A Framework-Agnostic Magento 2 Integration: The Next Step in eCommerce Frontend Development



May 12, 2023

We're happy to introduce the latest Magento 2 Integration from Alokai. This integration connects your frontend application smoothly with a Magento 2 backend, ensuring a seamless bridge between the two.

The Framework-Agnostic Design

A highlight of this Magento 2 Integration is its framework-agnostic design. This design includes an SDK and middleware that are framework-agnostic.

What does that mean for you?

It means you have the flexibility to use popular frameworks such as Nuxt and Next.js. If you choose, you can work without any framework at all. The SDK, built using TypeScript, is adaptable and can be installed in any application developed in JavaScript or TypeScript.

If your project could benefit from a UI library made with eCommerce in mind, Storefront UI may be a good fit. You can find more details here .

What's Next?

The Journey to Build the Next Storefront Boilerplate

We're proud of the SDK and see it as a significant step forward. It is particularly useful if you're aiming to create a new frontend application that pairs with your existing Magento 2 headless store.

However, we're always looking for ways to push our products further, and that's why our next move is the development of a fully functional open-source boilerplate application.

This application will incorporate the new Magento 2 integration, the SDK and middleware, and of course, Storefront UI 2. We've chosen to use Nuxt 3 for this initial boilerplate due to its excellent performance, flexibility, and advanced features.

As we move forward with this project, we'll document the process and share updates so you can follow along with our progress. Here's how you can stay informed:

Inviting Collaborators

If you're interested, you're more than welcome to join us in developing this open-source storefront using the new Magento 2 SDK and Storefront UI 2.

Whether you're an eCommerce expert, a beginner in open-source contributions, or simply curious to be part of an exciting project, we'd be delighted to have you on board.

Everyone has something valuable to contribute, regardless of experience level. So, let's code together and see where this project takes us. We're excited about this journey and we hope you are too.
