Aimeos Laravel based ecommerce web application with an unbeatable performance for a mattresses manufacturing company!

The brief

The mattress company was looking for an ecommerce web application to sell their mattresses of distinct varieties. Their target audience is vast, so they wanted a multilingual (i18) application with multiple currency features.

The client wanted to give their customers multiple payment options. They have used the payment gateway Redsys; so that their customers can easily buy the products from various categories. The web application required to have a customer dashboard, thereby, their customers can manage their orders and subscriptions. The client also asked for a Doofinder search in the ecommerce web application to make the product, category, price, etc. search seamless for their customers.

The requirement includes blog functionalities and customized store functionalities as well. Moreover, the client wanted us to create a web application with a location finder option for customers to find physical nearby store from the store section. We were supposed to create a responsive web application. And last but not the least, the company desired to manage every functionality of the application from Aimeos customized backoffice section.

The challenges

  • The client wanted a pixel-to-pixel responsive design for the application using Aimeos own structure.
  • Customization and integration of Aimeos default codes as per client requirements.
  • Integration of Doofinder search with Aimeos.
  • Customization of Aimeos backend which is based on Vue.js.
  • Data migration from the client’s existing website, of which data structure was entirely different.
  • Translation of multiple languages because Aimeos has its .po extension.
  • Minimizing the loading time of Web applications.
  • Spain-based payment gateway Redsys’ integration with Aimeos.
  • Customizing comment sections wherever required.
  • GrapesJS integration with Aimeos to maintain the CMS pages.

Ecommerce web application development

  • Bootstrap with SaaS (Software as a Service) for designing
  • JavaScript, jQuery, jQuery UI, Vue.js, GrapesJS

The solutions

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.
  • Aimeos CMS uses GrapesJS which is complicated for the client to use. Therefore, we integrated some dynamic sections using JavaScript customized codes from GrapesJS. This made it easier for the client to adjust the CMS pages as per their requirements by only using drag and drop.
  • We have customized every section in a way that they can be integrated with all the modules.
