During the Technology Comparison Phase of the Program in week 1 of the month, Kandan compared various carts such as Magento, Zen Cart, OSCommerce and a custom cart that was built already by Auro Infotech.
During this proof of concept, Kandan showed how he took an existing shopping cart that was built using custom code. He replicated the exact design of this cart using Magento.
As a result of his work, we gathered an exact list of files that have to be modified to change the template of the default magento pages into any design of our choice. We will now be able to leverage this list of files and follow the exact steps he did on any new template designing project involving Magento.
In addition, when we presented his proof of concept to the clients who own this site, they jumped on it and asked us to make the magento based site live as soon as we can. We did the same in February itself.
You can see the old version of this site under Weavez Demo at Auro Cart Website.
The sample that Kandan did that was implemented live last month is available at Current Weavez Website.
