The Aimeos community released the first stable version of their Open Source web shop for the Symfony PHP framework.
Online PR News – 13-March-2015 – – The new shop bundle enables software developers to integrate e-commerce functionality into their applications immediately. Pre-configured pages and a complete demo data set reduces the time to the first working shop down to a few minutes, increasing productivity.
Strong attention has been laid on creating a high-performance shop bundle that scales up to 100 000+ products on a standard Linux/Apache/MySQL/PHP stack. With additional software such as ElasticSearch, several million products per installation are possible without performance loss and in optimized server setups, response times down to 40ms have been measured.
Usability is one of the key success factors of online shops today. Continuous testing and improvements of the user experience has ensured best results for the Aimeos "elegance" theme. Developers creating new themes are also able to completely rework the front-end by adding, removing or reordering all aspects only via configuration settings.
