WORK IN PROGRESS!
CafePress Wrapper was built to create a portal for multiple CafePress basic stores. The intent is to create a fully fledged site where all product browsing and searching is done on the wrapper site, while selecting specific sizes/colors/etc, shopping cart functionality, and checkout is all done normally on cafepress.com
CafePress Wrapper is a Rails plugin distributed as a gem. Currently, there is a lot of code which is specific to rockclimbingshirts.com. I am in the process of removing this code and replacing it with generic stuff.
Runs great on Heroku.
Write setup howto
Remove rockclimbingshirts.com specific stuff and create generic pages
Create new rails project:
> rails new cpw_test … bunch of rails output … > cd cpw_test
Add the CafePress Wrapper gem by adding the following line to Gemfile
Install the gem
> bundle install … bunch of output, make sure you see Installing/Using cafepress_wrapper …
> rake db:create
> rake cafepress_wrapper:db:migrate … lots o' output …
Copy over static assets and config file
> rake cafepress_wrapper:install:all … list of files copied and where …
Remove default index.html
> rm public/index.html
Start rails server
> rails server
Open localhost:3000/ in your web browser
You should see a pretty blank page with just header/footer/menu
Add a basic cafepress store by store id (humancrashpad for this example)
> rake cafepress_wrapper:add_store[humancrashpad]
