thirty bees is a matured e-commerce solution which once started as a fork of PrestaShop 126.96.36.199 and is still compatible with (almost) all PS 1.6 modules. Its focus is on stability, correctness and reliability of the rich feature set, to allow merchants to focus on growing their business.
thirty bees is commited to being free and open source. We are also committed to making all software that thirty bees develops free and open source. For that reason we have setup a Patreon page so our community can help support us. You can view our current list of supporters here which will be shipped with all thirty bees versions moving forward.
- Remove really old code. Like retrocompatibility code for PS 1.4 and older.
- Allow Core Updater to update to latest changes in the Github repository. Then one will be able to update a shop minutes after a bug got fixed.
- Extend Core Updater to also upgrade the database. This will bring additional reliability to the shop database as well.
- Remove pointless configuration switches in back office. Quite a number of them are outdated or useless, just distracting merchants and slowing down operations.
- Support for multiple encryption algorithms. One reliable encryption is entirely sufficient.
- Support for mixed HTTP/HTTPS sites. This was a good idea in 2005, but triggers browser warnings today.
- Bring all modules provided by thirty bees to the standards level of default modules.
- Bootstrap 4 for back office.
- Goal for thirty bees 1.2.0: Zero Known Bugs.
Support for these general requirements (except recommendations) gets tested during installation, so one can simply try to proceed. A proceeding installation means all requirements are met.
