I would like to ask about the plans of Frappe Team regarding the future technology for ERPNext frontend.
Before you tell me to go to discuss.frappe.io, it has been offline for weeks. Also, my question is very much related to ERPNext as well.
I checked out FrappeJS with its Vue based frontend, and I like it very much. I also noticed in Frappe Framework that there are already some Vue based components used.
Are there plans to incrementally transition Frappe Framework frontend (both the Desk and the “regular” Website part) to Vue?
I am asking about this for a couple of reasons:
- First, I would actually like this very much. I think Vue is a great framework, and it already has shown its potential with FrappeJS.
- I am actually planning to create an alternative web frontend for ERPNext based on Vue Storefront Next (https://docs-next.vuestorefront.io/), Nuxt and a visual page builder (still evaluating options here, e.g. https://www.baianat.com/opensource/vuse, https://vuegg.github.io/ or https://github.com/fireyy/vue-page-designer). The backend would be of course standard ERPNext with the page builder integrated into the Desk UI.
It would be great to know that this technology stack will be compatible (and easy to integrate) with the Frappe Framework and ERPNext in the future. I would even be interested in submitting this frontend to ERPNext for inclusion in the base product.
I am looking forward to any comments, especially from the Frappe Team.
