Ready for Bootstrap V5
In case you are a web developer, chances are you know very well the magnificent Bootstrap framework, what it does, and why it’s the best and most popular web framework in the world, and in case you are from the entrepreneurship world, all that you need to know about it is that it is the engine that powers firetheme.
Our next-generation Shopify theme will feature the next-generation Bootstrap framework, v5. Besides countless improvements in code and performance, one of the most interesting new features we like about Bootstrap v5, which is going to be automatically available in our new Shopify theme is the responsive font sizes. Text will scale much better across multiple devices, especially on smartphones, where you will notice smaller, more performant font sizes.
If you want to dig deeper into Bootstrap v5’s new features, please follow the official blog post.
This new feature for firetheme-v2 may sound easy in theory but requires a ton of work to be successfully implemented within a theme. With this new feature, you will be able to select a default variant for your Shopify store (light or dark) but not only that. Your store can have an option that will allow your customers to instantly switch the color variant. Yes, the same feature on YouTube or macOS. We think your customers will love this new feature (translates to better CVR to you) as shopping in the middle of the night will be fun again.
We have not mentioned this above, as we want this feature to be in its own section, but Bootstrap v5 now fully supports RTL (Right to Left). There are millions of people whose native language is in RTL format and now, building an e-commerce Shopify store that can sky-rock conversion rates in those countries, it’s easier than ever.
You do not have to do anything at all for your Firetheme powered store to be in RTL mode, As soon as a language is detected as RTL, our Shopify theme will automatically adjusted in RTL format.
Improvements in animations.
Based on feedback from our valuable customers, the majority of them just love FireTheme’s animations. They really transform the shopping experience from boring to fun. In fact, we spent hours and hours testing and coding, the hundred-plus available animations on our Shopify theme. In Firetheme v2 we will again continue this journey by providing some new cool animations and by further improving the existing ones.
When it will be released?
Currently, we do not a date yet, but hopefully before summer ends. (We will update this blog post when we have a date)
Last but not least, it is very important to notice that FireTheme v2 is currently under development. You may preview our next-generation Shopify theme by visiting our demo store at https://firetheme-next.myshopify.com. (password: firetheme)
