UPDATE: Due to a lot of requests to postpone the end date of the challenge we decided to set the final date to 21st of March. Three weeks more to submit your works :)

The Vue Storefront Community is growing like crazy! The Category Power of PWAs and great people are making the numbers:

  • 4,000 Github Stars

It’s becoming a vibrant ecosystem where agencies are building shops for merchants (with a growing number of production deployments), vendors are providing them with modules and developers and freelancers are contributing new features to the core.

The key to its success is its openness. Anyone can build a module, theme or integration with a third-party backend for Vue Storefront.

We’re receiving a dozen of leads weekly from users wanting Vue Storefront connected to their WooCommerce, or Prestashop backends. It’s a great chance for our partner companies to build massively popular integrations and modules which we’ll promote on our Marketplace — Piotr Karwatka, co-founder of Vue Storefront.

This post is an invitation to build The Vue Storefront Marketplace with us.

We’d like to leverage Vue Storefront’s popularity and make our commitment even stronger — by providing the community with quality themes, modules and integrations.
