    Oscar is the more traditional approach that closely resembles Magento (to my mind) it’s mature but that means it can be pretty complicated for admins to deal with. There is a REST API available for it if you want to go down that route.

  • Implementing eCommerce Into A Wagtail Project
    2 projects | | 14 Sep 2021
    I want to dip my toes into eCommerce with Wagtail. I came across the django-oscar-wagtail which brings django-oscar into Wagtail with supposedly seamless compatibility. From what I can see, django-oscar-wagtail is very outdated, the last update to that repository was 3 years ago and there are quite a lot of submitted issues regarding incompatibilities with the newer versions of Wagtail and Django.
