Broadcast theme documentation

Broadcast is likely the most feature-rich theme ever built for Shopify. We hope you didn’t notice. It is built to be easy to set up and run for the first time and has rich features you can tap into as your needs become more complex.

These docs are built to guide you along that journey. We hope to develop themes that rarely need documentation, but e-commerce is complex, and some things require explanation. In some cases, these docs are opinionated. The authors of Broadcast have been working in e-commerce for over a decade, building Shopify themes, launching startups, and building large complex sites for international brands. We have opinions about best practices that are based on this experience. We have baked that ethos into Broadcast.

We aim to help you avoid pitfalls and build a site that is maintainable for the long term. In general, we don't document the apparent things. If you see documentation here, it’s probably worth reading — even if you're an expert. From all of us at Invisible, we hope you love it as much as we do.
