Checkout Page

In a typical storefront, there is a page that displays the current content of a cart. The application from this tutorial will be no different. The cart page will be available under the /cart route.

Setting up the cart page

Let's start by creating the cart.tsx file inside the pages with just the visual structure of the cart. It will consist of the navbar, the cart header, and the list of product variants currently in the cart.

// pages/cart.tsx
import React from "react";
import Link from "next/link";

import { Layout } from "@/components";

const styles = {
  header: "flex justify-between",
  title: "text-3xl font-extrabold tracking-tight text-gray-900",
  grid: "grid grid-cols-3 gap-8",
};

const Cart = () => {
  return (
    <Layout>
      <header className={styles.header}>
        <h1 className={styles.title}>Your Cart</h1>
        <div>
          <Link href="/">
            <a className="link">Continue Shopping</a>
          </Link>
        </div>
      </header>

      <div className={styles.grid}>
        <div className="col-span-2">
          <ul role="list" className="divide-y divide-gray-200">
            <li className="py-6">Product 1</li>
            <li className="py-6">Product 2</li>
          </ul>
        </div>
        <div>Cart Summary</div>
      </div>
    </Layout>
  );
};

export default Cart;

Splitting the cart page into components

Before adding new features, let's refactor the cart page a little. We will split the cart component into a few smaller components so that it's easier to manage.

We can identify the following sections to extract as separate components:

  1. The cart header section that consists of the content between the <header>...</header> tags;
  2. The list of products inside the <ul>...</ul> tags;
  3. The cart summary that will eventually contain the cart value, i.e. the products total along with shipping costs, taxes and possible discounts;

As for the cart header, let's put it into components/CartHeader.tsx

// components/CartHeader.tsx
import React from "react";
import Link from "next/link";

const styles = {
  header: "flex justify-between",
  title: "text-3xl font-extrabold tracking-tight text-gray-900",
};

export const CartHeader = () => {
  return (
    <header className={styles.header}>
      <h1 className={styles.title}>Your Cart</h1>
      <div>
        <Link href="/">
          <a className="link">Continue Shopping</a>
        </Link>
      </div>
    </header>
  );
};

For the cart list, let's put it into components/CartList.tsx

// components/CartList.tsx
import React from "react";

export const CartList = () => {
  return (
    <ul role="list" className="divide-y divide-gray-200">
      <li className="py-6">Product 1</li>
      <li className="py-6">Product 2</li>
    </ul>
  );
};

And finally, for the cart summary, let's put it into the components/CartSummary.tsx

// components/CartSummary.tsx
import React from "react";

export const CartSummary = () => {
  return <div>Cart Summary</div>;
};

Let's not forget to export added components from components/index.ts:

// components/index.ts
export { ProductCollection } from './ProductCollection';
export { Layout } from './Layout';
export { ProductElement } from './ProductElement';
export { Pagination } from './Pagination';
export { Navbar } from './Navbar';
export { ProductDetails } from './ProductDetails';
export { VariantSelector } from './VariantSelector';
export { CartHeader } from './CartHeader';
export { CartList } from './CartList';
export { CartSummary } from './CartSummary';

Now, we can put it all together and rewrite the cart page (located in pages/cart.tsx):

// pages/cart.tsx
import React from "react";

import { Layout, CartHeader, CartList, CartSummary } from "@/components";

const styles = {
  grid: "grid grid-cols-3 gap-8",
};

const Cart = () => {
  return (
    <Layout>
      <CartHeader />

      <div className={styles.grid}>
        <div className="col-span-2">
          <CartList />
        </div>
        <div>
          <CartSummary />
        </div>
      </div>
    </Layout>
  );
};

export default Cart;

Open your browser and navigate to /cart. You should see the following page:
