If you’ve been following Shogun, you may already know we’re committed to bringing our proven no-code software expertise into the headless frontend space with our newest product for mid-sized merchants, Shogun Frontend.

Back in June, we announced an exciting no-code beta, and today I’m pleased to share that we’ve now launched this new feature into general availability for Shogun Frontend customers!

So what does this mean for those implementing a frontend build? 

Well for starters…

You can now build landing page content for Shogun Frontend stores using drag and drop components

Starting today, you can use our latest feature—Page Builder for Frontend—to build landing pages or site content for your Shogun Frontend store using the no-code drag-and-drop components offered in our other product, Shogun Page Builder

Using dozens of elements, pre-made blocks, and even animations—the content you create with Page Builder for Frontend will publish seamlessly to your Shogun Frontend site, outputting as a PWA. Which, you may know, is exciting as your ecommerce team can now basically build a software output without tons of developer reliance. (PWAs are transforming how shoppers can interact with brands!)

How does it work?

Here’s what this looks like in the Experience Manager:

From here, you’ll see the components available from Shogun Page Builder for creating landing pages or new site content. You can even access dynamically generated Product Box Elements and Collection Elements.

Once your changes are made, you can click ‘Save’ to send the updated page back to your Shogun Frontend instance. When refreshed, you’ll see your updated page in the Shogun Frontend Experience Manager visual preview, like this:

Here’s my colleague Andy with a quick tour/walkthrough of the flow:


Pretty sweet, hey! Along with our Starter Kit generally, this represents a huge time saver for brands currently implementing a Shogun Frontend build.

This product crossover feature marks a key milestone on our no-code mission to empower non-technical ecommerce team members to create site content quickly and independently.

Facilitating drag and drop content in this way aligns with our vision for a future where Shogun Frontend is entirely no-code, and frees up ecommerce development teams to focus on large, revenue-driving initiatives instead of day-to-day content updates. 

This feature is available to Shogun Frontend customers today!

I encourage you to take it for a spin if you’re undergoing a build, and share your feedback with us! We’re excited for what this will mean in the short-term future!

Shogun Frontend is a unified Frontend Platform for rapidly scaling brands who need elevated shopping experiences and the benefits of headless commerce (without assembling a custom-built headless tech stack!) For those with advanced content needs, this solution is the next step for unlocking complete design control and store growth.
