I am trying to migrate existing SHOPIFY app to Theme app extension. Currently the app is creating custom pages from website, and then published the page into SHOPIFY store. Now i am a bit confused about the migration process. Project is built on PHP 7.4 and Phalcon 4 for the backend. While keeping the existing structure same is it possible to migrate it into theme app extension???

Hi Afsan,


You may need to adjust the existing structure of your app so that you're using the theme app extension APIs rather than what you would previously do with the Asset API.
