Hello,

I am looking for a way that how can I use "SQL server" as Database instead of "SQlite" while developing shopify app. I am not sure is this possible or not but I am trying to create a shopify app with SQL database. I have create an shopify app by using command "npm init @Shopify/app@latest" and by default it create SQlite DB. Thanks in advance.

If you want to develop an app using your own tech stack you'll probably have to build the app manually using the storefront API: https://shopify.dev/docs/api/storefront

 

There may be a way to just change the database in the app template, but I'm not too sure about that. 

 

Hope this helps!
