An attempt to port/rebuild Spree, an open source e-commerce solution, with Phoenix.


Spree is an excellent product however, for several reasons, it started to show some limits:

  • being written in Ruby and Rails requires a lot of hosting resources
  • it became a big, monolithic piece of software, really hard to customize
  • it slowed down the development pace (perhaps because of the point above)

So here’s the deal: why not to port/rebuild Spree with Elixir and Phoenix? The main idea is to take inspiration from the many Spree’s good parts and build a new generation ecommerce for the next years.
