Manage storefronts

You can use Oxygen to manage different versions of Hydrogen storefronts through the Hydrogen sales channel.

Hydrogen storefront code exists in a GitHub repository. The Hydrogen storefront is created when commits are pushed to the GitHub repository, and deployed to Oxygen, where the storefront code is built into a Hydrogen app.

If the GitHub repository doesn't have the required files and directories for deploying the storefront code to Oxygen, then Shopify creates a new branch called add-oxygen-workflow, and then creates a new pull request in the Git repository. After the new branch and the pull request are created, you're then prompted to approve and merge the pull request, so you can start using the Hydrogen sales channel.
