- DEMO of the new Spree UX introduced in Spree 4.1.0
- Success Stories
- Maintenance Policy
Spree is a complete open source e-commerce solution built with Ruby on Rails. It was originally developed by Sean Schofield and is now maintained by Spark Solutions. We're open to contributions and accepting new Core Team members.
Spree consists of several different gems, each of which are maintained in a single repository and documented in a single set of online documentation.
- spree_frontend (default Rails customer frontend)
- spree_backend (Admin Panel)
- spree_cmd (Command-line tools)
- spree_core (Models, Services & Mailers, the basic components of Spree that it can't run without)
- spree_sample (Sample data)
You don't need to install all of the components. Only the Core is mandatory.
If you want to run the demo on your local machine, you can use our docker image. It will download and run sample Spree application on http://localhost:3000
docker run --rm -it -p 3000:3000 spreecommerce/spree:3.6.4

Add Spree gems to your
gem 'spree', '~> 4.1.0.rc1' gem 'spree_auth_devise', '~> 4.1.0.rc1' gem 'spree_gateway', '~> 3.7'
gem 'spree', '~> 3.7.0' gem 'spree_auth_devise', '~> 3.5' gem 'spree_gateway', '~> 3.4'
gem 'spree', '~> 3.5.0' gem 'spree_auth_devise', '~> 3.5' gem 'spree_gateway', '~> 3.4'
gem 'spree', '~> 3.2.7' gem 'spree_auth_devise', '~> 3.5' gem 'spree_gateway', '~> 3.4'
Note: if you run into
Bundler could not find compatible versions for gem "sprockets": error message, please run
Use the install generators to set up Spree
rails g spree:install --user_class=Spree::User rails g spree:auth:install rails g spree_gateway:install
Alternatively, if you want to use the bleeding edge version of Spree, add this to your Gemfile:
gem 'spree', github: 'spree/spree' gem 'spree_auth_devise', github: 'spree/spree_auth_devise' gem 'spree_gateway', github: 'spree/spree_gateway'
Note: The master branch is not guaranteed to ever be in a fully functioning state. It is unwise to use this branch in a production system you care deeply about.
By default, the installation generator (
rails g spree:install) will run
migrations as well as adding seed and sample data and will copy frontend views
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 rake db:migrate bundle exec rake db:seed bundle exec rake spree_sample:load
Browse Admin Interface
If you have
spree_auth_devise installed, you can generate a new admin user by running

Spree is meant to be run within the context of Rails application and the source code is essentially a collection of gems. You can easily create a sandbox application inside of your cloned source directory for testing purposes.
Clone the Git repo
git clone git://github.com/spree/spree.git cd spree
Install the gem dependencies
Create a sandbox Rails application for testing purposes which automatically performs all necessary database setup
bundle exec rake sandbox
Start the server
cd sandbox rails server
We use CircleCI to run the tests for Spree.
You can see the build statuses at https://circleci.com/gh/spree/spree.
Each gem contains its own series of tests, and for each directory, you need to do a quick one-time creation of a test application and then you can use it to run the tests. For example, to run the tests for the core project.
cd core BUNDLE_GEMFILE=../Gemfile bundle exec rake test_app bundle exec rspec spec
If you would like to run specs against a particular database you may specify the dummy app's database, which defaults to sqlite3.
DB=postgres bundle exec rake test_app
If you want to run specs for only a single spec file
bundle exec rspec spec/models/spree/state_spec.rb
If you want to run a particular line of spec
bundle exec rspec spec/models/spree/state_spec.rb:7
You can also enable fail fast in order to stop tests at the first failure
FAIL_FAST=true bundle exec rspec spec/models/state_spec.rb
If you want to run the simplecov code coverage report
COVERAGE=true bundle exec rspec spec
If you're working on multiple facets of Spree to test, please ensure that you have a postgres user:
createuser -s -r postgres
To execute all the tests, you may want to run this command at the root of the Spree project to generate test applications and run specs for all the facets:
