The Journey to CoCart
This project is the result of three years and more spent working hand-in-hand with web developers and WooCommerce developers and the lessons learned along the way.
CoCart started out as an experiment to read the cart data via the REST API as it was not part of the native official WooCommerce REST API. After releasing an MVP of the API, developers responded and saw not only the potential but the opportunity in creating faster headless stores.
While getting so much feedback since the initial release, research had begun to make CoCart much more stable and ready for production.
It has since gained much popularity as sites are now forced to be faster in order to remain in decent rankings with their SEO when searched for in Google.
Store sales have increased considerably since the first quarter of 2020 so having a store that can handle the additional traffic while remaining fast at all times has been a top priority.
CoCart’s mission is to provide the most viable Restful API solution for all developers around the world. We’re here to provide all the features you need to developing your headless store with an extendable and powerful Restful API that grants you the ability to use and build your headless store your way.
What We’re Innovating
With any modern framework such as React, Vue, Gatsby and many others, CoCart takes a serious amount of time and work out of the developers hands allowing them to get on with putting the site together much quicker however they like.
CoCart was built for the world’s largest open-source e-commerce platform, WooCommerce. By enabling the frontend of the store via the REST API, we’re making an impact on millions of businesses and consumers that wish to make their stores faster with today’s leading technology.
CoCart gives you the ability to fully customize the API by any means necessary while still keeping connected to original source data when needed. Our solution ensures the data and user flow of the API works perfectly wherever it’s implemented.
CoCart has a great community to help each other out and is constantly growing.
There you can ask for help, discuss ideas or provide feedback to help make CoCart much better for future updates.
