Dragon Fruit is an e-commerce Jekyll Theme meant for quick and easy shop setup. It is powered by Snipcart.
Setting up the site is easier than most CMS based e-commerce websites. All you need is an API key from snipcart. Refer to installation for more information.
Economic hosting options
A CMS based e-commerce site like Woocommerce(WordPress), Shopify, Prestashop, etc, needs a proper server that supports database.
Since we are using no database in our site, we can host it in any static hosting service and even for free on GitHub, Gitlab, Bitbucket, etc.
Add Products with ease
Adding new products takes not much effort. It involves placing appropriate image(size doesn’t matter) in a directory and listing out all the attributes like price, weight, etc.
The theme loads lightning fast as there is no backend database. This speed improves the shopping experience a lot compared to other e-commerce platforms.
