We have been talking about the impact of PWAs (Progressive Web Applications) for some time now. And a few months ago we talked about the advantages of Magento PWA, which offered the possibility of developing an e-commerce mobile app based on Magento.

Among its advantages we highlighted:

  • Its shorter development time and lower associated costs compared to a native application.
  • That it is not necessary to develop an application for each operating system (Android, iOS).
  • It also requires less SEO effort as Magento PWA is SEO friendly.
  • The possibility of having push notifications.
  • A better user experience.
  • And the possibility of reaching more potential users.

Today we go one step further and delve into Adobe Commerce’s PWA Studio. The perfect tool to build progressive web apps for your eCommerce quickly and cost-effectively.


What is PWA Studio?

PWA Studio is a developer-focused platform that helps implement next-generation mobile experiences. PWA Studio comprises a comprehensive set of tools for creating online stores with app-like shopping environments. This helps eCommerce to solve the dilemma of mobile conversion while creating highly personalized shopping experiences.

The main features include:

  • Tools to customize content and add local preferences.

  • An intuitive and easy-to-use user experience with built-in Page Builder content management capabilities.
  • Modularized component architecture.
  • Developer tools specially designed for rapid prototyping, helpful debugging, rich feedback, and increased productivity.

The philosophy of PWA Studio is to facilitate the task of developers. That’s why it was built with your experience in mind, offering you robust tools, extensive documentation, and user tutorials. Additionally, its focus as an open source project on GitHub allows development teams to become familiar with the additional resources and technology required.
