Introduction

The design of your website or webshop is very important because customers form an opinion based on what they see, how they perceive your brand. This, in turn, influences the customer experience. Attractive designs could even lead to an increase in customer retention. Luckily, Deity ships with powerful visual theming tools, making it easy for you to theme your store!

One of the things that make the Deity Platform unique is its theming capabilities and (visual) theme editor. Deity knows basically two ways for theming: on a code level and in a visual non-code way.

Code-level theming

Within the Deity Frontend Client, you’ll find two theming packages: the Deity Front Kit and the Deity UI Kit.

In the Front Kit, which is made with ReactJS, you will find all functional components which gather, pass, query, and mutate data from the back-end to the front-end. The purpose of this package is to provide functional components that work tightly with the Shop Extension types to ensure the correct data flow.

The Deity UI Kit has the actual smart UI components, which allow for customization of the User Interface (UI) and represent shop elements. Every component has a default theme built-in, providing a consistent and pleasing, out of the box look while allowing the possibility to customize it in every detail.

    The Composable architecture already paid off, we've already made changes to some of the internal microservices and didn’t have to push the release out to any of the frontend components or change anything in the code base. It really builds confidence and solves the problems we had in the past, which is amazing!
