Shopify appears to be the CMS of selection these days. (possibly not in that group however all over the place else round).
Solely factor that bugs me is its customization choices.

Let’s take the fundamental Debut theme for instance : it has a clear structure, but when you don’t need your retailer to appear like each retailer round, it’s important to customise it, and that is a compulsory step. Now, lets say you wish to modify the product pictures frames, merely transfer the search button within the header to the left of the brand (if it is centered), or including description dropdowns in your product pages, then it’s important to dive into the liquid recordsdata and alter the entire structure.

Shopify apps have been created to resolve most of those issues. However once more, customization is restricted, and people are including loads of weight to your web site, generally making a reasonably fundamental theme actually sluggish. Am I the one one which finds the Shopify admin panel soooo sluggish?

I’ve a stable data in frontend improvement. However these liquid recordsdata? Removed from being as clear because the supply of a web site I am going to construct from scratch. Shopify is utilizing flexbox to prepare most parts in its templates, however man, I simply hate how the liquid recordsdata look. Some folks right here will possibly recommendation to spend a while studying how liquid works, however I do not wish to construct Shopify themes. I simply wish to customise a fundamental theme.

It should be a problem with CMS usually, as a result of even when I made the selection to maneuver to WooCommerce, customization would not be as straightforward once more.

Listed below are my inquiries to the Shopify gurus and eCommerce folks right here:

– are you generally combating with the customization choices the completely different CMS supply (WooCommerce, Shopify)?
– have you ever ever thought-about constructing a easy static web site, with search being dealt with by grabbing your merchandise information from a json file, and easily dealing with checkout through the use of the Shopify Purchase Button, or doing a get request pointing to an exterior shopify web site of yours containing the completely different merchandise and its portions?
– what does Shopify or WooCommerce supply that could not be achieved by a static web site? (search/fee/checkout/members are a very powerful ones in my view, realizing that advertising features of the eCommerce scheme can aswell be achieved by exterior instruments (mailing/upsell))

Fairly technical dialogue right here however to know what a few of you guys take into consideration all this.
Thanks upfront on your solutions.
