Version 0.9 of django-SHOP is a complete rewrite of the old code base but keeps the concepts of model overriding and cart modifiers. Therefore with some effort, it should be possible to migrate existing projects to this new release. Please contact me, if you need help.
The core developer of django-SHOP, will at Django under the Hood from November 3rd to 6th, in Amsterdam. If you want to get in touch, please contact me on Twitter:
Running the demo projects
To get a first impression on django-SHOP, try out the three full working demo projects.
And remember, I'm always happy to get some feedback on how it works elsewhere.
Run the demo in a local virtualenv
Following the instructions
should create a running shop in minutes, prefilled with a dozen of products.
You can even pay by credit card, if you apply for your own testing account at Stripe.
Run the demo using Docker
A faster alternative to run the "polymorphic" demo of django-SHOP is to use a prepared Docker container available on the Docker Hub. If you have a running docker-machine, download and start the demo using:
docker run -p 9001:9001 --rm awesto/demo-shop-polymorphic:latest
Then point a browser on the IP address of your docker machine onto port 9001. If unsure invoke
docker-machine ip. This could for instance be http://192.168.99.100:9001/ .
To access the backend sign in with username admin and password secret. The first invocation
of each page takes some time, since beforehand the supplied images have to be thumbnailed.
Current Status of Django-SHOP
This version of django-SHOP is currently used to implement real e-commerce sites. If you want
to help out, please have a look at our development documentation in
Django-SHOP aims to be a the easy, fun and fast shop counterpart to django CMS.
Specifically, we aim at providing a clean, modular and Pythonic/Djangonic implementation of a shop framework, that a moderately experienced Django programmer should be able to pick up and run easily.
In order to build better demo sites, we need good pictures together with some introductory text for arbitrary products. Both, pictures and text must be free of copyright or under an open license (CC-by-SA, or similar). If you can provide these assets, please get in touch with Jacob Rief or René Fleschenberg by email.
We also need ...
- more tests.
- translations into other natural languages.
- a native English speaker to check the documentation.
