Openui5 + Heroku + Mailgun + Google Spreadsheet + Dropbox = the whole package = a simple yet robust e-commerce solution
Ever since I encountered Openui5, this awesome front-end framework, I’ve been thinking, how could I introduce it to more people, how about an end to end real-life application? Not only showcase the goodies of the framework, but show people how easy it is to work with a back-end database, to deploy, and to add common features like sending emails, make it the whole package.
So here it is, the Openui5 demo app – shopping cart on steroids 🙂
- Hosted by Heroku, which connects with my Github repo (automatic deploy).
- Outgoing emails service is provided by Mailgun. Their free plan allows us to send out 400 mails each day.
- Images hosted using Dropbox.
- And the best is that it uses Google spreadsheet as the database (I had a reusable Openui5 module written for this task), which makes it super easy to manage the back-end data, and robust as hell.
I’ll go out and say this is the perfect e-commerce solution for mamas and papas stores, give me five ^__^
Actually I’m fairly new to programming, you could for sure sniff some code smells here and there, but it does not keep me from solving problem programmatically and contributing, cheers.
