Vue Storefront 2 and PWA

Vue Storefront 2 is the latest version of the PWA frontend platform based on the vue.js framework created on the principles of open-source software.

  • PWA (Progressive Web App) combines the best features of a website and a mobile application. This technology is used by internet giants such as Twitter and AliExpress.
    The technology allows you to use the created web application as close to the mobile application as possible, making it a perfect solution for companies that want to spread more among users of mobile devices while minimizing financial outlays. There is no need to create additional applications.
  • GraphQL as a connector
    It allows the client – in our case, the PWA application to create a query to obtain only the information he needs at a given moment – thus ensuring flexibility, optimization of the number of requests to the server and the size of their responses, and certainty of the type of data that we expect.

The connection of Vue Storefront 2 and Sylius takes place through API communication using GraphQL technology, which significantly increases efficiency and gives more freedom compared to the standard version in the REST architecture.

  • Users login
  • Browsing the product catalog with basic filtering

The mechanism of GraphQL operation itself is based on API Platform implementations.

The complete integration is completed by a plugin created by our friends from RealtainmentBerlin (Artnight).

Interesting facts about PWA

Increased Mobile Conversion

George.com enhances the convenience of mobile customers with the new Progressive Web App.
George.com is the UK's leading fashion brand, part of ASDA Walmart. After upgrading its website to Progressive Web App, the brand experienced a 31% increase in mobile conversion.

  • 3.8x - Faster average page load time

  • 2x - Lower bounce rate

  • 31% - Increase in conversion rate

  • 20% - More page views per visit

  • 28% - Higher average time on site for home screen visits

More Users = More Money

The implementation of PWA in Starbucks resulted in 2x active users a day. We see users ordering via computers at almost the same speed as they do with mobile browsers.

PWA Is The Future

The majority of smartphone users are more likely to use the company's mobile website when browsing or making purchases because they don't want to download the app.
One of the main reasons for uninstalling an application is limited memory (while installed PWAs usually take less than 1MB). In addition, smartphone users are more likely to shop at mobile sites that offer relevant product recommendations, with 85% of smartphone users saying mobile notifications are useful.
