Build an e-commerce platform together with a cuffilinks and ring configurator for a ambitious Germany-based client wanting to develop a place for diverse range of customizeable products. Also platform should accommodate a Suits configurator - already developed by third party provider and interconnect with it.
Having the completed suits configurator already fully developed in CakePHP I chose to use Wordpress Woocommerce to wrap around it and use its numerous features as translations, SEO optimization tools, social tools and payment gateways. Combining CakePHP and Wordpress is a tricky task ,but as it was absolutely needed I was able to use the Cake solution as a separate app which to communicate with Wordpress via ajax calls. Wordpress theme was totally customized in order to fit the needs and requirements of the client. <br><br> Development of the two new configurators was done from scratch in the form of a Wordpress plugin using PHP, HTML5, jQuery and AJAX. both configurators have a back-end administrative panel to control the prices, promotions and item configurations.
