Flow Theme

General Information

Flow is a responsive theme for all OXID eShop editions.


Step 1: Select the appropriate branch

Currently there are 3 main branches for Flow:

  • Branch b-1.0 contains Flow for OXID eShop version 4.10/5.3
  • Branch b-2.x contains Flow for OXID eShop version 6.0.0
  • Branch b-3.x contains Flow for OXID eShop compilation 6.1 and 6.2
  • Branch master contain Flow for OXID eShop master branch latest commits

Step 2: Get the source code

Check out the appropriate branch for your OXID eShop version into the shop's Application/views directory:

cd DOCUMENT_ROOT/Application/views/
git clone -b BRANCH_NAME https://github.com/OXID-eSales/flow_theme.git flow

You should now have a new folder DOCUMENT_ROOT/Application/views/flow.

Step 3: Prepare the database (< version 6.0 only)

In order to install the theme options, import the setup.sql into your database.

Option 1: Console

mysql -u MYSQL_USER -p SHOP_DATABASE < flow/setup.sql

Option 2: Shop Admin: Service -> Tools

If you have a local copy of flow files, go to Service -> Tools in Shop Admin, upload flow/setup.sql and click "start update" button

Step 4: Prepare the out folder

The out folder can be prepared in two possible ways. The first option is to use symbolic links, the second is to copy. Using a symbolic link is strongly recommended, as otherwise you would have do the copying everytime Flow is updated.

Option 1: Symbolic Linking

Link the theme's out directory to the out directory of the shop:

ln -s ../Application/views/flow/out/flow ../../out/flow

Option 2: Copying

Copy theme's out directory to shop:

cp -r flow/out/flow ../../out/flow

You now should be able to do cd ../../out/flow.

Step 5: Activate theme

Log into the admin panel, go to Extensions → Themes → Flow and press the Activate button. Clean the cache and off you go, my friend!


All Flow theme related CSS/Javascript files can be found in theme's build directory. To regenerate the theme's assets, the grunt tasks should be used. Please install grunt and run grunt's default task to regenerate all minimized css and js files:

  1. To use grunt, npm is required. Check nodejs website for installation instructions (https://nodejs.org/en/download/package-manager/). Example of Installation on ubuntu system:

    curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_10.x | sudo -E bash -
    sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
  2. Install grunt globally and update npm. Example:

    sudo npm install -g npm grunt-cli 
  3. Go to "flow" theme's directory and install all related grunt plugins:

    cd DOCUMENT_ROOT/Application/views/flow/
    npm install
  4. Now its possible to regenerate "flow" theme assets by running grunt default task while being in "flow" directory:
