WhatACart 2.0.0 released

We have rolled out release 2.0.0 for WhatACart, an open source ecommerce platform. This has been a major release where the application architecture has been changed to be more in sync with Yii 2.0 framework so that it would be easier for developers and designers to get ramp up on the platform. Also it would allow developers to integrate extensions already available for Yii 2.0 into the platform very easily.

Yii 2 usuario extension

Yii 2 usuario is a highly customizable and extensible user management, RBAC management, authentication, and authorization Yii2 module extension.

It works extensively with Yii's Container making it really easy to override absolutely anything within its core. The module is built to work out of the box with some minor config tweaks and it comes with the following features:

  • Backend user/profile/account management
  • Backend RBAC management
  • Login via username/email + password process
  • Login via social network process
  • Password recovery process

We considered that RBAC was essential to be included into any user management module, even if you simply use one user with admin role, its much better to actually work with RBAC just in case your application scales in the future.
