About CMS Customization and the Static Website alternative : ecommerce
Shopify appears to be the CMS of selection these days. (perhaps not in that group however in all places else round).
Only factor that bugs me is its customization choices.
Let’s take the primary Debut theme for instance : it has a clear format, but when you do not need your retailer to seem like each retailer round, you need to customise it, and that is a compulsory step. Now, lets say you wish to modify the product photographs frames, merely transfer the search button in the header to the left of the brand (if it is centered), or including description dropdowns in your product pages, then you need to dive into the liquid information and change the complete format.
Shopify apps have been created to resolve most of those issues. But once more, customization is restricted, and these are including plenty of weight to your web site, typically making a reasonably primary theme actually sluggish. Am I the just one that finds the Shopify admin panel soooo sluggish?
I’ve a strong information in frontend growth. But these liquid information? Far from being as clear as the supply of a web site I am going to construct from scratch. Shopify is utilizing flexbox to prepare most components in its templates, however man, I simply hate how the liquid information look. Some folks right here will perhaps recommendation to spend a while studying how liquid works, however I do not wish to construct Shopify themes. I simply wish to customise a primary theme.
It should be a problem with CMS usually, as a result of even when I made the selection to maneuver to WooCommerce, customization would not be as simple once more.
Here are my inquiries to the Shopify gurus and eCommerce folks right here:
– are you typically preventing with the customization choices the totally different CMS provide (WooCommerce, Shopify)?
– have you ever ever thought-about constructing a easy static web site, with search being dealt with by grabbing your merchandise information from a json file, and merely dealing with checkout by utilizing the Shopify Buy Button, or doing a get request pointing to an exterior shopify web site of yours containing the totally different merchandise and its portions?
– what does Shopify or WooCommerce provide that could not be achieved by a static web site? (search/fee/checkout/members are the most vital ones for my part, figuring out that advertising and marketing points of the eCommerce scheme can aswell be achieved by exterior instruments (mailing/upsell))
Pretty technical dialogue right here however to know what a few of you guys take into consideration all this.
Thanks prematurely on your solutions.
