Hi

Perhaps this is not the best forum to post this in but I was not sure where to put it.
Has anyone ever looked at integrating SilverStripe with Prestashop for more advanced eCommerce.
They both seem to be fairly well aligned and a well designed bridge would allow both systems to focus on what they do best.
Perhaps this is not realistic but was just a thought I had as I just discovered Prestashop

Cheers

Hi there,

I haven't used Prestashop before, but after taking a quick look at it, there doesn't appear to be any APIs they offer with their ecommerce software. There's also no technical documentation (say's its "Coming soon").

What sort of integration were you after?

Cheers,
Sean

I would like to access the products/ categories etc as a data model from prestashop so I could build my main menu template etc in silverstripe, but perhaps have the category page and product detail pages, checkout etc embedded in iframe or something - ideally just like snippets that loaded content from prestashop (not quite sure the best way to go about that)

I guess where I am coming from is that my company created a site with Magento a while back and I was not that impressed with the templating system so I have been looking at Silverstripe. It seems awesome however the ecommerce module does not seem all that mature. Things like stock numbers etc. I am a developer so am considering working on a module and am just trying to figure out whether is better to try and improve silverstripe ecommerce module or think about better long term solution
