Connecting Start.gg API with Wix Velo: A Step-by-Step Guide



Are you looking to integrate an online gaming platform with your Wix Velo website? With the Start.gg API, you can easily display game information, player profiles, statistics, and more on your website. In this guide, we will walk you through the steps of connecting Start.gg API with Wix Velo, complete with code snippets.


Step 1: Create a Start.gg Account and Get Your API Key


The first step is to create an account on Start.gg. Once you have created an account, navigate to the "API Keys" section and create a new API key. Copy the key as you will need it later in the tutorial.


Step 2: Create a New Velo Application


Log in to your Wix account and navigate to the Velo section. Click on "Create new application" and select "External API" as the type of application.


Step 3: Add External API to Your Application


After creating your Velo application, add the external API to it by clicking on the "Add External API" button. Enter the API endpoint URL provided by Start.gg and select the authentication type. For Starg.gg, we will use the "API Key" type.


Code:


import {fetch} from 'wix-fetch';


export async function getGameData() {

const apiKey = 'your-api-key-here';

const apiUrl = 'https://api.start.gg/v1/games';


const response = await fetch(apiUrl, {

headers: {

'Authorization': apiKey

}

});

if(response.ok) {

const json = await response.json();

return json;

} else {

const status = response.status;

const statusText = response.statusText;

console.error(`Error ${status}: ${statusText}`);

return null;

}

}


Step 4: Configure Your Pages


Now that you have successfully connected your Velo application with the Start.gg API, it's time to configure your pages to display game data. To do this, you can use Velo components such as repeaters and tables to display data retrieved from the API.


For example, to display a list of games, you can use the following code snippet:


Code


import {getGameData} from 'backend/getGameData';


$w.onReady(async function () {

const data = await getGameData();

$w('#gamesRepeater').data = data;

});


Step 5: Test Your Integration


After configuring your pages, it's important to test your integration to ensure that everything is working correctly. Make sure to check for any errors or issues and troubleshoot as necessary.
