Vue Storefront, the fastest-growing open-source storefront solution for headless commerce, has just released v1.0 of its official Vendure integration.
Vendure is a headless e-commerce framework. This means we take care of all the typical e-commerce functionality (orders, customers, inventory, tax, promotions, etc.), and expose all of this functionality via our GraphQL API.
One of the major benefits of headless architecture is that you are free to build completely custom front-end solutions without the limitations imposed by traditional monolithic solutions. The trade-off is that you need to actually build it, and that takes both time and expertise. This acts as a barrier to entry for those without the resources to build out and entire storefront from scratch.
That’s where Vue Storefront comes in. It provides a complete, lightning-fast front-end to connect your entire headless commerce stack. Built on Vue and Nuxt, it brings a modern, open-source approach and tech stack to headless e-commerce. Out-of-the-box, it provides all typical storefront functionality as well as advanced features like server-side rendering and outstanding developer productivity.
The project has seen explosive growth over the past year, growing from a team of 5 to almost 60 and recently raising $17.4 million in funding. It already has integrations for several of the major e-commerce platforms, but the Vendure integration is the only one that unlocks full-stack, open-source Node.js headless commerce.
Vendure & Vue Storefront gets you rapidly up-and-running with full-stack open-source headless commerce using a single tech stack. It provides a set of building blocks (“composables”) which seemlessly integrate with the Vendure Shop API as well as a modern, responsive, clean storefront design.
Work on the integration was started by community members, with the majority of development driven by Jakub Andrzejewski, Tech Lead at Vue Storefront, who was drawn to Vendure by the familiar tech stack:

The bottom line is this: with Vendure + Vue Storefront, you have the fastest route to a modern, production-ready headless commerce solution.
