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
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").
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
