Deprecation warning ⚠️

The Timber theme is no longer being maintained by Shopify. Developers are encouraged to check out Slate - a theme scaffolding and command line tool built for developing Shopify themes.

You can continue to use Timber; however, this repo will not be kept up-to-date with changes in Shopify theme development.

Shopify Timber

Timber is a theme framework for Shopify that helps you get your store up and running quickly. It provides all required theme templates, a starter set of liquid tags, and some basic styles and modules for you to extend on.

Styling and customization is left up to you. Some base styles and helpers are included, but there is no need to remove any code before you start. Simply download and get designing.
