App distribution decoupled from app creation, new Partner Dashboard navigation


What a relief - app distribution is now decoupled from the app creation flow in the Partner Dashboard! This means you no longer have to select a public or custom app type before you start coding.

We’ve also improved the navigation within the Partner Dashboard and added a Distribution page, where can manage your Shopify App Store listing or generate your merchant install link. Also, if you’re building your app using Shopify CLI, you’ll be able to copy and paste the commands you need to get started right from the dashboard.
