The 2.10 release brings Front-Commerce to the unified commerce market. With Proximis headless capabilities, merchants can now offer a great experience to their customers no matter where they are.

We’ve improved our Front-Commerce modules offer too, with a shipping and a payment provider that solve B2C merchants needs.

In September, 3 new Front-Commerce storefronts went live with very different experiences: B2C, Omnichannel B2C and B2B! We would like to congratulate our partners PH2M and Smile for these successful launches 👏👏

Our website has a new look. We’ve simplified our message and put the focus on everyone who works with us. What do you think?

2.9: Front-Commerce payments improved, platform agnostic Adyen support and Prismic enhancements

Front-Commerce 2.9 is out! Over the past few weeks, we focused on delivering incremental improvements to existing features. Everyone on the team has also taken some time off during this period to recharge batteries.

2.8: Content-Driven Commerce with Prismic, Proximis connector in alpha and Summer backlog cleaning

Front-Commerce 2.8 is available! This new version contains advanced Prismic features for Content Driven storefronts, an alpha version of our new Proximis connector and several “Summer backlog cleaning” items (bugfixes, improvements from performance profilings, technical debt removal).

2.7: SmartForms, Prismic, Magento 2.4.2 compatibility

Front-Commerce 2.7 is available! This new version integrates practical solutions to improve your efficiency.

2.6: HTTP Caching, Store credits, Wishlist sharing and remote configurations

Front-Commerce 2.6 embraces HTTP Caching to bring your storefront performance to a whole new level.

Leverage proxy or CDN caching to get the performance of static websites with the flexibility you’d expect for a dynamic eCommerce storefront. We’re eager to see what you will do with this!

We’ve also added new features (Store credits, wishlist improvements, remote configuration), updated our dependencies and fixed several issues.

2.5: RMA feature, search datasources and shipping modules

Front-Commerce 2.5 is one of the most productive releases we had so far. Our team worked hard to improve the product and increase its flexibility:

2.4: new default theme "Chocolatine"

2.3: advanced Magento 2 features, new Payment methods and performance improvements

Front-Commerce 2.3 is our first release of 2021. It contains an increased support of Magento 2 advanced features (such as more product types, guest checkout and product reviews), new Payment methods and performance improvements.

Release: Front-Commerce 2.2

Front-Commerce 2.2 has a heavy focus on Magento 1 features thanks to new clients migrating their Legacy Magento 1 shops on Front-Commerce. Read more about this version.

Release: Front-Commerce 2.1

Front-Commerce 2.1 contains new features for Magento2, Affirm and Adyen payments along with several bundle improvements for stores with many languages. Read more about this version.

Announcing Front-Commerce 2.0

Front-Commerce 2.0 has been released today. It is the result of years of development for our production proven React PWA storefront compatible with Magento 1 and Magento 2. Let’s take a look at Front-Commerce’s most popular features.

Front-Commerce 2.0 RC1: eCommerce web performance for humans

Front-Commerce 2.0.0-rc.1 has been released today. More performant and with better defaults, this version is what will make your website faster. This is why we bumped the major version.

Shutting Front-Commerce Lite down

We are shutting down Front-Commerce Lite, our open-source prototyping starter kit for React eCommerce storefronts created back in 2018.

The reason is simple: we feel that in 2020 developers are now more aware about PWA storefronts, React for SPA and headless commerce. We think that they could grasp the benefits of Front-Commerce by reading its documentation, and experiment/prototype directly with Front-Commerce itself.

If you want to build a PoC and create usable, durable storefronts that increase sales we’ve got you covered with Front-Commerce. We have everything ready to onboard new partners and build a PoC within days!

Introducing Front-Commerce CMS demos

One of the strength of Front-Commerce is that it is platform agnostic: you can virtually connect to any service and display its data directly on your shop’s front-end.

But if you are not used to these notions, it might be unclear what does this means. This is why we’ve added two new demos focused on CMS solutions: WordPress and Prismic.

Front-Commerce supports Magento1

Have you heard? We are compatible with Magento1! And that’s awesome!

This means that you can finally develop your shop at your own schedule and you no longer are forced to migrate based on Magento’s schedule. This also means that you can improve your front-end without waiting for a complex migration of your current platform. Let’s see how this is possible with Front-Commerce.

Release: 1.0.0-beta.3

Front-Commerce 1.0.0-beta.3 has been released with several improvements: better embedded payment experience, customizable WYSIWYG components, configurations override…

We also want to thank our partner PH2M for their first PRs, and Webqam and Occitech for their contributions. This release is the first one with PR merged from partners!

Two smaller bugfixes releases have been tagged since 1.0.0-beta.0 so that some projects could move forward faster, but they did not contain any significant changes.

Release: 1.0.0-beta.0

Front-Commerce 1.0.0-beta.0 has been released with several improvements: revamped elasticsearch queries, translation fallbacks, wishlist, performance…

Our Reacticon

A few days ago we attended Reacticon, the first conference about PWA in the Magento ecosystem.

It was composed of one day of conferences and another one of code! Here are our key takeaways.

Hello world!

Today we are excited to unveil our new website:

It marks the beginning of Front-Commerce’s distribution, and is an answer to the traction we have seen over the past few weeks. This website is for developers wanting a better understanding of what Front-Commerce is, and why we made it this way.
