Recharge offers plenty of flexibility out of the box, but in some cases, you might need to add custom functionality to a site that goes beyond basic design changes. The Recharge Developer Documentation, also known as Dev Docs, bridges the knowledge gap between our user Help Center and a technical audience. Below are some example use cases for using the Dev Docs and customizations you can achieve using our guides and tutorials.
Recharge widget customization
In the Dev Docs, you can find guides for complex widget customization beyond Recharge's built-in settings. You'll find guides that show you how to create a custom widget and other advanced customizations. The Advanced widget use cases guide explains how to use Recharge client-side commands to create and inject a widget, or multiple widgets, into your storefront.
Some users may have complex needs for presenting subscription information to customers. The out-of-the-box product page may not fit a user's website branding or users may need to integrate Recharge with an external ecommerce platform that we don't natively support. With the use of the Recharge API and Recharge's Dev Docs, there are a variety of custom solutions to fit your needs.
Understand Recharge's platform
If you're new to Recharge, you can use the Dev Docs to understand how each piece of the platform interacts. See the API Endpoints articles to understand how each API resource can be used on its own to build custom functionality.

I'm not a developer. Should I attempt to follow the guides within the Dev Docs?
The Dev Docs are geared toward highly technical users familiar with writing scripts and building apps to add functionality to their stores. If you are concerned about causing issues with your store, reach out to a professional to help you achieve the functionality you need. See the Recharge Agency Partner Directory to find an agency that is right for you.
