Vue Storefront

Progressive Web App (PWA) development platform for eCommerce

4.6/5 (14 reviews)

Vue Storefront Overview

Vue Storefront uses Progressive Web App (PWA) technology to provide eCommerce developers with a platform-agnostic platform for building and serving storefront web and mobile apps. Available freely via GitHub under the MIT open source license, users can also purchase commercial, cloud-hosted Storefront Cloud plans. PWA then facilitates the development of single, scalable and responsive apps compatible with every device or browser including iOS and Android. Delivering smaller and lighter weight performance than native apps, Vue Storefront supports native platform functionalities such as push notifications, full-screen views, home screen access, plus an offline mode that ensures eCommerce stores still function when web connectivity is compromised.

Built on the Vue.js framework, Vue Storefront apps also connect with any third-party eCommerce backend via API. Integration with popular solutions such as Magento (1/2), WooCommerce and Pimcore is made possible by a published boilerplate, enabling eCommerce data synchronization and the change of backend setups without affecting the frontend. Open source features include a basic storefront template, Slack community access and the PWA Storefront app, while the subscription-based Storefront Cloud adds cloud hosting, backups, AMP rendering engine and open loyalty program.

A new user experience for the web

Vue StoreFront help merchand :
- to reduce hosting cost.
- allows to accept more simultaneous users
- Reduce the bounce rate
- Increase business

Pros

Speed of navigation is a new discovery for ecommerce.
The possibility of navigating in the metro for example is a real plus. We can now prepare our purchases during our time off in transport for example.
No more native applications, we have a web application available which is updated without any action.
View StoreFront offers advantages over the Magento PWA for exemple:
- Resilience (Thanks to ElasticSearch)
- Possibility to change backend without changing Frontend.

Cons

The number of missing features such as catalog rules or basket rules.

Its good. But It'll take some time for getting on board.

Pros

I like its features. Although Features like offline support etc are may be not the very need...

Cons

I like the support of both elastic search and graphql. Although i think its a little bit more complex to onboard with for developers without knowledge of too many technologies used in the vue storefront. Magento, ElasticSearch, GraphQL,Redis, Service Workers, apart from the traditional expressjs and Vue Package(Vue, Vuex,Nuxt etc...).

And It legs backend management portal, we still have to use magento admin portal essentially.

Why you guys did not make it independent of magento or prestashop etc..

Most comprehensive PWA

By using Vue Storefront, we have been able to cut on bounce rate and server resources.

Pros

Built with VueJS which is for sure the future of front end, Vue Storefront guarantees great performance. It is open source, easy to set up, great components and most importantly, it has a large community of very active users and contributors. Makes use of ElasticSearch and GraphQL thus very efficient and powerful.

Cons

Some of the functionalities are limited and the fact that it does not allow the use of jQuery and other dependencies. There are still several bugs that need to be fixed to make it perfect.
