Spree commerce (or other open source ruby shopping carts)

Hi All,

Has anyone used spree commerce as an e-commerce system? Is it production
ready? Easy to customize? Are there other ruby-based platforms out
there?

I’m currently looking at options for an e-commerce system for a venture
my
company is starting and we’re deciding whether to use existing
open-source
solutions, proprietary software, or to just roll our own. Any insight
would
be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Mike

Haven’t used spree.

We use active merchant + paypal, but it is not a very big part of our
site -
it works and we leave it alone.
Not sure what you are doing, but shopify might be an option as well.

Cheers,

Andrew K.

I like to deploy the Spreecommerce locally and want to implement my own
changes. I have deployed successfully but I don’t know where the actual
sources files comes or running. I need help to sort this out. Please can
any one help me.

Thanks in Advance

The source files are coming from the spree gem, which is a Rails Engine
(in
short, a Rails Engine has all the architecture and code to function as
an
full Rails app, but treats your Rails app as the main app and itself as
a
secondary/auxilliary app). You can look at specific spree files
whereever
you install your gems locally as well as here,
https://github.com/spree/spree.

In terms of overriding Spree, check out these links,

Spree has nice architecture and logic with extensions, but currently
it has many bugs. It is in version 0.10… I was impressed by his
architecture but dissapointed by the bugs :(. I started to fix them,
it wasn’t difficult to fix what bug I found but I was thinking if it
has so many bugs now that I started, what I will find out later so I
decided to go with a custom eshop (and when rails 3.0 comes out, make
it rails 3 and give it open source… but it is very simple in
comparison with spree).
