They had a requirement to export data in xml format in the admin panel of nopcommerce.
The Challenges faced by the Company
The client's site was deployed in the PHP technology and using osCommerce as their shopping cart. Due to some performance issues with the old website, they were looking to build their site in the latest ASP.Net MVC3 technology and hired us to build custom modules for the same. Ideally they wanted an e commerce set up for retail and wholesale with the latest nopcommerce application. One significant module they wanted was that can export data in xml format in the admin panel of nop commerce Along with the custom module development, they were looking to redesign their entire website, do skinning work on the home and other content pages. They were looking for a company that specializes in nopcommerce MVC technology, so gave the entire project to our company.
After assessing the diagnostic aspects of the project, we divided the work between our DNN team and designing experts. Firstly, we did DNN skinning integration and implementation of the home and other content pages. Side by Side, we worked on the several custom modules as requested by the clients. We made a design mine module that can assist the users customize their rockers according to their choice of colors and designs. By clicking on randomize, a user has the ability to view his set of rockerz in random colors. This module is displayed in the figure 1.
We made the shopping cart with the nopcommerce newest 2.6 version, so all the latest functionalities of the nopcommerce were also added by default to the application. These include:
- Use AJAX for adding products to the cart.
- New flyout mini-shopping cart.
- Allow a store owner to delete abandoned shopping carts and wishlists
- Allow a store owner to configure a "Shipping by Weight" plugin by states and zip
- Added FedEx shipment tracking support
- Lots of performance optimization
They wanted a custom module that can facilitate to export data in the admin panel of nop commerce. This data needs to be in the XML format, which can then consumed by various apps (windows, iOS, Android). This module had nothing to do with the front end of the nopcommerce shopping cart, but to be deployed in the admin panel. This XMl file is to be generated dynamically whenever a new cut point is added, a cut point is edited, or a cut point is deleted. Our nopcommerce specialists developed this module where cut points can be managed i.e. Add/Edit and Delete. Figure 2 and 3 below shows how the cut up points are managed in the admin side.
The XMl file for the cut points is shown in the figure 4.
