Sunrise Starter Project

The recommended way to start using Sunrise is to clone the Sunrise Starter Project and use it as a template project. It already contains all dependencies (i.e. Sunrise Framework and Theme) and configurations needed to run your Sunrise-based project.

Starting from scratch

Alternatively you can start your own Play Framework project and configure it yourself, using Sunrise as dependency:

val sunriseFrameworkVersion = "1.0.0-M9" // or desired version
libraryDependencies ++= Seq(
  // add Sunrise Framework dependencies as needed, e.g.:
  "com.commercetools.sunrise" %% "product-catalog" % sunriseFrameworkVersion,
  "com.commercetools.sunrise" %% "shopping-cart" % sunriseFrameworkVersion,
  "com.commercetools.sunrise" %% "my-account" % sunriseFrameworkVersion,
  "com.commercetools.sunrise" %% "wishlist" % sunriseFrameworkVersion,
  // add the desired Sunrise Theme as dependency, e.g.:
  "com.commercetools.sunrise" % "commercetools-sunrise-theme" % "0.61.1"

These dependencies provide default Controllers which can be enabled by extending them into your own Controller and registering a route for it.

For example, if we wanted to enable an endpoint to see the contents of the cart, we would simply extend the SunriseCartDetailController:

// here you can register controller components
public final class CartDetailController extends SunriseCartDetailController {

    public CartDetailController(final ContentRenderer contentRenderer,
                                final CartFinder cartFinder,
                                final CartDetailPageContentFactory pageContentFactory) {
        // parameters that you can change via injection
        super(contentRenderer, cartFinder, pageContentFactory);

    public String getTemplateName() {
        // here goes the name of your template
        return "cart";
    // here you can override methods to change behaviour

Then we only need to associate our CartDetailController to a route with the desired pattern in conf/routes:

# Shows the details of the cart belonging to the current session
GET  /:languageTag/cart String)

Accessing http://localhost:9000/en/cart should now allow us to see the contents of our cart.

Check Sunrise Starter Project to adjust any other required configuration.

Integration tests against commercetools platform

  • Setup your environment variables (use a test project), so you need not to put your shop credentials under version control:
export SUNRISE_IT_CTP_PROJECT_KEY="your-CTP-project-key"
export SUNRISE_IT_CTP_CLIENT_SECRET="your-CTP-client-secret"
export SUNRISE_IT_CTP_CLIENT_ID="your-CTP-client-id"
  • sbt it:test
