Building a ror store


#1

Hi, i’m starting to build a new store - app this week, and i was
wondering if someone knew of the best way to store cart sessions, and
all of the store-data i need to save up until a purchase… does anyone
know of some good way of implementing this? ( a link, or some resource
on the net )
i know the pragmatic programmers book has an example of building a
store, but i was wondering if there were some more well - known examples
of doing this?

any help or insights on building a store, will be kindly appreciated…
thanks in advance …
:slight_smile:

You might want to look at substruct, an RoR open source ecommerce
application. See how they handle the shopping cart, or just use their
app
as a base for yours.

Check out Ben’s e-commerce book. Not expensive, and has good
information on how to build a regular online store.

Thanks for the plug, but that’s not the URL…that actually goes to
some
ASP site throwing an error. :slight_smile:

http://dev.subimage.com/projects/substruct - for project information,
download, install instructions.

and the demo site…

http://substruct.subimage.com
http://substruct.subimage.com/admin (admin / admin is the login)

thanks all;

i actually posted this message yesterday, kept on searching the web, and
actually found substruct a short while after this post; downloaded and
installed it, before catching any replies on this thread :slight_smile: . anyway, i
caught the core of the store-app (all the relavant code i need to get my
own niche started) in railsapp/vendor/plugins/substruct/app. i’ll start
from there. interestingly enough, this substruct store is based on the
store that is designed in the Pragmatic Programmer’s book (Dave T.’)
– i recognize some of that code in the substruct application. it makes
it somewhat funner. :slight_smile:

anyway, thanks for all the help.
much appreciated…

Wow, that is a cool find. Looks like a great start on a basic
e-commerce site.

The Blog would be better if it had commenting capabilities and
syndication. And paypal for the checkout…but those both seem like
very straightforward things to add on.

Actually it’s not based on the code in the book…(was designed before
the
book), but there are some similarities. Glad you’re enjoying it.
