Solidus: Rails eCommerce Introduction
In this episode we take a look at an open source library that will assist in helping you build an e-commerce site with ruby on rails.
Solidus is a fork of spree commerce however the folks behind solidus want to do things slightly differently hence the fork.
We begin by setting up a new Rails app and installing the solidus gem. We then run the install script then setup the database and sample data to go with it.
The sample data will come in handy when we start playing with solidus, we will explore how all the features of solidus work and how we can customize the look and feel of the app.
