If you haven’t read about Shopify’s new theme development toolkit, Slate, check out the introductory post here. It provides you a starting set of files for developing your own custom Shopify theme along with handy build tools to speed up and optimize your workflow.
But what if you’re not starting from scratch? Whether you’re basing your work off an existing theme or supporting a client’s existing theme, there’s no doubt you’ve wanted to improve your development workflow at some point.
With Slate installed (
npm install -g @shopify/slate), you can run
slate migrate to convert an existing theme into the folder structure compatible with Slate.
