I’m pinging the list to see if anyone is working on an open-source
e-commerce engine based on Rails yet - something like OSCommerice I
Anyone? Is there interest out there for such a thing?
I have such a product which has been extracted from real world code. It
currently runs 3 production rails sites in various shapes and forms,
implemented as a rails engine.
Basic feature list:
- A very basic CMS & blog
- Product & order management
- Online store
– Integration with Authorize.net & FedEx shipping (for rate
- Q&A / contact & FAQ management
- A fairly nice admin UI -
This product has been created from contracts I’ve had over the last 6-8
months. I’ve never managed an open source project before, and wondering
big of a time commitment it might be.
I’m a freelancer who runs a two-man web shop…so I’m looking to enhance
product with a little bit of help if possible and perhaps bring in some
business selling commercial support & customizations.
Any feedback or comments on taking on such a challenge would be welcome.
