Shopify Themes enable merchants to easily manage the look and feel of their online stores. Developers use Shopify’s open-source Liquid templating language to build and customize themes.
- Shopify is a hosted service, so you’ll need an internet connection in order to upload, preview, and test your theme.
- If you don’t already have one, you’ll need to create a Shopify partner account.
- If you don’t already have one, you’ll need to create a development store to test your theme.
- To build themes using the new online store design experience, you’ll need to activate the new online store design experience developer preview on a development store.
