objects without writing any additional code.

Integrating the App

If you wish to integrate this functionality into another service or frontend, you can use the provided endpoint /create_price. Here's a sample request you might make to this endpoint:


POST /create_price HTTP/1.1<br>
Host: [Your Lazy Server Link]<br>
Content-Type: application/json<br>
<br>
{<br>
  "product": "prod_XXXXXXXXXXXXXX",<br>
  "unit_amount": 2000,<br>
  "currency": "usd"<br>
}

And here's a sample response you might receive:


{<br>
  "id": "price_1XXXXXXXXXXXXXX",<br>
  "object": "price",<br>
  "billing_scheme": "per_unit",<br>
  ...<br>
}

Use the server link provided by Lazy to make API calls from your external tools or services. Ensure that you handle the API responses appropriately in your application's code.

By following these steps, you can seamlessly integrate Stripe's pricing functionality into your applications using the Create Price with Stripe API Template on the Lazy platform.
