Warning

Aiming to display a flexible product list, the shelf and shelf.relatedProducts block is deprecated and is now configured using the Product Summary List, the Product Summary Shelf and the Slider Layout blocks. To learn how to configure it, access Building a Shelf.

The Shelf app displays a list of products on your store pages, helping you build your shop window and work on your store's visual merchandising.

{"base64":"  ","img":{"width":2852,"height":1266,"type":"png","mime":"image/png","wUnits":"px","hUnits":"px","length":601365,"url":"https://user-images.githubusercontent.com/52087100/70079904-60dc5280-15e4-11ea-8ef6-0aa69cadd61d.png"}}

Configuration

  1. Add the shelf app to your theme's dependencies in the manifest.json file:

_10
"dependencies": {
_10
"vtex.shelf": "1.x",
_10
}

Now, you can use all the blocks exported by the shelf app. Check out the complete list below:

Block nameDescription

Renders in the product details page a list of related products.
  1. Declare the shelf.relatedProduct in the product template (store.product) using its props. For example:

_10
{
_10
"store.product": {
_10
"children": [
_10
"breadcrumb",
_10
"flex-layout.row#main",
_10
"shelf.relatedProducts"
_10
]
_10
}
_10
}
