Headless, composable, and microservices architecture could be confusing even for developers. But it gets more confusing when you look under the hood. With too many moving parts. And not a clear understanding of which component is supposed to do what. What is most confusing is this whole notion of the front end for the front end. Sound cryptic? It is! Why would you need that? There are many reasons. Caching, performance, ease of development, composability, and scalability. But mainly offline experience! But is offline experience important for retailers? Hell yeah, when you are going to be installing commerce front on every corner. Internet may not always be available. While this is great for developers as they have a lot more control over the process the way they like, are practitioners going to have the same control? So how does Vue Storefront help? And where does it fit in the architecture?

In today's episode, we are going to review Vue Storefront’s capabilities independently. We covered many grounds, including the importance of the front end of the front-end in composable architecture. We also discussed where Vue Storefront fits in the architecture and the importance of the API orchestration layer in connecting with various eCommerce, search, CMS, and best-of-breed eCommerce solutions. Finally, we discussed the importance of offline and lightweight JS packages that can improve the performance of eCommerce sites massively, increasing their SEO strength and, as a result having better conversion rates.
