FRAMEWRK opensource e-commerce shopping cart.
What is it?
FRAMEWRK is an exciting new, free & opensource e-commerce development bringing together modern code, flexibility and proven functionality to the online merchant marketplace.
Powered by PHP 5.3.6 and Zend Framework
FRAMEWRK is in an early stage of development, no download or accessable repository is currently available.

Zend Framework provides the functionality behind the system. Zend Framework is a huge, extremely capable and complex framework allowing a simply staggering amount of tried and proven functionality available simply by calling a set of classes. It is constantly undergoing improvement and development by some of the foremost PHP experts.
About this site
Initially the front end of this site is non dynamic, it is our intention to add here a full CMS system and perhaps a forum. At this stage we are leaning towards a Drupal installation.
The html is separated from the logic code allowing for easy templating & design.
Templates themselves are separated by directory fascilitating "plug in" themes.
Merchants & Shop Owners
FRAMEWRK aims to be a fast, secure e-commerce platform supported by modern and robust code.
Initially it will offer an expected level of functionality expandable over time.
Internationalisation ( I18n )
Normalisation & Localisation support is supplied by the use of the excellent Zend Framework APIs.
Language support and string localisation utilises gettext, The ZF adapter for gettext is thread-safe whereas the PHP extension currently is not.
FRAMEWRK is powered by Zend Framework which offers a huge range of tried and trusted core functionality.
Functionality has, where possible been separated from the core code allowing for easy core upgrades. Adding functionality, again where possible, can often be achieved by adding a module or a single file rather than a change to existing logic.
We will not publish a roadmap at this stage but development is proceding swiftly and we don't expect much in the way of delay.
Our intention at this stage is for a first release to be front end only, where you would use an osCommerce 2.3.X admin as the back end.
