What is the need / problem
Some users, especially big ones, want to use OFN features but in their own independent (standalone) website, with their own brand, design and user journey. They want to stay connected with the global network, so they don’t want to make their own deployment, they want to be able to use a public already deployed OFN instance but access features in their own environment.
Who does it impact
Lots of users.
What is the current impact of this problem
Limit adoption of the OFN.
What is the benefit in focusing on this
Increase the user base.

Potential solutions that will solve this problem
- First feature candidate already implemented: embed shopfront / embed group, but it limits use of OFN features to only those two features in an external environment.
- Enforce a powerful API could be a second iteration.
