Vue Storefront - An Open-Source PWA Solution For eCommerce That Makes You Stand Out

Shorten Your Time To Market And Delight Your Customers

Vue Storefront is – as the name suggests – a frontend Vue.js application used to display the store to the user in a performant, neat way. It’s a battle-tested bodiless set of modular features that can be easily connected to various eCommerce backend applications in a glimpse of an eye. As it’s an independent frontend application, you can scale it separately just to fit your needs. In other words, it’s the most visible part of your online shop which will be seen and used by every user that comes there.

All you have to have is an API layer exposed like REST or GraphQL in your platform and install (or prepare) an integration package to the Vue Storefront itself. Modern shops usually need to use various third-party tools, and Vue Storefront helps you connect them to your solution seamlessly, thanks to low coupling and high cohesion.

Currently, the supported version is the Vue Storefront 2.

When do you need it? - Familiar issues

Long time to market

In the modern world speed is really important, and not only in the runtime context, but it also applies to all development processes. If you can provide business value faster and better, you can just simply outrun your competition. Vue Storefront provides hundreds of modules for all common functionalities which are ready to be used.

Slow shopfront

Nowadays almost nobody likes to wait, so it’s crucial to have a fast and performant page. Some estimates say that up to 1% of users will leave your website for every 100ms of delay in page load. With Vue Storefront you minimize this time and it’s done thanks to the lazy loading, lazy hydration, extensive caching, and reasonable preloading. Just let the Vue Storefront do the hard work for you!

Unresponsive and unattractive look

User experience is a key factor that affects the whole user’s satisfaction. Even when using the default Vue Storefront theme it looks and works smoothly. You can go even further with the customizations that Vue Storefront is made for. There are absolutely no limitations in terms of UI customization. Your theme is just a regular Nuxt.js project, which you can customize to any degree.

Bad application architecture

Vue Storefront is coming with a set of good architectural decisions based on years of experience with the online selling market.

Complicated migrations

As a platform-agnostic solution, you can switch your backend really fast, just by reconfiguring the shopfront application (applies to backends that Vue Storefront has integrations prepared for).

No mobile website version

Do you know that more than 50% of web traffic is a mobile one? If you don’t have a proper mobile version for your online shop, you just lose money. Vue Storefront solves this issue by giving you a mobile-friendly website out of the box and with PWA experience, which looks and behaves like a native application on mobile devices.
