Developers on Gitter


Developed following the API-first approach, Shopware 6 is based on a completely new technological foundation that uses Symfony as the standard framework and Vue.js for the administration. Bootstrap 4 is used in combination with the template engine Twig for the new storefront, making it even easier to work with Shopware while reducing dependency on specialised knowledge.


Join the livestream: Our Developer Evangelist Niklas Dzösch and invited guests from the community regularly discuss current trends, insights, new technologies and Shopware-related topics in a monthly livestream. Take a look at the previous livestreams now.
