Lightning-fast Vue Storefront for an omnichannel headless Spree Commerce backend
Krakow/Warsaw/Berlin, 4th October 2021, In close cooperation with Spree Commerce and Vue Storefront, Upside is happy to announce the release of the Spree - Vue Storefront 2 integration.
Google itself is pushing Progressive Web Apps as a universal, mobile-first web platform of the future. In such a competitive industry as eCommerce, with immense pressure on businesses to innovate and distinguish themselves, PWA is an acronym making a splash among decision makers. Optimizing page load times, SEO, product discovery and purchasing user flows is the name of the game. To cater for the demand for PWA on the front end, Upside, a leading technology agency focusing on digital commerce, decided to build a custom Vue Storefront connector with Spree Commerce to deliver the best possible customer experiences.
Vue Storefront is a lightning-fast frontend platform for headless e-commerce solutions. It boosts your site performance, shapes the customer journey and frees your developer's creativity. It’s the fastest growing open-source storefront in the world.
Spree Commerce is a headless, omnichannel eCommerce backend engine complete with functionality for any eCommerce business or use case. With over 4000 installations globally it is being used by brands such as GoDaddy, Martha Stewart & Marley Spoon, Goop, Everlane, Blue Bottle Coffee, Huckberry, and the New England Patriots, among others.
The Spree - Vue Storefront 2 connector provides reusable components for building Vue Storefront-based frontends that connect to Spree on the backend. It also comes with a default theme that allows developers to quickly start their implementation of e-commerce storefronts. The integration is currently in the Beta phase. The goal is to deliver a version 1.0 at the beginning of Q4, 2021.
This new integration is a great starting point for delivering stylish, smooth UX for any popular use case, both B2C or D2C, from single-brand stores to multi-vendor marketplaces. It allows for unrestricted frontend evolution and maximizing KPIs while keeping the backend upgrade path clean and future-proof. It's a perfect combination for any agile eCommerce business.
