To align with the company’s strategy, in the initial phase we considered the application’s flow and identification requirements and started accordingly. We followed the agile methodology for keeping the balance between changing requirements with time and rapid application deployment. We created a real-time collaboration with the internal teams and offered an amazing working environment using an effective tool Git.
- To create a responsive ecommerce web application, we used a CSS framework like Bootstrap and did testing on every device with different screen sizes and browsers to ensure the application’s responsiveness.
- By understanding Aimeos default structure and using Laravel with Aimeos, we customized the application as per the client’s requirements.
- Doofinder’s APIs are generally used in core PHP, we tried to set them as per Aimeos search functionalities.
- We built the Aimeos backoffice with Vue.js using Aimeos custom codes. Our team checked all the codes and implemented them in the required sections. Also, developed a new section in Aimeos backend.
- Aimeos data migration is based on cron jobs and because we had to follow Aimeos documentation, we made a script to import data like the product, category, price, orders, etc. from the existing website. We also provided the option to import CSV data with sample download functionalities.
- Aimeos uses the i18 translation method, but it does not have any backoffice section where the admin can translate the keywords. Thus, we developed a new translation section to manage the Aimeos default translation and where the admin can add new translation keywords. This translation section over-rights Aimeos’ .po functionalities and generates its own translation keywords file, which helps understanding the customer’s language by reading the keywords.
- For minimizing the loading time, we load one section at a time, wherein other sections wait at the backend, which ultimately reduces the loading time. Also, decreased the external js and CSS usage and they are allowed to load only if required.
- We have integrated with umpteen payment gateways like PayPal, Stripe, etc. because they have proper documentation, but Redsys was tough to integrate. To resolve this issue, we integrated it with the normal website in the first place and then converted it to Aimeos based integration.
- We have customized every section in a way that they can be integrated with all the modules.
