Schema Builder

This feature can help you build your theme settings by drag and drop. You don't need to manually type the setting contents with JSON anymore. You just need to create sections and fields, drag it up or down in draggable schema and Motifmate will automatically generate a JSON schema for you.

Copy Theme Setting Field ID

Most of the time, you need to use your theme setting value while coding a template. In Schema Builder, you can copy this setting field id and get it as a Liquid object code. Here's an example :

  1. Click a section you want to get the field id.

    Home
  2. Hover the field (example in screenshot : Twitter URL), the field id will be displayed right after field name.

    Home
  3. Click the id and Motifmate will display a notification that field id has been copied.
  4. Paste (ctrl+v or cmd+v for macOS) to any line in Editor.
Above example will output this code settings.social_twitter_link.
