Introduction to Sellvana Module Development Webinar - Recap


Our first developer series webinar was a huge success.  The interest in Sellvana keeps growing exponentially and we reached maximum capacity for attendees within a few days of announcing the webinar.  Unfortunately we could not accommodate all attendance requests and waiting list applicants. However, as promised here is the recording of the webinar so that everyone who was not able to make it can still review it .

On Composer, PSR, and Namespaces


We’ve been receiving many questions recently on the topic of Composer, PSR and Namespaces. I’d like to address them in this post.


While Composer is a fantastic tool for developers, Sellvana includes features that would allow non-technical merchants to install external modules with a single click. Unfortunately, this is where Composer falls short due to its command line only interface.  As a result we’ve built similar, well integrated features that handle this simply and easily.  Fulleron’s built-in module system allows you to define version sensitive module dependencies, handle database migrations, and seamlessly integrate with future Sellvana versions without unnecessary boundaries, integration bugs, version maintenance hurdles, or other limitations.
