Shopify Bulk File Upload To Assets

I wanted to upload my previous theme on shopify, which is a 401mb zip file. But the shopify only allows 50mb max upload. So I unzipped my theme, then moved away some files from their asset folder, making the theme lighter. Then rezipped it, and uploaded it.

Now, I have successfully uploaded the theme. I need to upload all 300+ images that were moved from their asset files back to the uploaded theme. How do I do a bulk upload on the assets?

There is no actual bulk upload option for shopify.

That said you can use themekit create a local instance of your theme and add the files in the asset folder and the themekit will start uploading each file separately in a queue.

You can refer to https://shopify.github.io/themekit/

In order for this to work you need:

  1. themekit added to your local machine
  2. create a private app in your store ( is to work you need:

    1. themekit added to your local machine
