Widget templates

Widget templates are reusable Handlebars-enabled HTML templates that define the structure of the widget on a page.


Widgets are units of content placed on specific pages in a Stencil theme. Widgets consist of a widget configuration and a widget template UUID and render as part of the storefront’s HTML.


Regions are specific locations in the Stencil theme template files where you can place a widget.


Placements determine the region where you place widgets and in what order.
