Trusted. Widespread. Proven.


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.
