  11. Have you heard about this new tool/ methodology called ABC?

    Yeah, I wish I could use it in my XYZ project, but it is not compatible or used.
  12. ? What is the answer?

  13. Sylius Modern e-commerce for Symfony2

  14. What is sylius • E-Commerce framework for PHP • Set

    of bundles for Symfony2 • Platform based on Symfony2
  15. e-commerce framework for php • Collection of decoupled components •

    Usable with any PHP project • Common E-Commerce patterns and domain models implemented in „raw” PHP code • Loosely integrated with other libraries
  16. Set of bundles for symfony2 • Standalone Symfony2 bundles •

    Every E-Commerce feature lives in a separate package available through Composer • Can be integrated into existing application • Bundles as integration layers for Symfony
  17. e-commerce symfony2 app • Online-selling platform • Can be used

    as a base for project or „as is” • Integration with other Symfony2 app is possible and easy • Consists of two main bundles containing Core and Web interface
  18. ? How does it look?

  19. administration interface

  20. Work in progress

  21. ? What can you build using Sylius?

  22. sommelier-prive.de

  23. colorscience.com

  24. artlantis.com

  25. ? What makes Sylius different?

  26. PROPER OBJECT ORIENTED PHP • No singletons and static access

    all over the place • Testable code • Lack of magic • DependencyInjection and many other design patterns
  27. vendors managed using composer • All Sylius components, bundles and

    distributions are available through Composer • Sylius uses Composer to manage its dependencies • No NIH allowed • A lot of community libraries
  28. Symfony as framework • Sylius, just like eZ Publish, is

    built on top of full- stack Symfony2 • Based on Standard Edition, should be familiar for any Symfony developer • Does not reinvent the wheel and shares part of community
  29. Doctrine as orm • No ActiveRecord • Fully featured ORM

    as the foundation for data storage • Whole data persistence hidden behind elegant interfaces • Potentially supports MongoDB and other platforms
  30. Behavior DRIVEN DEVELOPMENT • StoryBDD with Behat maintains high level

    of communication quality among the community • We communicate using examples • Behat scenarios are executed as acceptance tests automatically on every change • SpecBDD using phpspec punishes us for any bad design decision • CodeQuality
  31. Feature descriptions

  32. Executed on travis-ci.org

  33. Code quality

  34. Compared to „old” solutions

  35. ? How to get started?

  36. Require a single component $ composer require sylius/product:v0.10.0 <?php !

    $product = new Product(); ! $product ->setName(’T-Shirt’) ->setDescription(’Really cool t-shirt’) ;
  37. Install symfony2 bundle $ composer require sylius/cart-bundle:v0.10.0 <?php ! class

    FooController extends Controller { public function barAction() { $cart = $this->get(’sylius.cart_provider’)->getCart(); } } And follow the installation instructions from the documentation

    cd sylius $ app/console sylius:install
  40. components and bundles

  41. Resource Layer • Lives on top of Doctrine • Extends

    and uses Doctrine Common Persistence interfaces • Contains basic interfaces, like TimestampableInterface, SoftDeleteableInterface etc. • Integrated through SyliusResourceBundle
  42. Products Attributes and variations Options and Variants • Component and

    bundle for common entity Attributes handling • Processing of object variations using options • Product integrates both Attributes and Variants
  43. Orders and Carts Sales and Shopping Cart • Cart is

    an Order with appropriate state „checkout” • Support of Adjustments for discounts and fees • Order items can contain any type of object or plain text, quantity and price
  44. Other components and bundles We have few of them •

    Taxation with categorization and different calculators support • Complex shipping management with different shipping methods and cost calculators • Inventory tracking with backorders support • Promotions system with coupons, actions and custom rules support • Addresses management with geographical zones for precise shipping and taxation rates • Payum integration for payments
  45. Okay, a bit more than „few” More fun • Workflows,

    checkouts, installation wizards and multistep actions • Pricing component with customizable price calculators (volume, regional, per custom group etc.) • Settings system for easy configuration via GUI • Taxonomies for categorization of products • Theming, Plugins, Reviews, Subscriptions, Multi-Channel (coming soon)
  46. What about content management? Symfony CMF Integration • Very basic

    integration with the CMF • Simple content types and blocks • Big plans to take this integration even further
