The New Shopify Store Editor 2.0

by

Shopify has been brewing up something really special in their bat cave…. a brand new, super powerful Store Builder.

We have been given first access to a short video, showcasing some of its incredible features!

Check it out here…

We have been wanting to let this cat out of the bag for a while cause we are pretty damn excited about the functionality and flexibility of the new builder.

Its going to mean that for our clients, we can build really beautiful Sections and Blocks and allow them to change them whenever they want. To constantly keep their site looking fresh!
The new version will massively enhance this by extending Liquid (Shopify’s templating language) to include ‘Sections’ and ‘Blocks.’ What are ‘Sections’ and ‘Blocks’ you ask?
They’ll effectively allow Shopify eCommerce merchants to assemble flexible pages built from customizable, re-orderable components.

Some other little things we took away from the builder…

-It’s going to give users a lot of settings, which means endless possibilities for customisation and building a truly unique store.

-There’s going to be quicker load times of big images due to optimised Liquid language

-New Shopify themes to play with!

Existing themes, whilst still working being somewhat backward-compatible, won’t be able to take advantage of the full features in the new Builder. So now would be the perfect time to take a look at your current store and see if it could do with a refresh.

Flux is here to help. We are Shopify Experts and are super excited to get working on a project using this new builder.
