Headless Odoo Nextjs e-Commerce

Headless Odoo Nextjs e-Commerce: Build Scalable Stores for the Future

The landscape of e-commerce is constantly evolving. Businesses today require solutions that offer not only powerful features but also flexibility and scalability. Enter the exciting world of headless e-commerce, where the front-end presentation layer is decoupled from the back-end data source. This approach unlocks a treasure trove of benefits for businesses looking to build future-proof online stores.

Heliconia Solutions is proud to announce the development of a Headless Odoo Next.js e-commerce boilerplate. This initial version provides a robust foundation for businesses seeking to leverage the strengths of both Odoo and Next.js.


What is Headless Odoo e-Commerce?

In a traditional e-commerce setup, the front-end and back-end are tightly coupled. This can limit flexibility and make it difficult to make independent changes to either layer. Headless Odoo e-commerce breaks this barrier. Here's how it works:

  • Odoo as the Headless Backend:  Odoo, a renowned open-source ERP system, acts as the powerful back-end. It manages product information, inventory, customer data, and other crucial aspects of your online store.
  • Next.js as the Flexible Frontend:  Next.js, a popular React framework, serves as the front-end layer. It allows you to create a visually appealing and user-friendly online store with features like server-side rendering (SSR) and static site generation (SSG) for lightning-fast performance and SEO benefits.
  • GraphQL API for Seamless Data Flow:  The magic lies in the communication between these two layers. Our boilerplate utilizes Odoo's GraphQL API to establish a smooth flow of data. This API allows the Next.js frontend to efficiently retrieve product details, customer information, and other essential data from the Odoo backend.
