Compile and Deploy the "Zapier App" on Zapier platform

The Zapier App is a small package in javascript you have to deploy on Zapier so Zapier will be able to speak the language of your Dolibarr application.

Install Node.js

An easy option to get set up with Node.js is to visit [1](https://nodejs.org/en/download/) and download the official installer for your OS. If you're installing with a package manager it's even easier.

After installation, confirm that Node.js is ready to use:

node --version`

Install the Zapier CLI

Next let's install the Zapier CLI tools. The CLI will allow you to build your app, deploy it to the Zapier platform, do local testing, manage users and testers, view remote logs, collaborate with your team, and more:

cd dev/examples/zapier
npm install -g zapier-platform-cli
zapier --version

Run Zapier Login

Let's configure authentication between your dev environment and the Zapier platform. You'll use the email address and password you use to log in to the Zapier application.

zapier login

This command will set up a .zapierrc file in your home directory.

Install the Project

In zapier example directory, run:

cd dev/examples/zapier
npm install

Deploying your App

Let's deploy it! When you're ready to try your code out on the Zapier platform use the push command. Only you will be able to see the app until you invite testers.

zapier register   (the first time, choose name for example "My Dolibarr")
zapier push

After a push, the Application, with the name you defined during the register step, is available when creating a Zap.
