Sylius v1.0.0 Released! Try it out now!


Welcome to our blog, where we share news related to Sylius and post about technology & eCommerce.

Friday Update #2 30.08.2013

This week we changed the organization of git repositories, improved German translations and discussed the redesign.

We passed another community milestone...
Over 80 people have contributed to Sylius. "Thank you" is all I can say!

Sylius Standard Edition

As discussed in the RFC, I reorganized our GitHub structure.

Both of the proposed solutions received similar amount of votes, so it was a bit difficult to decide which way we should go.

I picked the Symfony approach because it simplifies the maintaince and contributing processes. It has pros and cons, but it is the safest solution - it seems to work well for other projects.

  • All bundles have been merged into Sylius/Sylius repository.
  • Each bundle/component has a git mirror, which is an automatically updated subtree split.
  • Sylius SE distribution is going to be published next week, which will serve as a foundation for your custom apps.

From now on, you do not need to watch and fork 20+ repositories in order to contribute.

While I share some doubts about using git subtree to structure the framework, I believe this pragmatic approach is the right one.

Payum integration

Maksim Kotlyar is working on Payum integration and he has already integrated Stripe and PayPal Express. I'm following his work closely, but it requires time to review such change.

Please help us reviewing the pull request and share your ideas.

German, Slovenian and Croatian translations

Stefan Staudenmeyer and @Capenus contributed quite a lot of German translations for the main application and bundles. Peter Kokot added a bunch of Slovenian files.

Antonio Peric submitted a huge PR with the Croatian translation.

Thanks guys! I'm still exploring the possibility of using the Crowdin service. We need to work out a smooth synchronization method between the translating tool and GitHub.

Redesign RFC

I think we all want Sylius to be beautiful, both in the code and interface. I started the discussion about default theme. Please share your ideas in the redesign RFC.


What's next?

Sylius SE and the documentation improvements are the priorities for the next week. Unfortunately (for Sylius), tonight I'm leaving for my long-planned holidays, so my activity in the coming two weeks may be a bit lower. I hope to check GitHub and answer your messages at least once a day. Feel free to drop me an e-mail at

Have a great weekend!
