Project Summary

CoreShop Vue Storefront integration - first Progressive Web App (PWA) framework for Pimcore


First Progressive Web App for Pimcore and CoreShop

Build Status Branch stable Branch Develop Branch Develop

This projects bring You the Pimcore plus Coreshop support as a backend platform for Vue Storefront - first Progressive Web App for e-Commerce.

Vue Storefront is a standalone PWA storefront for your eCommerce, possible to connect with any eCommerce backend (eg. Magento, Pimcore, Prestashop or Shopware) through the API.

Video demo

See how it works! Sign up for a demo at (Vue Storefront integrated with Pimcore OR Magento2).

Pimcore data bridge

Vue Storefront is platform agnostic - which mean: it can be connected to virtually any eCommerce CMS. This project is a data connector for CoreShop and Pimcore data structures

The module is created as a Pimcore Symfony Bundle and provides the native data exchange capabilities of:

  • pushing the entities marked as Products (maped in the Pimcore Admin panel) to Elastic Search (including support for configurable products),
  • exposing all required dynamic API backends - like shopping cart, user accounts, totals etc.

Setup and installation

The Data Bridge is provided as a Pimcore extension (Symfony Bundle)


  • php 7.1 or above
  • pimcore/pimcore 5.4 or above
  • coreshop/core-shop 2.0.x-dev
  • vuestorefront and vuestorefront api containers must be visible for pimcore and vice versa

Register bundles

In app/AppKernel.php of Your Pimcore instance please add this line to registerBundlesToCollection:

        if (class_exists('\ONGR\ElasticsearchBundle\ONGRElasticsearchBundle')) {
            $collection->addBundle(new ONGR\ElasticsearchBundle\ONGRElasticsearchBundle);

        if (class_exists('\Cocur\Slugify\Bridge\Symfony\CocurSlugifyBundle')) {
            $collection->addBundle(new \Cocur\Slugify\Bridge\Symfony\CocurSlugifyBundle());

        if (class_exists('\SymfonyBundles\JsonRequestBundle\SymfonyBundlesJsonRequestBundle')) {
            $collection->addBundle(new \SymfonyBundles\JsonRequestBundle\SymfonyBundlesJsonRequestBundle());

        if (class_exists('\Lexik\Bundle\JWTAuthenticationBundle\LexikJWTAuthenticationBundle')) {
            $collection->addBundle(new \Lexik\Bundle\JWTAuthenticationBundle\LexikJWTAuthenticationBundle());

        if (class_exists('\Gfreeau\Bundle\GetJWTBundle\GfreeauGetJWTBundle')) {
            $collection->addBundle(new \Gfreeau\Bundle\GetJWTBundle\GfreeauGetJWTBundle());

        if (class_exists('\Nelmio\CorsBundle\NelmioCorsBundle')) {
            $collection->addBundle(new Nelmio\CorsBundle\NelmioCorsBundle());

        if (class_exists('Gesdinet\JWTRefreshTokenBundle\GesdinetJWTRefreshTokenBundle')) {
            $collection->addBundle(new \Gesdinet\JWTRefreshTokenBundle\GesdinetJWTRefreshTokenBundle());

Configure ES connection

In app/config/config.yml of Your Pimcore instance add this ElasticSearch configuration:

                index_name: vue_storefront_catalog
                    - es1:9200
                - CoreShop2VueStorefrontBundle

Update database schema

Please execute the schema update php bin/console doctrine:schema:update --force

JWT Configuration

  1. Inside root pimcore directory run these commands:

    mkdir -p config/jwt
    openssl genrsa -out config/jwt/private.pem -aes256 4096
    openssl rsa -pubout -in config/jwt/private.pem -out config/jwt/public.pem
  2. In the main config file - app/config/config.yml please do add the following section:

    secret_key: '%kernel.project_dir%/config/jwt/private.pem'
    public_key: '%kernel.project_dir%/config/jwt/public.pem' 
    pass_phrase: 'enterYourPhrase' 
    token_ttl:  3600
            enabled: true
            prefix:  Bearer
            name:    Authorization
            enabled: true
            name: token

Vue Storefront Configuration

After successfull Pimcore bundle installation Your Pimcore instance will be handling all the dynamic requests from Vue Storefront. Thereof You need to modify vue-storefront/config/local.json (assuming that Your Pimcore base URL is https://vuestorefrontcoreshop.localhost and ElasticSearch running on)

Note: As the Vue Storefront will be connecting to ElasticSearch from the client's browser You probably should put some kind of Proxy in front of ElasticSearch for scalability and security reasons. Please consider using the [vue-storefront-api](). It's endpoint /api/catalog works as a ElasticSearch HTTP(s) proxy. You can achieve the same results using nginx either Varnish.

Data formats and architecture

As Pimcore is a very extensible Framework, the data structures and format may vary. By default we do support official CoreShop data structures. For demonstration purposes we do support all the standard entities like:

  • set of required attributes,
  • categories,
  • products: localized attributes, single photo (can be easily extendend), variants, prices.

CoreShop integration architecture


Please visit Vue Storefront site to check out why it's so cool!

Admin panel integration
This is the standard Pimcore panel where You can edit Your products, categories and assets.

Category admin panel

Here is the order as it was transmited from Vue Storefront to CoreShop Order admin panel

All the products attributes, description, categories assets and other meta data is synchronized with Vue Storefront in real time The frontend integration
