ADDON: iPhone Administration + Customer Skin

Thread for Official Build of the iPhone Web Application Addon for CS-CART 2.1 which is going to be a replication of the current “Magento” iPhone Addon



The Quote

For the administrator’s panel:

  1. We will add the “Mobile” tab to the top menu in the administrator’s panel.
  2. We will upload two background images and one image for the banner on the home page in this tab.
  3. We will add the ability to upload twelve basic colors for the color scheme of the mobile skin. You will be able to select a color in the pop-up window created with the help of JavaScript.
  4. Also, we will create a section with the tabs which will later be displayed at the bottom of the screen. These tabs will direct to some certain pages of the store.

    These changes will cost approximately USD 675.

    As you can see, there is the Preview functionality in the right part of the page with the settings of the mobile skin in Magento. This functionality allows to show how the home page of the mobile skin will look when applying current settings. Please let us know if you want to use this functionality also. If yes, this addition will cost USD 450.

    In the customer’s area:
  5. We will create a new skin that will be used only for the mobile add-on.
  6. We will make the adaptation of the color scheme set in the admin panel.
  7. We will change only the appearance and the color scheme. We will not change the default functionality of CS-Cart.

    These changes will cost approximately USD 1350.

    In this case the total cost of the project will be approximately USD 2475 and depend on the detailed specification. Please let us know if this cost suits you and I will prepare the detailed description of the project for you.

    we are looking for people whom are willing to make donations of $100+ - if anyone is interested and wanting to make a donation to this development please contact me in with with the following details:

I’m concerned that item #10 makes no mention of iPhone, Blackberry, Android, or other mobile browsers.

It is for iPhone, i can assure you of that! we are still needing om donations, are you interested?

I may be interested. Just so I understand correctly, this will allow iPhone users to view your site optimized for iPhone but computer users will still see the regular skin. Correct?

yes this is correct - its going to be very similar to the magento one that is available

Is it an app or will it work in the iPhone Safari browser. Also will it work with CSCart 2.0.14?

Hello All,



Here is a Magento iPhone video demo:

Magento makes an app, but I think we’re talking about a skin for CS-Cart.

1line:



Can you confirm if this is a skin or an app. If it’s a skin, will we be able to have a web skin and a mobile skin active at the same time (so if someone comes from a mobile device they get the mobile skin. Also I need to know if this will be compatible with 2.0.14. The client that would be interested is on that version and it is heavily modded so they can’t switch to 2.1 anytime soon.

yep you are correct, the magento application is what we are basing this cs-cart addon on - it will be configured teh same in admin and look simular in the customer view on the iphone as the magento one but will be for cs-cart only!

we currently have in mind that this will be for 2.1.x as it is currently in the low end of builds it should cover a majority of future releases - when it is complete we can test in 2.0.x but from what i can remember there was many changes from 2.0.x > 2.1.x so might not be workable on that version however might not be to much work to work for 2.0.x - it would be a good idea for us to cover this as we expect that a lot of users would be on these builds!



to confirm though for you, it is going to be a skin, so when the site is visited using the iphone the iphone version of the site will be loaded, for the initial build anyway, in the future releases it would support other handsets!



in regards to an app from the app store, we do have this on our list of things to do after the initial release, but it would simply be an app that we would configure to your store brand which would load up the store iphone skin through the app directly.



Also in the pipeline but only in doodles and writing is to develop an administration app to manage the admin side of thecart through your iphone but this is just an idea of concept at the moment.



My main priority at the moment is getting enough donations together to get the initial solution built for the iphone skin and then we will develop / fund the other ideas - so any donations are welcome, remember that donators will receive a licenced copy of the iphone skin / admin addon for free!

Please move your posts to the 3rd party section. You are offering services that are not in response to a particular problem.



While these are all great ideas, the 3rd party forum is specifically for 3rd parties to gather information about the demand for a product and/or to solicit interest in existing products.



If the solutions are in response to a merchant posed problem, then it’s completely appropriate to respond with a link/description of a solution being offered. However, to use the hints/modifications section to gather requirements for future offerings seems a bit blatant to me. And it’s happening repetitively.



Not trying to start a pissing match, just want everyone to play by the same rules so some sanity is maintained here.

1line, if this skin will be compatible with 2.0.14, I will contribute. Where are you at contribution wise.

I want to make a donation but i need to know if it is not a joke.

If this is really the same as the youtube video shows, I am interested.
