Build Status

Skeleton Theme

Skeleton Theme and Slate v1 are currently in beta! You should expect potentially breaking changes between updates and more bugs than a finalized release. Slate v1.0 has not yet been tested on Windows.

System requirements

You'll want to ensure you have the following already installed on your local machine before getting started with Skeleton theme:

  • Node: The current LTS (long-term support) release. We like to use a Node Version Manager like NVM.

  • NPM 5+ or Yarn: Both of these package managers have ups and downs, choose whichever you prefer. Follow the installation instructions for Yarn or NPM to make sure you're using the latest version.

Getting started

To get started with Skeleton Theme, run the following command in your terminal:

$ yarn create slate-theme my-new-theme shopify/skeleton-theme

For more information on connecting your new project with a Shopify store, see the Slate docs.


For help on setting up the repository locally, building, testing, and contributing please see CONTRIBUTING.md.
