Hello everybody and welcome to QUIQQQER Retrospect 2019 / 16. Topics of this week
- QUIQQER Retrospect
- Version 1.3 - Comfy Campeiro
- Start of development of product variants
Yeah, you read right: We give our review a new name. "QUIQQER week in review" becomes "QUIQQER Retrospect". This makes us a little more flexible.
Currently there are many interesting topics around QUIQQER. Many new services are starting and we are getting closer and closer to our goals: We want to continue to make QUIQQER more flexible, easier and more efficient for you. A lot is happening. So it's almost difficult for us to select individual topics for "week in review" from the wealth of topics.
Experience has shown, however, that other times also come. Especially in summer there is a small lull in the topics.
With QUIQQER Retrospect as our new format, we can react better to such fluctuations. So from now on you will get your QUIQQER news even more targeted. Therefore: Welcome to the QUIQQER Retrospect 2019 / 16
Version 1.3 - Comfy Campeiro
The last tests of version 1.3 are finished and the blogpost for the release is mandatory. During our tests we found some minor bugs. We are currently fixing them for the upcoming release.
Then nothing stands in the way of QUIQQER Comfy Campeiro.
Start of development of product variants
QUIQQER still lacks three things for a complete e-commerce system:
- Product variants
- Shipping module
- Customer administration
The development of the variants has been conceived for a long time and we have finally started this week with the implementation. Turns out it's not as easy as I thought it would be at first. We have to pay a lot of attention and that's what we first created a concept for.
The first major changes include so-called product types. This means that completely new product types can be introduced into the system and offer a great deal of flexibility. Now modules can bring their own product types with them. This is practical for subscription products, for example. The plan or membership module can now provide a product type. This brings along its own fields and reacts to certain events.
The first area of application, however, is product types in the product variants (father and child products). Here we split a product into many product variants. In this way, products with similar properties can be displayed much more quickly.
A shoe in different colors and different sizes is thus created with just a few clicks. The nice thing about product variants is that they are easy to understand for e-commerce beginners. Each product variant can have its own price. However, you can also overwrite other characteristics of the parent product.
We know that this all sounds a bit complicated and a normal user should not even come into contact with all the technical things. But it is important to us that you know what we are working on.
Soon there will be more to see. In the upcoming QUIQQER Retrospects we'll show you how the whole thing looks in practice.
A lot has happened and the next weeks are full of tasks. Therefore we will charge our batteries a bit next weekend to be able to give everything in the final sprint.
Thanks for reading,
Henning from QUIQQER
