Build Status Circle CI Code Climate codebeat Slack Status

Spree is a complete open source e-commerce solution built with Ruby on Rails. It was originally developed by Sean Schofield and is now maintained by developers from Spark Solutions and Vinsol. We're open to contributions and accepting new Core Team members.

Spree consists of several different gems, each of which are maintained in a single repository and documented in a single set of online documentation.

  • spree_api (RESTful API)
  • spree_frontend (Customer frontend)
  • spree_backend (Admin panel)
  • spree_cmd (Command-line tools)
  • spree_core (Models & Mailers, the basic components of Spree that it can't run without)
  • spree_sample (Sample data)

Getting Started

Required rails rails (~> 4.2.6)

Add Spree gems to your Gemfile:

gem 'spree', '~> 3.1.0'
gem 'spree_auth_devise', '~> 3.1.0'
gem 'spree_gateway', '~> 3.1.0'

Run bundle install

Use the install generators to set up Spree:

rails g spree:install --user_class=Spree::User
rails g spree:auth:install
rails g spree_gateway:install

Installation options

Alternatively, if you want to use the bleeding edge version of Spree, add this to your Gemfile:

gem 'spree', github: 'spree/spree'
gem 'spree_auth_devise', github: 'spree/spree_auth_devise'
gem 'spree_gateway', github: 'spree/spree_gateway'

Note: The master branch is not guaranteed to ever be in a fully functioning state. It is unwise to use this branch in a production system you care deeply about.

By default, the installation generator (rails g spree:install) will run migrations as well as adding seed and sample data. This can be disabled using

rails g spree:install --migrate=false --sample=false --seed=false

You can always perform any of these steps later by using these commands.

bundle exec rake railties:install:migrations
bundle exec rake db:migrate
bundle exec rake db:seed
bundle exec rake spree_sample:load

Spree Extensions provide additional features not present in the Core system.

Extension Description
spree_i18n I18n translation files for Spree Commerce
spree-multi-domain Multiple Spree stores on different domains - single unified backed for processing orders
spree_multi_currency Provides UI to allow configuring multiple currencies in Spree
spree_braintree_vzero Official Spree Braintree v.zero + PayPal extension
spree_address_book Adds address book for users to Spree
spree_digital A Spree extension to enable downloadable products
spree_social Building block for spree social networking features (provides authentication and account linkage)
spree_related_products Related products extension for Spree
spree_active_shipping Spree integration for Shopify's active_shipping gem
spree_static_content Manage static pages for Spree
spree-product-assembly Adds oportunity to make bundle of products
spree_editor Rich text editor for Spree with Image and File uploading in-place
spree_recently_viewed Recently viewed products in Spree
spree_wishlist Wishlist extension for Spree
spree_sitemap Sitemap Generator for Spree


You may notice that your Spree store runs slowly in development environment. This can be because in development each asset (css and javascript) is loaded separately. You can disable it by adding the following line to config/environments/development.rb.

config.assets.debug = false

Developing Spree

Spree is meant to be run within the context of Rails application and the source code is essentially a collection of gems. You can easily create a sandbox application inside of your cloned source directory for testing purposes.

Clone the Git repo

git clone git://github.com/spree/spree.git
cd spree

Install the gem dependencies

bundle install


Create a sandbox Rails application for testing purposes which automatically perform all necessary database setup

bundle exec rake sandbox

Start the server

cd sandbox
rails server

Running Tests

We use CircleCI to run the tests for Spree.

You can see the build statuses at https://circleci.com/gh/spree/spree.

Each gem contains its own series of tests, and for each directory, you need to do a quick one-time creation of a test application and then you can use it to run the tests. For example, to run the tests for the core project.

cd core
bundle exec rake test_app
bundle exec rspec spec

If you would like to run specs against a particular database you may specify the dummy apps database, which defaults to sqlite3.

DB=postgres bundle exec rake test_app

If you want to run specs for only a single spec file

bundle exec rspec spec/models/spree/state_spec.rb

If you want to run a particular line of spec

bundle exec rspec spec/models/spree/state_spec.rb:7

You can also enable fail fast in order to stop tests at the first failure

FAIL_FAST=true bundle exec rspec spec/models/state_spec.rb

If you want to run the simplecov code coverage report

COVERAGE=true bundle exec rspec spec

If you're working on multiple facets of Spree to test, please ensure that you have a postgres user:

createuser -s -r postgres

And also ensure that you have PhantomJS installed as well:

brew update && brew install phantomjs

To execute all the tests, you may want to run this command at the root of the Spree project to generate test applications and run specs for all the facets:

bash build.sh
