OpenCart is an open source PHP-based e-commerce online shop website solution. Ideal for new or existing stores to start selling online.
OpenCart all began because (at the time) the leading open source e-commerce solution out there was not very good, to say the least.
The first public release was OpenCart v0.2 back in early 2006 and has been gaining momentum ever since.
The project is lead by Daniel Kerr, and I have also recently joined the team.
I have been working on 0.7.9 since I released 0.7.8 back in July. OpenCart is now a much more stable platform, and we are now looking to start adding new features in 0.8.
