Latest commit shows osCommerce 2.3 is going tableless (well almost). This is great if the commit remains in the eventual download.
That is conditions.php – 12 lines of code. Reduced from 2.2 which is triple that.
66 changed files, with thousands of lines of code updated, removed, added.
This commit should absolutely do away with the need for STS (Simple Template System), Niora’s “osc2css” contribution and many more.
Of course,it does mean that developers will need to recode portions of contributions to deal with the new layout, but that’s easy enough.
This change really brings the 2.x family of osCommerce back as a force to be reckoned with in the world of e-commerce. osCom3 (version 3 osCommerce) will still be much better though as that’s a whole new engine, rather than this change which is just a new body…but, it’s a MASSIVE leap forward for osCommerce.
I also noticed that the “download source” button is now gone. So how to download this version from Github? Anyone know LOL.
