Headless Shopify is a decoupled eCommerce platform that allows you to build your frontend using any technology you want, while still using Shopify as your backend. This means you can have your Shopify store running on a different server than your frontend, which gives you a lot of flexibility in how you architecture your eCommerce solution.
With traditional Shopify, you use Shopify’s provided themes and templates to build out the frontend of your store. While you do have some control over the look and feel of your store, it’s not as customizable as headless Shopify.
NextJs is the most popular frontend framwork right now. This demo store was built using NextJs on frontend and Shopify on backend. You can feel the speed. Nextjs brings various optimizations out of the box giving developers like us ultimate control over customizations.
We don't need to code everything from scratch but use this github repo to kickstart a new project.
If you're thinking about building an online store, headless Shopify is a great option to consider. It offers a lot of flexibility and freedom to create a unique and engaging shopping experience for your customers. It has SEO benefits that a traditional Shopify lacks.
