Nuxt.js is an open-source, serverless framework based on multiple frameworks including Vue.js, Node.js, Webpack and Babel.js. Created to build fast, complex isomorphic applications quickly. The framework handles the complex pre-coding configuration and UI rendering for your app, so that developers can focus on writing code. Additional benefits of Nuxt.js include automatic code-splitting, page caching and prefetching, bundling, and static site generation.
Nuxt.js is fully capable of delivering the speedy websites that consumers demand. We performed a study to discover which modern frontend framework delivers the fastest websites and found Nuxt.js leads the pack, in front of React, Angular, Vue.js and Next.js. Moovweb is proud to be a Nuxt.js sponsor to help promote modern, open-source frameworks working to facilitate a faster Web.
SFCC offers two APIs are: Open Commerce API (OCAPI) and Commerce Cloud API (CCAPI) which is in beta.
The Open Commerce API (OCAPI) is a RESTful API used by SFCC which consists of three component APIs:
OCAPI is a fairly robust API, however if your site is still on Pipelines architecture you may have a harder time integrating your existing customizations with OCAPI. In those cases use synthetic APIs and migrate that functionality to OCAPI at a later date. CCAPI layer in beta seems promising, but it is too early to judge the extent in which it will support speedy headless storefronts.
