eCommWar.com, a leaderboard of top open-source e-commerce platforms.


Missing an e-commerce platform here? Just fork the repo and add your platform as a <name>.md in the source/projects folder.

Make sure to follow the following rules:

  • Open Source: The platform must have a public repository on Github that we can link to and pull in stats from.
  • Stick to the format: Fill out all the same fields as the other e-commerce platforms in source/projects.
  • Short description: Keep all the details for the body text, keep the description for the overview page short and sweet.

Running locally

eCommWar is built with Middleman. To install and run locally:

git clone https://github.com/ecommwar/ecommwar.git
cd ecommwar
bundle install (requires ruby 2.1.2 to work w/o errors)
bundle exec middleman

You'll run into GitHub's API limits very quickly if you just do this. To avoid this we recommend you create a Github API token with permissions to access public repositories and Gist.

Then create a Gist with a single file data.json with an empty javascript object literal as content: {}

Then set these environment variables before running middleman:


Then middleman will use the Gist you specified to archive stats (stars, forks and issues) for the repositories.
