NoXX is a side project of a former colleague who wanted to sell gear for martial arts. To support this activity, he needed a website to advertise his products online but also to maintain the stock.
Using a ready-made e-commerce suite was investigated but most solutions were too overwhelming in terms of features and display. Providing clarity in the utilisation of the website was the most important aspect. Also, being on a tight budget and time frame, it seemed more efficient to build a simple e-commerce website from scratch rather than customizing a complex one.
Using PHP and mySQL, I took my personal blog as a starting point and added a catalog feature with products and their prices. In 2 weeks, the site was ready for production.
