Slate - End of Support (January 2020)

After re-evaluating Slate and its current state, Shopify has decided to officially end support for Slate.


With the launch of our new section theme architecture we're taking a step back to examine our current tooling and how we can deliver the best theming experience to our theme developers.

Slate is not in line with our vision for themes moving forward and it does not solve two of the larger asks our theme developers have made:

  • Local development of a Shopify theme
  • Support for code versioning within themes

I’m a theme developer that is using Slate. What should I do now?

Slate was built upon Theme Kit as an opinionated way to setup up a Shopify theme build. Shopify will continue to actively maintain and support the growth of Theme Kit through the open-source community.

You can continue using Slate the way you have been. While we will not be maintaining it any longer, you can still fork the repo to suit your own needs.

Slate v1.0 is currently in beta. Expect more bugs than a final release. If you are migrating from using the previous version of Slate, please review the new documentation as there are breaking changes. Slate v1.0 has not yet been tested on Windows.

To view the previous version of Slate, visit the 0.x branch.

Slate empowers developers of all skill levels to build quality Shopify themes. Slate guides developers by providing a tested workflow and opinionated development toolkit, while also accommodating more established developers through advanced configuration.
