The headless approach was hailed as an innovative approach to better integrate Shopware in modern e-commerce.

An essential part of this approach is at least the provision of a running PWA stack. Although there are teams working on PWA, it does not feel like it is part of a holistic and company-wide priority. From basics like incomplete translations to incompatible custom Shopware plugins, there is still a lot to do. Due to the lack of widespread support, agencies have to rely on solving many problems themselves, which causes high costs.

For smaller projects and especially when time to market is an important factor, PWA does not remain the favoured option at the moment.
