A RESTful e-commerce framework based on Django
Version 0.10 of django-SHOP is heading towards API stability. Before upgrading to this version please read carfully the Changelog, as the API has been simplified and now is much more generic than in version 0.9.
Please get in touch with us on Gitter, if you have problems to upgrade your 0.9 projects. This will help us to adopt the migration path.
The core developer of django-SHOP, will be at PyCon Web 2017 from May 27th to 28th, in Munich, Germany. If you want to get in touch, please contact me on Gitter or Twitter.
Running the demo projects
To get a first impression on django-SHOP, try out one of the six fully working demo projects.
Run the demo in a local virtualenv
Following the instructions docs/tutorial/intro.rst should create a running shop in minutes, prefilled with a dozen of products. You can even pay by credit card, if you apply for your own testing account at Stripe.
Run the demo using Docker
A faster alternative to run one of the demos of django-SHOP, is to use a prepared Docker container available on the Docker Hub. If you have a running docker-machine, download and start the demo using:
docker run --name demo-shop-i18n_polymorphic --env DJANGO_SHOP_TUTORIAL=i18n_polymorphic -p 9001:9001 awesto/demo-shop:latest
Then point a browser on the IP address of your docker machine onto port 9001. If unsure invoke docker-machine ip. This for instance could be http://192.168.99.100:9001/ . To access the backend, sign in with username admin and password secret. The first invocation may take a few minutes, since additional assets have to be downloaded and the supplied images have to be thumbnailed.
Current Status of Django-SHOP
This version of django-SHOP is currently used to implement real e-commerce sites. If you want to get involved in the development, please have a look at our documentation in docs/contributing.rst.
Django-SHOP aims to be a the easy, fun and fast shop counterpart to django-CMS.
Specifically, we aim at providing a clean, modular and Pythonic/Djangonic implementation of an e-commerce framework, that a moderately experienced Django developer should be able to pick up and run easily.
Whenever possible, extra features shall be added to third party libraries. This implies that django-SHOP aims to provide an API, which allows merchants to add every feature they desire.
