Monster CMS is an e-shop system developed by us using the most modern technologies on the market.

Why should you develop your own system today?

Over the past 10 years, we have built e-shops on various open-source solutions such as Drupal Prestashop and Woocomerce. Overtime, we have encountered limitations while working with all these systems which were not easy to overcome. The effort to adjust them according to the client's needs had taken a lot of time and unnecessary costs. We have seen our clients grow over the years and the existing solutions have become unsatisfactory and insufficient. In 2020, we completed our own headless e-shop solution, which is built modularly, with only the core of the system being fixed and everything else can be easily modified according to the client's needs.

Naše řešení

Technical specifications

The functionality of the system (back end) is written in PHP (Laravel). The client and administrative part is built on the JS framework Vue.JS, which ensures fast response and smooth transitions between pages and more natural UX. We use Server Side Rendering technology, where all parts of the website are important for pre-generated SEO and therefore it is not a problem to index the webpages by robots. Of course, there is also a connection to Google Analytics / GTM, which allows easy measurement of even more complex events (for example a failure while sending an order due to an error in an address) and a natural full-text search that can display the results as it is, so there is no need to wait for the search of all.

The CMS is divided into three parts:

  • API server - Runs on PHP framework Laravel and MySQL database. It mediates all calculations and analysis. It stores and reads from the database. It is currently the most used framework for web application development and the complete documentation can be found here: https://laravel.com/docs/8.x/releases. The modules themselves are created directly by us according to the needs of our clients. These are primarily separate functional units so that unnecessary complications won't occur in the more complex applications, therefore making them easier to update and improve.
  • Client APP - Client application connected to the API server.
  • Admin APP - Administrator application connected to the API server.
  • Both front end applications are developed on the JS framework Vue.JS and are tailored to the needs of clients. We know that each client's need is unique and that is why we always prepare a personal administration interface, which has a fundamental impact on the intuitiveness of controlling the entire application.
