  • Magento Ecommerce is just at the preview state but they are look very promising. It’s worth to take a look at their site www.magentocommerce.com. I’m not sure if we can build a bridge between these 2 great tools. Thanks.
    • @Ryan: I see you moved this thread due to the discussion that has ensued. Perhaps my choice to title the topic as I did, and post it in flaim-bait was short sighted and shows my inexperience with contributing to the forums. Maybe it needs a more relevant and helpful title now that it’s in this new subforum?

      • LOL ... I like the title actually. smiley

        But if you want to update it feel free, or if it won’t let you pass along the title you’d like to see.

        • how about "Nothing is impossible in MODx" ?

          • I like it, it’s provocative!!! I think that as a result of this post you have triggered a huge amount of development in e-commerce for MODx. It could be a coincidence, but it is inspiring to see so much movement in this direction.

            • Like Ryan mentioned, FoxyCart was built to be more of a "backend" or "framework" than a "system". We’re not 100% there yet, but we’re looking at adding some functionality to develop your own shipping and payment gateways, which, paired with the XML datafeed and JSON cart object... hopefully it’s flexible enough for at least 25% of the businesses out there.

              • Well, I worked with CubeCart for a while, and every single site required serious modification. In fact, the busiest part of the CubeCart forums is for the patches and hacks ("mods") that people have made and contribute back to the community, some free, some for purchase. I even did one or two custom mods. But it’s a nightmare, because once you’ve added these "mods" to the core, you’ve lost your upgrade path. The best you can do is keep a record of what mods you added, and then add them again to the upgrade... provided they’ll still work on the upgrade!

                  I’m migrating an osCommerce site and a CubeCart site to SHOPx the beginning of next year. Both of them are in the same quandary that you describe: tons of necessary customization to the core core has made it impossible to upgrade them (and it wouldn’t be worth the enormous time and effort to upgrade and redo all those changes and mods). The biggest advantage of MODx is its modularity, which pretty much keeps this sort of thing from ever happening.

                  • Indeed, that’s what I had in mind when I tried to develop ShopX. Everything modular, everything plugged in, so that all you have to customize is the snippets involved.
