Based on modern tools such as Symfony2, Propel 2,PHPunit, Bootstrap 3 and Smarty 3, version 2 represents a major step forward for Thelia, both in terms of technological choices and the user experience.berryjam.ru
During the Paris e-commerce exhibition on 24th, 25th and 26th September 2013, Thelia’s team unveiled its technological choices and new functionalities of the application, which were also presented as part of the “Thelia 2, des choix technologiques innovants au service du e-commerce” conference on Wednesday 25th September.
Since 2005, Thelia’s team has been able to increase its business expertise by introducing its open source solution to hundreds of retail websites. 8 years of experience and development used to create a high-performance solution suited to retail requirements.
Thelia 2, an entirely reworked technical platform.
This new version is based on Symfony 2 components, with Propel 2 as ORM, together with PHPUnit and Travis for ongoing integration. Its REST API means that Thelia 2 interfaces very easily with existing retail tools.
Keenly anticipated by developers, this provides an alternative to existing solutions that have been unable to make the technological shift.
As for interfaces, front office and back office have been totally reworked: integrated to html 5 with Bootstrap 3, they have been optimized for tablets and mobiles. Using the Smarty template engine also facilitates their customization. Finally, microdata have also been used for the front office, in line with the semantic web.
As well as technical developments, Thelia 2 combines numerous functionalities that are most important for retailers, such as:
– advanced management of promotions and promotion rules
– a tax engine
– combining product ranges
– advanced statistics
– module auto-installer
The final version of Thelia 2 is planned for late 2013 and will be accompanied by various additional modules.
Thelia 2 beta version is on Github, and can be downloaded from the dedicated Thelia 2 website: thelia.net/v2
A front office demo is available at [demo-v2.thelia.net-> http://demo-v2.thelia.net]. The back office can be seen at: demo-v2.thelia.net/admin (login / password: thelia2 / thelia2)
