Over the past years it has become more and more important to build systems and utilities that work with multiple frameworks. With the help of Darko Poposki I have spent a year testing out my architecture ideas in projects (sadly covered by NDAs) but now we are venturing into the public space.
The idea came to us to have a utility that can import and export entities into a common format. Because what really is a page, product or user?
We came up with the idea of having one central module that contains interfaces to define the generic service layer and then building a bridge for each framework's implementation.
For the first iteration we have build a way to import and export basic pages into and from a JSON file using a serializer. At the time of writing this is a very small set of features but with the focus being on extend-ability..
So this is it:
Some interesting facts overall it took us 15 hours to build and once we have the generic module and Magento2 module it took 10 minutes to build the Magento1 bridge.
As developers we are all stubborn and think we know best. Myself and Sander are no exception so we asked ourselves "How would we build a system to give you the freedom of your side projects but the power of a big ecommerce system".
At first it was a proof of concept for Moltin (a fully api based commerce system) but over time while working on the system we thought why not make it much more. The aim is to have a framework that you control and simply plugin a bridge to the API based ecommerce system of your choice.
We do not fully know where this roller coaster will take us but are happy to be on it!
Built a custom product type that allows the consumer to select and configure a different customizable product
The site is built on Magento 1. It was so unstable it was down at least once per week. During the project the dev and test environment were implemented. A bunch of extension were fixed to stop using core files. A new extension for importing data was customized and implemented. Fixes to the theme were added. New custom extensions were also build. An multichannel export/import option was added. That meant coordination with the whole ArrowDirect Team.
It is an ongoing project. We are migrating from Shoppify to Magento2 Platform. The project includes: redesign the theme, redesign the catalog, all products info, how the customers are going to be handled. Consume 3rd party services. So far...
TakoLako.com is one of Serbia's most ambitious web shops as it's backed up by the biggest supplier in Serbian market. My job was to establish the web shop and set up a good basis for future work. This included 3rd party software integrations and different kinds of customizations.
