Hello there!

 

I'm looking to cut time and cost in regards to the front end design of my CS-Cart store.

 

I plan on creating subdomains using Webflow, specifically for my blog and help pages. 

 

This got me thinking, is it possible to design my CS-Cart marketplace in Webflow, export the HTML5, CSS3 & JS code, and then implement said code easily into my CS-Cart theme?

 

What are peoples thoughts on this? Is it an easy thing to do? Any tips or resources you could share?

 

 

Note: I understand front end code but not a scooby about PHP (although willing to learn of course).

 

 

Thanks!

 

Jamie

Good luck.  You will never get an addon to work in that environment.  Everything is Smarty templates (other than the newer (worst) email editor which is based on TWIG).

Hello, 

 

Webflow uses auto-generated JS/CSS that is compiled from the builder. Thus, it will be more complicated to migrate the same styles and JS to CS-Cart. Besides, you cannot use generated HTML because CS-Cart frontend is based on Smarty template engine. Your approach will not work. 

 

I would say you can create a stunning theme without the need to do major template modifications. You can create amazing new look and feel with CSS only as well as CS-Cart block layout.
