Broadleaf Commerce, an Inc. 5000 enterprise eCommerce platform provider for custom commerce solutions, will discuss using Broadleaf Commerce APIs and provide a first look at the new Broadleaf React Starter during a live web event on September 20. Led by Broadleaf Senior Software Engineer Nick Crum, “API Commerce: Broadleaf Commerce and React” will explore leveraging Broadleaf’s API with modern JavaScript frameworks like React.

The web event will provide an in-depth look at Broadleaf Commerce APIs, including:

  • Broadleaf’s API Module Overview
  • Introduction to Broadleaf’s React Starter
  • Live Demo of the React Starter
  • Live Q&A with Broadleaf Senior Software Engineer Nick Crum

The React Starter illustrates using Broadleaf’s API layer to build a single-page eCommerce application with an enhanced user experience. The Starter demo utilizes notable front-end libraries React, React Router, and Redux for the client-side application. Primary benefits of using Broadleaf APIs with React include site performance increases, fast and responsive user interfaces, and a superior front-end development experience.

“Broadleaf features an extensible API that can be used to create compelling eCommerce single-page applications,” stated Nick Crum, Senior Software Engineer at Broadleaf Commerce. “In the past we have focused on a more traditional multi-page application using Spring MVC and Thymeleaf for our demos, now we have the opportunity to leverage this new wave of front-end technologies, showing off the flexibility of Broadleaf’s robust API layer.”
