TravisCI build badge for PrestaCollege


A Prestashop module for use in school classrooms. This module is one of the results of the project Fit for E-Commerce which is co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.


PrestaCollege lets you:

  • export and import database and file snapshots of shops which can be easily distributed to student's shops
  • create fake data for your shop


  1. You need a working Prestashop installation.
  2. Download the latest PrestaCollege release. Make sure to download the file!
  3. In the Prestashop backend go to the module manager and click 'Upload module'. Drag and drop the file onto the dialogue. Screenshot add module Screenshot upload module
  4. The module should automatically be installed. If the installation fails make sure that your php.ini values for upload_max_filesize and post_max_size are set to a larger value than the size of the file. I would recommend to set the values to 128M - this should also be sufficient for file snapshots.


Create Snapshots

  • Implement Snapshot process
    • Add a version check if the database scheme of an export matches the installed version
    • Add an option to include/leave out specific tables
    • Export relevant database tables
    • Export relevant asset folders ('/img', '/modules') as zip
    • Import database tables from .sql file
    • Import asset folders from zip file
    • Upload snapshots from remote URL to server
    • Download existing snapshots from the server to your PC
    • Upload snapshot files from your PC to the server
    • Delete a snapshot from the server via the web interface
  • add German localization
  • add a popup/banner to avoid real customers from ordering

Fake stuff

  • fake customers
  • fake guests and customer visits (i.e. connections)
  • fake orders by customers
  • fake orphaned carts
  • fake a hacker attack
  • fake search terms
