Use Shopify Dawn Theme for Multiple Projects via GitHub Connect

Duplicate Shopify/dawn

On GitHub create a new repository (e.g., dawn-project-1, dawn-project-2, etc.)

git clone --bare
cd dawn.git
git push --mirror
git push --mirror
git push --mirror
cd ..
rm -rf dawn.git

Clone Newly Created Project Theme

Next, clone your newly created project repository (e.g., your-username/dawn-project-1), for instance using GitHub Desktop.

Staying up to date with Dawn changes

To pull in the latest changes from the Shopify/dawn repository, you can add a remote upstream pointing to this repository.

git remote -v
git remote add upstream
git fetch upstream
git pull upstream main

Connect Shopify Store with GitHub Repository

In the theme section of your Shopify admin you can connect to a GitHub repository via “Add theme” button.
