Drupal Commerce - Why It's Awesome

Drupal commerce is a new Drupal based E-commerce solution from the Commerce Guys. It’s built on D7 and uses extensive views integration, which makes it so much more easily configurable than it’s predecessor ever was. It also uses product entities, which can be a little jarring to an Ubercart convert to realize that products aren’t actually nodes. I’ll walk you through a basic setup of Drupal commerce and show you how easy it is to customize it. After breezing through some of the commerce basics, I’ll show you some of the API calls you can use to customize your site even farther, or just build some cool commerce extension modules.

I showed a few examples from the following example module I posted on github.


To get the code with git, do a git clone.

git clone git@github.com:aroot/commerce_examples.git
