You can easily build your own apps and extensions by following our developer documentation
You can easily setup shopware by:
- Download shopware and run it on your server

Shopware 6 uses Symfony as the standard framework, while the administration is completely based on Vue.js. In relying on technological standards, we’ve made it even easier to work with Shopware – while reducing dependency on specialised knowledge. Our goal is to make it as comfortable as possible to get started with Shopware by providing you with various resources, completely free of charge.
We want commerce to take place where people are; independent of place, time and end device. Following to the API-first approach, Shopware 6 provides retailers with the technological foundation to effortlessly build retail strategies across channels and devices.
The chart shows how the Shopware Platform fits into your enterprise. It provides web frontends for management and for commerce through a multitude of sales channels. It comes with a set of user facing interfaces and provides the ability to connect to your own infrastructure and outside services through REST-APIs.
More information can be found in the documentation.
Shopware 6 consists of multiple repositories, two of them are important to you:
shopware/platformis a mono repository
- This is where the shopware core is developed. You need it as dependency in your projects
- This is where you can participate in the development of Shopware through pull requests
- It's split into multiple repositories for production setups, all read-only
shopware/developmentis the development template
- This is where your journey with shopware starts
- Installation see below!
A full installation guide covering different dev environments is available in the docs.
For the impatient reader, here is a tl;dr using docker.
Let's start by cloning the development template:
> git clone email@example.com:shopware/development.git
You now have the application template for the Shopware Platform in the directory
development, we now change into it:
> cd development
Only if you want to work with the Shopware platform code itself, e.g. in order to create a pull request for it, you should clone the platform code manually. Before doing so, empty the existing platform directory.
> rm platform/.gitkeep > git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:shopware/platform > git checkout @ platform/.gitkeep
Build and start the containers:
> ./psh.phar docker:start
Access the application container:
> ./psh.phar docker:ssh
Execute the installer:
> ./psh.phar install
This may take a while since many caches need to be generated on first execution, but only on first execution.
To be sure that the installation succeeded, just open the following URL in your favorite browser: localhost:8000
Shopware 6 will continue to evolve together with you and your feedback. This is our number one priority!
With openness as one of our core values, we will always provide you with a transparent overview of our product development.
The Shopware Roadmap shows you what we are working on, what we want to tackle next, and what visions we have for the future.
In today’s information-based world, you cannot thrive in closed systems. Black boxes and vendor lock-in models hurt innovation – and belong in the dark ages of ecommerce.
The future of IT is all about collaboration. At Shopware, we believe that the best ecommerce solution can only be developed in constant exchange with the people that use it every day. This is why we made a clear promise to the open source approach and embrace everyone willing to participate. We consider our community to be our greatest strength; not our competitor, like many companies tend to do.
We believe that our open source edition is our strongest asset and that we need, now more than ever, to invest in our ecosystem of partners and developers. So that we can work together to collaborate across backgrounds, experiences and ideas and mutually benefit from the software that results.
