How does the Luma theme differ from the PWA Studio Storefront?
Unlike an Adobe Commerce or Magento Open Source theme, a storefront application does not inherit from a parent theme. Instead, the application is composed of React modules that provide different pieces of functionality. These pieces can be swapped out to change behavior or even removed entirely.
What are the known limitations of the PWA Studio Storefront?
Page Builder integration within PWA Studio only supports Adobe Commerce and Magento Open Source CMS Pages created with Page Builder. It does not support CMS Blocks, Product content, or Category content created with Page Builder. Staging and Preview are not supported.
