We've added Shopware for PLAY and DEV.

Allso, the Essentials image does now have a simple makefile that easily downloads your target Shopware 6 version for you. You can then simply continue your installation after choosing your version.

We're happy to announce that the new dockware versions 1.4 are being rolled out. I think its the first mass rollout with more than 100 images being updated. we have a huge QA pipe by now (thats why some did not work and im glad about that) but if you face any problems, just let us know please. We did also go through the github issues and updated the labels. so you should now also know if something is broken because of shopware itself...which was sometimes confusing. how do you know what version you have? "docker logs" should show the version 1.4 at the top of the output when starting your container. Heres the changelog:

  • new feature: ENV variable BUILD_PLUGIN=myPluginName allows you to build your plugin with the provided dockware version without starting dockware directly.

  • real demo data for Shopware > 6.2

  • ready to use base.scss class in the dockware demo plugin (for watcher tests)

  • PimpMyLog has now improved error logs for SW5 + SW6

  • PimpMyLog is now PHP 8 ready

  • SW5 has now Mailcatcher it should automatically work

  • different improvements and fixes across...yeah...everything


Since docker engine is getting always better we now prefer to use bind-mounting instead of sftp. But sftp is still a good alternative if bind-mounting does not work for you well.
