React Progressive Web Application Reference Storefront

The React Progressive Web Application (PWA) Reference Storefront is a flexible e-commerce website built on Elastic Path’s RESTful e-commerce API, Cortex API. Through Cortex API, the storefront uses the e-commerce capabilities provided by Elastic Path Commerce and gets data in a RESTful manner.

Features

  • You can access the storefront on various devices, such as tablets, mobile phones, or computers.
  • E-commerce functionality, such as cart, authentication, profile, or search, and the website presentation are separated. With theming of React components, front-end developers need not change the JavaScript to update the CSS files, and the JavaScript developers can develop functionality without changing front-end.
  • The storefront is an open source mobile PWA with the capabilities for local browser storage page caching and persistent session management.
  • You can customize the API calls made to Cortex by modifying the configuration files for your custom implementation.
