In order to create plugins for EvenCart, we'll first need to setup your environment to have fast debugging and test cycles. If you are already familiar with ASP.NET and are already into web application development with .NET, you should already have your machine ready.
The development environment should have the following software installed.
- Visual Studio 2015 or higher
- Sql Server 2012 or higher
- MySql 5 or higher
- IIS 7.0 or above with URL rewrite module enabled
Before we create plugins, we need to have a test project setup ready. Visit our GitHub repository to clone the project (or if you are developing for a specific version, download the source code of that version from the releases page).
Open the solution file at
/src/EvenCart/EvenCart.sln in the Visual Studio.
Once you have your machine ready, we can proceed with the understanding the plugin structure.
