Backend and Frontend Shop Catalogue for PadLoper

Recommended Posts

Hi all. For a while now been wondering how many would be interested in a backend and frontend shop catalogue built on top of PadLoper? I've previously spoken to @apeisa about this and his take is that there are no plans to develop PadLoper in this direction but he's happy to support such efforts.

The gist of the backend shop catalogue is to provide one place (think ProcessModule) where you can manage your PadLoper products - add, edit, delete, track sales, etc without having to set up the underlying structure yourself. The frontend would be like a shop/webstore profile, a frontend cart basically, that's customisable. The shop would be 100% powered by PadLoper. This means that to use the 'shop catalogue' would require that PadLoper is installed.

These are just loose ideas at the moment for a pro module. This might or might not see the light of day depending on feedback. Anyway, would love to hear thoughts, thanks.

Hi Kongondo,

I'm interested, although I have not used PadLoper yet, I might  want to use it when time comes to get rid of any of "my Woo shops". Not in the near future though.

May be starting with something small

like a subscription service.

Then making things a little more complex
like a T shirt shop.

Then a more complex one with features similar to woocommerce
or something like that.

I think is a wonderful idea. :)

Just do it Kongondo!

I would have bought it directly. It would have saved me a lot of time for the project I'm going to work.

That is a super idea Kongondo! I hope you find the time to do it.

Padloper is great, but like Ryan, is taking time to develop the new PW themes.  If there were premium modules, a default theme, a customer area, that would probably boost padlopers sales.

the new PW themes

@kongondo That reminds me: maybe you also want to go the "markup regions + UIkit" way so that it will be customizable in ways that are already documented and quite powerful.

I hope you seriously get this working.  I would gladly support a commercial module with the feature set listed.  Good luck, as always.

Sounds really good. Would happily purchase. The backend being pre-done is much more interesting to me than the having a front end template.

This is now going to happen as part of Padloper itself! :-). Cross-referencing with the relevant thread.

      Hi, 
      We build our first PW module, so don't hesitate to share your feedback!
      https://github.com/Typografics/PaymentMollie-PW3
      We developed this payment module for our fundraiser webshop: https://shop.typografics.be/.
      Here you can read the whole story.
      Enjoy the weekend!

      Each year we cycle 1000km with our company to fight against cancer. To participate with 4 teams we have to collect 20.000 euros.
      Our graphic designers made some goodies en we also organise a spaghetti fundraiser. To help the sales we decided to make a webshop with our webteam. And of course we used our favourite CMS for the job! 🙂
      https://shop.typografics.be/
      At this moment we raised more than 20.000 euros, so all our teams can participate. This is a very special project for us, unfortunately one of our colleagues has been diagnosed with cancer and currently is fighting against this terrible disease. 
      Premium PW modules used in this project:
      PadLoper
      FormBuilder
      ProFields
      Variations
      With a few hooks here and there we managed to make it work. To handle the payments we made use of Mollie, we created our own payment module and will opensource this soon.
      You can read more about this project in our blog (in dutch) 
      Unfortunately we're currently only shipping to Belgium
      We’re already brainstorming to make a 2.0 version of this webshop, so all your feedback is more than welcome.

      Hello, I want to develop an eshop with processwire + padloper + any needed module (ex. ProCache n stuff).
      Right now, the eshop is in CS-Cart and I hate it. Will pw be able to support "proper" eshop features such as some simple sales graphs, 1k+ products, shipping methods & costs, user registration, search history, order status, payment status (for bank transfers for example) etc.
      For example I'm thinking that products and orders as sub-pages will be problematic (10k+ sub-pages)
      I also want to know if it's actually worth it or if it would be better to move to a bigger platform which has some of these features out of the box.
      Currently, the problem with CS-Cart is major lack of documentation which limits me in writing custom features (connection with shipping providers, export of data via CardDAV and more). Also CS-Cart is too complex to handle without documentation. I can manage and understand the code of PW but CS-Cart is just too big.

      Of course the server is beefy enough to handle things even heavier than CS-Cart. My focus is on development process and workflow (I've already set up CD from github to a docker container for a small website)
       
      EDIT: Sylius and Thelia2 really caught my eye. Comments on them will be appreciated

      Variations
      Released 29 May 2017
      Variations is a simple yet powerful commercial ProcessWire module that allows website editors to create attributes and their values and from those generate variations of any entity, most notably products.
      The module consists of  FieldtypeVariations and InputfieldVariations as well as a ProcessVariations for managing variations configurations and attributes.   Setting up the field is quite easy.   First, create a field of type Variations. Define some custom inputs that will need to be directly edited on the page containing the field, for instance a product price, SKU, etc.   Secondly, via the Inputfield, create a couple of attributes.   Thirdly, create a variations configuration and add the attributes and values you want in the configuration. Link that variations configuration to your page and the module will automatically generate all possible combinations (variations) of the attribute values in that configuration. These, together with the custom inputs you created when setting up the field will be displayed on the page (e.g. a product page), ready for editing. This makes this module quite unique; variations are defined at the page-level rather than at the field level. This presents lots of possibilities such as infinitely reusable attributes and variations configurations.    For those using Padloper, integration with the e-commerce platform is quite simple as demonstrated in this tutorial.  The module consists of 4 modules
      ProcessVariations FieldtypeVariations InputfieldVariations VariationsCustomTableManager (autoload module, working behind the scenes) Video Demo: https://youtu.be/T93nn96UL8o
      Documentation: https://variations.kongondo.com/
      Shop: https://processwireshop.pw/plugins/variations/
      Requires: ProcessWire 2.5 or newer
      Features
      Easily create variations of anything, including products for e-commerce websites, etc Create an attribute once, use it everywhere, multiple times, picking and choosing all or only the attribute values you want Bulk editing of variations configurations and attributes Reusable variations configurations Works with Padloper out-of-the-box with minimal coding User-friendly, intuitive and easy to set up

      Hi there,
      I was looking for some Processwire + Amazon integration advice. I've never built an e-commerce platform before and surprisingly there's hardly any articles or forum posts when you type in variation searches of "Amazon + Processwire"

      Are there any 3rd party tools and services you recommend?
      Any gotchas I should be aware of ?

      Thanks in advance!
