How to contribute?

Dockware is built with Orca (

Please use the provided makefile to install dependencies, and to generate the Dockerfiles for building and testing.

If you create new features and changes, please always keep in mind, where to add your modifications.

If you want to create features for all images and tags, then use the global template. Otherwise please add your changes in either the corresponding image or even on a "tag" level.

How do releases work?!

Dockware is indeed a new type of project...and we finally figured out a way to manage releases for you.

New dockware releases work almost the same as traditional projects. The only difference is, that a support for a new Shopware version is not in the scope of a release.

So what is a release then?

A dockware release consists of new features, fixes and improvements across the full set of tags of all image or specific images.


We add a new logging application to all dockware/dev tags, that's a new release.

We add a new Shopware 6.x version...thats not a new release!

All changes can be found in the file.

This file is also embedded within the image, when we build it (/var/www)

When you launch your dockware container, it should also output its version number in "docker logs" so you can verify what features and fixes you should have.

In addition to this, GitHub users can search for tags and releases in our repository. The GitHub releases will also included the built ORCA distribution files, which are not included in the repository, to avoid divergent versions.

When will a release be available?

As soon as we create a new official release, we trigger our building pipelines on Github.

All official images including their last publishing date can be found at

Creating a new Shopware Version

At the moment the step to add a new Shopware version is to manually create a few files, but it's still very easy.

Please add 2 new folders to variants/play and variants/dev (just copy the previous release). Then open the variables.json in each folder and adjust the Shopware Version, as well as the Download URL.

Afterwards, add the new entries in the manifest.json. Please don't forget to move the alias "latest" to the correct version.

Now open the file build/WorkflowBuilder/Constant.php and adjust the correct latest Shopware version. This is for Cypress double verifications.

Then open the build folder in your CLI and run "make generate-tests" to also create new SVRUnit tests.

That's it! You can now commit your changes.
