Internal Structure

Internal Structure

The internal structure of Shopware Frontends is designed to provide flexibility, reusability and abstraction. Shopware Frontends is a framework that is build with JavaScript and TypeScript.

Some of its components are based on Vue.js and Nuxt.js. The framework is designed to be used mostly with Vue.js and Nuxt.js, but it is not limited to these technologies. You can use it with any other JavaScript framework or library.

This section deals with the different packages and their abstractions. It is sorted by reusability / abstraction level from high to low and shows the main dependencies of each component respectively.

The Nuxt 3 module allows you to set up a Nuxt 3 project with Shopware Frontends. It provides the composables and api-client packages.

If you want to use these packages with a different Vue.js framework, see the guide for using Shopware Frontends in a custom project.


The CMS base is a Nuxt module that provides an implementation of all CMS components in Shopware based on utility-classes using unocss/Tailwind.css syntax. It is useful for projects that want to use the CMS components but design their own layout.
