open cart and yii
Posted 12 January 2010 - 09:17 AM
- open cart is in MVC, and is very simple written, but im not a pro php coder and i cant decide, is better stay with his oryginal core, and extend it, or move it to yii.
- if i will move it to yii -> there will be any cons? (i.eg: on yii will be slower)

I'd like a Yii-based cart, but it's a big effort to rewrite a whole cart script.

Well, he could just write a Yii-based cart taking ideas from OpenCart without doing a 1:1 rewrite.
I did think about this but Yii is BSD while OpenCart is GPL so you couldn't use the wrapper into a not-GPL-compatible script if you use/link OpenCart code, the wrapper should use new code or just use the OpenCart database without using the OpenCart php code.
