Only the best in frontend

Web designers and (theme) developers can rely on us to use only the best in the frontend, with the absolute highest demand. You will feel at home immediately: The Smartstore frontend is based on Bootstrap and can be easily redesigned with the Razor template engine. Thanks to Sass, our CSS code is highly granular, both structurally and at the file level.

  • Bootstrap 4
  • Sass
  • HTML5
  • CSS3
  • Liquid
  • Vue.js
@model IList<ProductVariantModel>

@using SmartStore.Web.Models.Catalog;

var attributes = Model.Where(x => x.ShouldBeRendered()).ToList();

<div class="pd-variants">
@foreach (var attribute in attributes)
<div class="pd-variant-item">
@{ Html.RenderPartial("ChoiceTemplates/Choice", attribute); }
.shopbar-light {
.shopbar-button {
color: $shopbar-color !important;
background-color: $shopbar-bg;

&:hover {
border-color: rgba(#000, 0.12);

&:active, .open &, .show & {
border-color: var(--primary);
background-color: var(--light);
box-shadow: inset 0 3px 5px rgba($darkblue, 0.125);
(function (factory) {
'use strict';
if (typeof define === 'function' && define.amd) {
], factory);
} else {
Theming made easy

Theme Engine

With multi-level inheritance

The Theme Engine, which we have designed specifically for Smartstore and have been enhancing for years, makes even fundamental theme adjustments a breeze. Themes, templates, assets (scripts, stylesheets and images) and even Sass variables are inheritable to any level. So you always change what you WANT to change and don't have to reinvent the wheel.

Message templates

Highly customizable message templates, with master templates and Intellisense thanks to Liquid Engine

Modular software

Open plug-in architecture

The modular architecture of the Smartstore platform solves the risks associated with a monolithic approach. Change, replacement, expansion is possible without touching the program core thanks to open interfaces. Your code will be preserved in future updates and can be migrated with very little effort in extreme cases - e.g. in the case of breaking changes in the core.
