To what extent is a Shopify dev similar to a generalised front-end dev?

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on

Our great sponsors
  • OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels
  • SonarLint - Deliver Cleaner and Safer Code - Right in Your IDE of Choice!
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • slater

    🛠 Shopify development toolkit

    They also have more examples and tutorials in their documentation pages. You should check slater too, it's a complete Shopify development toolkit

  • themekit

    Shopify theme development command line tool.

    You have a TON of freedom on the storefront. The checkout, as mentioned before, is pretty darn limited. However you can "monkeypatch" the checkout flow and make most things happen. As far as Liquid goes, read the docs to suss out the limitations and capabilities. I'd recommend using either Themekit, Motifmate, or standard Liquid package locally (won't include Shopify-focused features but will have templating, basic utils, etc) to have a workflow where you can use source control, have local development, and a smooth deployment process.

  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.
