Welcome to django-shopkit’s documentation!

Webshops for perfectionists with deadlines

Similar to the way that Django is a web application framework, django-shopkit is a webshop application framework. It is, essentially, a toolkit for building customized webshop applications, for ‘perfectionists with deadlines’.

Project status

The current codebase of django-shopkit is currently used to run at least two shops in a production environment, where it performs just fine. However, there is an apparent lack of documentation, which we hope to fix during the upcoming months while unrolling subsequent webshop implementations.

If you are interested in using django-shopkit for building your own webshop application, please contact us and we’ll see how we can work together in helping you understand shopkit’s internals while laying out a documentation trail in the meanwhile.


Django-shopkit is compatible with Django 1.4 and 1.5.


The only hard dependency of django-shopkit is Django 1.4 or 1.5. When available, django-shopkit will use django-mptt (< v0.6) for nested categories and sorl-thumbnail (< v12) for images.
