Under the hood

A modern stack

Saleor is powered by a GraphQL server running on top of Python 3 and a Django 2 framework. Both the storefront and the dashboard are React applications written in TypeScript and use Apollo GraphQL. Strict quality checks and reviews make the code easy to read and understand. High test coverage ensures it's also safe to deploy in a continuous manner.

Build to scale

Easily serve millions of products and thousands of customers. Saleor is optimized for cloud deployments using Docker. Horizontal scalability allows Saleor to take advantage of platforms such as AWS and Google Cloud and adapt to your traffic. Multi-container deployments allow your software to scale without downtimes. Persistent GraphQL Queries take advantage of CDN to ensure fast performance under even the heaviest of loads

Easy to customize

Saleor is designed for change. Automate any process like ordering, shipping or payment to the specific requirements of your business with an open source platform that is easy to adapt and extend. Create a bespoke store with your team in charge.
