Spree Commerce

Gem Version Circle CI Code Climate Test Coverage Slack Status

Spree is a complete open source e-commerce solution built with Ruby on Rails. It was started by Sean Schofield and is now developed by Spark Solutions. We’re open to contributions.

Spree consists of several different gems (modules), each of which are maintained in a single repository and documented in a single set of online documentation.

  • spree_api (REST API v2 with JavaScript / TypeScript SDK and REST API v1)
  • spree_graphql (GraphQL API - coming soon)
  • spree_frontend (mobile-first, blazing fast and customizable storefront)
  • spree_backend (feature rich Admin Panel)
  • spree_cmd (command-line tools for developers)
  • spree_core (models, services & mailers, the basic components of Spree)
  • spree_sample (sample data for demo purposes)


Go to: https://demo.spreecommerce.org/ Explore demo features: https://spreecommerce.org/spree-commerce-demo-explainer/

Or fire up your own demo on Heroku:


Admin panel credentials for your own Heroku demo:

  • login: spree@example.com
  • password: spree123


Create new Rails app (optional)

If you’re starting a new application from scrach run:

rails new my_store
cd my_store

You can add Spree to your existing Rails application as well.

Add Spree gems to your Gemfile

Rails 6.0

gem 'spree', '~> 4.1'
gem 'spree_auth_devise', '~> 4.2'
gem 'spree_gateway', '~> 3.9'

Rails 5.2

gem 'spree', '~> 3.7.0'
gem 'spree_auth_devise', '~> 3.5'
gem 'spree_gateway', '~> 3.4'

To see what rails version are you using run this command:

rails -v

Older rails versions are also supported: Rails 5.1, Rails 5.0, Rails 4.2

Install gems

bundle install

Note: if you run into Bundler could not find compatible versions for gem "sprockets": error message, please run

bundle update

Use the install generators to set up Spree

bundle exec rails g spree:install --user_class=Spree::User
bundle exec rails g spree:auth:install
bundle exec rails g spree_gateway:install

Installation options

By default, the installation generator (rails g spree:install) will run migrations as well as adding seed and sample data and will copy storefront data for easy customization (if spree_frontend available). This can be disabled using

rails g spree:install --migrate=false --sample=false --seed=false --copy_storefront=false

You can always perform any of these steps later by using these commands.

bundle exec rake railties:install:migrations
bundle exec rails db:migrate
bundle exec rails db:seed
bundle exec rake spree_sample:load
bundle exec rails g spree:frontend:copy_storefront

Headless installation

To use Spree in API-only mode you need to replace spree with spree_api in your project Gemfile. This will skip Storefront and Admin Panel. If you would want to include the Admin Panel please add spree_backend to your Gemfile.

Run rails sever

rails s

Browse Storefront

Go to http://localhost:3000

Browse Admin Panel

Go to http://localhost:3000/admin
