Domain-driven e-commerce for Django
Oscar is an e-commerce framework for Django designed for building domain-driven sites. It is structured such that any part of the core functionality can be customised to suit the needs of your project. This allows a wide range of e-commerce requirements to be handled, from large-scale B2C sites to complex B2B sites rich in domain-specific business logic.

Continuous integration status:
These are a few screenshots from the 'sandbox' example site that ships with Oscar. It sports a simple design built with Twitter's Bootstrap. It provides a good starting point for quickly building elegant e-commerce sites.
You can have this sample shop running on your machine in 5 commands:
$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:tangentlabs/django-oscar.git $ cd django-oscar $ mkvirtualenv oscar $ make sandbox $ sites/sandbox/manage.py runserver
The sandbox site (initialised with a sample set of products) will be available at: http://localhost:8000. A sample superuser is installed with credentials:
username: superuser email: email@example.com password: testing
