  • Concept Thisismykea.com
    Selling precisely sized stickers that fit on your IKEA furniture
    E-commerce platform
    Designer community
  • Zend version
    Lead developer most knowledgeable with Zend
    We were not convinced that Drupal could handle such complexity, in experience possibly…
    8 man months of work and started in Feb 2010
  • Zend – Con’s & Pro’s
    No backend functions out of the box or easily created & need on ACL implementation.
    Multilingual is hard, manual PO files
    No great building blocks
    Object Oriented
    Database mapper (Doctrine ORM)
    Easier to deploy & version control

  • Drupal version
    Got frustrated that we did not have building blocks and admin section was very costly to build
    Everything needed to be custom coding & then theming. We see this issue in multiple platforms/frameworks.
    About 6 man months of work and startedin Jan 2011
  • Con’s
    Miscalculation on our side to force drupal to concept and not convince client to sacrifice certain parts to do in the “drupal way”.
    Ubercart implements/outputs to many things in it’s own way, which is hard to customize
    This has cost us at least +/- 3man months
  • Pro’s
    Easy & clean backend extensions
    Extensive permission system
    Being able to add webservices fairly easy
    Much better multilingual
    Better extendable for the future
  • Conclusion
    Happy to do it, but we lost time making drupal the way the design needed.But gained a lot of time on implementing many aspects with the default “drupal building blocks”
  • Discussion
    What kind of experiences did you have?Who went from Custom to Drupal?
    Did any one of go from Drupal to Custom?And why?
