AndelShop is not an open source engine, yet, it is built with developers in mind. One of the only aspects of AndelShop open to developers is Plugin sections. AndelShop plugins are open source. AndelShop has a standard approach to developing its plugin extension. AndelShop plugins serve the purpose of allowing developers extend the functionalities for the satisfaction of their various choices. It also helps other stores find quick answers to their functional problems. Developing a plugin for AndelShop takes the use of our standard framework. If you're a developer who wants to be AndelShop plugin extension's contributor, you must understand our workflow as well as the code nature.
The nature of our codes is clean php procedural. We understand the fact that 98%, if not 100, of the php developers are most familiar with the procedural style. So, this look has helped to formulate the basis of our decision to target web developers without any limitation through the use of procedural method.
Our workflow imitates the MVC method. The MVC method is the modern way of application development especially for web. AndelShop engine takes the same approach. The Model-View-Controller (MVC) is an architectural pattern that separates an application into three main logical components: the model, the view, and the controller. Each of these components is built to handle specific development aspects of an application. MVC is one of the most frequently used industry-standard web development framework to create scalable and extensible projects.
