Our Backlog is now open to the world – Take a big peek

Aug. 29, 2016 Mikko Flagan

Open source is ... well ... open. Open development, open to contributions, and open to the prying eyes of the public. We are taking it one step further by giving everyone access to our Backlog. We are proud of what we do here at Shuup; proud of our progress and proud of how our team works. We want you to see how we work, what we are up to, and what’s coming up next. You can check out our project, backlog, open issues, and guidelines here.

Take a Peek

Opening up our Backlog allows the public to follow our development on everything in the Shuup Universe, in real-time. We have improved, groomed, and streamlined our development, so that everything is visible and clear. Take a peek inside the inner workings of our Shuup team and on our current progress.


The open source community can follow for updates on open issues and find guidelines to contributing to the Shuup code. We rely on you, the people of open source, to help make our platform great. We know the need for Shuup is there, we know the problems it solves, we just need the input of the public to help realize its potential.

“Participating in open source projects and communities is a way to build open standards as actual software, rather than paper documents. It's a way for companies and individuals to collaborate around shared needs on a product that none of them could achieve alone or, in and of itself, does not constitute a key business differentiator. It's a better development model where bug-fixes and new features identified by your customers are done more quickly and with higher quality, yielding increased reliability.

The open source model also enables increased security; because code is in the public view it will be exposed to extreme scrutiny, with problems being found and fixed instead of being kept secret until the wrong person discovers them. And last but not least, it's a way that the little guys can get together, innovate and have a good chance at beating a monopoly.” Open Source Initiative


Contributions can come in any form; it doesn’t have to be code. Ideas and suggestions for improvements or features are greatly appreciated and needed. We take any input, no matter how small, and apply it to making our platform better. Join us in our quest to modernize ecommerce by making it available to the world, for free.
