    Is there a step-by-step “here’s how you create a shuup store” from nothing?

    I’ve seen this page:

    But it does a bunch of hand-wavy stuff like “begin setting up a Django project using whichever standards you fancy”.

    I’ve seen this:

    But it just uses shuup workbench to hide the details.

    Is there something else?

    Well, the platform is built over Django, and the only way to set up “real” Shuup store is to create a Django project ( The only limitation with Shuup is that for now only Django 1.8, 1.9 and 1.11 are supported. Django 2.0 support will be added once all essential 3rd party packages support it.

    All those documentations in Github is up to date and feel free to point out flaws, and we will update the docs.

    Like the article points out the development process for Shuup is best done through workbench installation, but shouldn’t be used for customer project or actual stores.

    For your Django project Shuup is available through PyPI and you can look for essential settings for your project from workbench settings which should be suitable for a default installation (setting docs you can find read the docs and or from the repository under core, front and admin apps. Also there is management commands to create the necessary objects for your installation once the project setup is done (these you can find from guides).

    What comes for Shuup roadmap you can find it from the Github readme. What is missing there is that we have plan to add a new open source theme, and even some create project template for setting up a simple Django project. These can be expected before the year changes.

    If you are interested in hosted version build by us, please contact
