Impulse theme - Upgrade to 2.0

4 0 1

Hi All,
I have a store on Impulse theme, and we need to upgrade to 2.0
The theme has quite a few customisations since starting a few years back, so I want to know if it is a big job to change it over... Or is it easier to pay a Shopify Dev to get it done for me? 
Where is the best place to look for a reasonably priced dev to convert it over for us?

Hello @Justinvz777 

Online Store 2.0 introduces a new JSON template format that lets you add new and existing sections to most pages in your theme, and add and remove sections from any page directly in the Shopify theme editor.

You can migrate individual templates to take advantage of Online Store 2.0 features in specific parts of your theme, or you can migrate the entire theme by migrating all templates.

You don't need to be a developer or a Shopify Partner to migrate your own theme manually, but migrating a theme requires an understanding of Liquid, HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

Let me know if you need a developer.

Hi, do you know the link to the new template format? I have intermediate knowledge of web development, but also willing to hire a developer if it'll save me the headache and be affordable/
