Hi everyone!

I'm the creator of open-source headless e-commerce framework vendure. I'm based in Vienna, Austria but originally from the UK.

My project is still in the beta phase and I don't yet have any commercial offerings, but I plan to release some commercial plugins next year (open core model). Right now I have a healthy community with ~600 members in my Slack group and a number of teams & individuals building projects on top of Vendure. Just today I had a call with a team who is using Vendure to build the online store system for a major European supermarket chain!

I'm happy to be a part of this community and share insights with like-minded people šŸ‘‹

Vendure feels like a breath of fresh air. Iā€™m too scarred from working with Magento I guess to enjoy building E-commerce. But this looks so nice you might make me reconsider. Wish you all the best!

Hi Rick - that's great feedback ;) I started the project as a result of my frustration with the state of existing OSS offerings. There are a lot of frustrated e-commerce devs out there with similar scars. So yours is exactly the kind of reaction I am hoping to create!
