Aimeos e-commerce framework (sponsor)

Aimeos, the ultra-fast e-commerce package is the most popular open source e-commerce framework for Laravel according to GitHub. Some of its highlights are:

  • For shops from one to 1 billion items that respond in 100ms
  • Multi-vendor, multi-channel and multi warehouse capable
  • Incl. bundles, vouchers, virtual, configurable and custom products
  • Every product can be a subscription with recurring payment
  • Support for 100+ payment gateways via Omnipay PHP library
  • JSON REST API based on jsonapi.org standard

Strength

The particular strength of Aimeos is its flexibility, so you can adapt and dynamically extend every functionality. This enables you to build online shops, complex B2B e-commerce applications and market places that are totally tailored to the needs of your customers. Together with its ability to scale almost infinitely at low response times on standard hardware, you can run platforms that are larger than Amazon based on Aimeos using the #gigacommerce extension.

You can set up a fully running shop within five minutes, but you can also create your own pages easily. Aimeos offers components for every aspect of an e-commerce system which you can add in your controller action like this:

Response::view('shop.catalog.list', [
    'listbody' => Shop::get('catalog/lists')->getBody(),
    'listhead' => Shop::get('catalog/lists')->getHeader()
]);

These lines are enough to get a page with a product list including pagination and sorting. If you want to have full control over the list content, you can also fetch the products directly using the product API:

use \Aimeos\Shop\Facades\Product;
$items = Product::uses(['text', 'media', 'price'])
    ->catetory(123)->text('sneaker')
    ->sort('name')->slice(0, 48)->search();

Now you will get the first 48 products together with their texts, images, and prices sorted by their names which are assigned to the category “123” and contain the text “sneaker.”

Future

Aimeos is already a very feature rich system that contains almost everything you will need to build your online shop or B2B e-commerce application. Nevertheless, there are a few things that are on the list for the next versions:

  • GraphQL API as an alternative to the existing JSON REST API
  • Progressive web application based on Vue.js
  • AI-based image optimization and text translation
  • Personalization using machine learning
