Open Source: The Intershop Progressive Web App is Free for Community Development

  • Project live on GitHub
  • Angular-based Progressive Web App storefront

Jena, Germany, December 02, 2019 – On GitHub, over 40 million developers work together to host and review code, manage projects, and build software together. Since November 14, 2019, the Angular-based PWA storefront for the Intershop Commerce Suite is freely available for further use and development by every member of GitHub.

In order to work with the project, our developers created quick start notes, as well as in-depth information on customizations, the development server, deployment procedures and other technological specifications. Additionally, we provide templates for Kubernetes Deployments and DevOps for Microsoft Azure.

Jochen Wiechen, CEO of Intershop: “There are many ways to further expanding features, performance and benefits of software via the open source community. People can contribute to the project without even being a software developer. Improving the documentation or analyzing an issue that occurred can be part of that, for example. Our Progressive Web App is now part of the open source universe. We are looking forward to exciting community commits.”
