Listing Products by category



In my application Xcode/Swift4 application I’m trying to list products by just their specific categories that are associated with them in my molten store. F or example a I have two categories Dresses and Tops. My query in the application is as follows:

let query = MoltinQuery(offset: nil, limit: nil, sort: nil, filter: nil, include: [.products])

    Moltin.category.list(withQuery: query) { result in
        switch result {
        case .failure(let error):
        case .success(let categories):
            let filteredCategories = categories.filter { !$0.products.isEmpty }
            self.categories = filteredCategories


extension StoreFrontViewController: UICollectionViewDelegate, UICollectionViewDataSource {
func collectionView(_ collectionView: UICollectionView, numberOfItemsInSection section: Int) -> Int {
return categories.count

func collectionView(_ collectionView: UICollectionView, cellForItemAt indexPath: IndexPath) -> UICollectionViewCell {
    let cell = collectionView.dequeueReusableCell(withReuseIdentifier: "CollectionCell", for: indexPath) as! ProductCollectionCollectionViewCell
    let category = categories[indexPath.item]
    cell.collectionNameLabel.text =
     //if let file = category.files.first {
        //cell.collectionImageView.af_setImage(withURL: file.url)
    return cell

func collectionView(_ collectionView: UICollectionView, didSelectItemAt indexPath: IndexPath) {
    let category = categories[indexPath.item]
    let controller = ProductListViewController()
    controller.category = category
    show(controller, sender: nil)


extension StoreFrontViewController: UICollectionViewDelegateFlowLayout {
func collectionView(_ collectionView: UICollectionView, layout collectionViewLayout: UICollectionViewLayout, sizeForItemAt indexPath: IndexPath) -> CGSize {
return collectionView.frame.size

class ProductCollectionCollectionViewCell: UICollectionViewCell {
let collectionNameLabel: UILabel = {
let l = UILabel()
l.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = false
l.font = UIFont.heuristicaItalic(size: 20)
l.textColor = .darkGray
l.numberOfLines = 0
l.textAlignment = .center
l.backgroundColor = UIColor.init(white: 1.0, alpha: 0.8)
l.layer.cornerRadius = 4
l.layer.masksToBounds = true
return l

let collectionImageView: UIImageView = {
    let i = UIImageView()
    i.translatesAutoresizingMaskIntoConstraints = false
    i.contentMode = .scaleAspectFill
    i.clipsToBounds = true
    return i

override init(frame: CGRect) {
    super.init(frame: frame)
    collectionImageView.leadingAnchor.constraint(equalTo: leadingAnchor).isActive = true
    collectionImageView.trailingAnchor.constraint(equalTo: trailingAnchor).isActive = true
    collectionImageView.topAnchor.constraint(equalTo: topAnchor).isActive = true
    collectionImageView.bottomAnchor.constraint(equalTo: bottomAnchor).isActive = true
    backgroundColor = .white
    collectionNameLabel.centerXAnchor.constraint(equalTo: centerXAnchor).isActive = true
    collectionNameLabel.centerYAnchor.constraint(equalTo: centerYAnchor).isActive = true
    collectionNameLabel.leadingAnchor.constraint(equalTo: leadingAnchor, constant: 20).isActive = true

required init?(coder aDecoder: NSCoder) {
    fatalError("init(coder:) has not been implemented")


When I launch the app and select Tops for example in the Tops view I get not only the Tops but Dress as well. As I stated in my store each of the products is associated with either Tops or Dresses. I should be gettin both.

Is my Query wrong. I just want to get Products by associated with a specific category.

Need Help



can you show me the code for ProductListViewController?

The code above shows you are searching for categories which atleast have one product inside and you list them in a CollectionView. For me everything looks fine here, the question how and where do you create the list of products inside the ProductListViewController? There should be a problem.

Best regards
