  • Hot-reload CSS and Liquid section changes as you’re developing
  • Initialize a new theme project using our reference theme, Dawn, as a starting point
  • Push and publish themes from the command line
  • Lint your theme’s code using Theme Check
  • Populate test data for your theme, including products, customers, and draft orders
