I was introduced to Lemonstand by the guys over at Condiment and since downloading a developer’s licence, I haven’t looked back. It is a scalable ecommerce platform based in PHP that is being actively developed by Canada’s Limewheel Creative.
Developers are openly encouraged to produce extensions for the Lemonstand Marketplace that other users can download and install into their websites. These extensions can range from marketing, payment or shipping modules. In addition, Lemonstand houses a templating system similar to WordPress that enables developers to produce designs on a closed system before installing them on a live website.
Lemonstand is still in it’s infancy and the continual development has resulted in a flourishing community that can use the system to increase productivity.
Lemonstand has enabled me to learn more about PHP in the process of developing different sites and templates.
