    I'm planning to create a web application and also a mobile application to provide a very good shopping experience to the end customers. Shortly, my application will be aggregate the product details from difference sources and giving a clear picture to the user that when and where to buy that product with best in Quality and cost.

    I have planned to develop this in many milestones for adding N number of features and I have picked my first part to complete the core part (aggregate the product details from different sources).

    As per my work experience and knowledge, I have chosen the followings stacks to this mission.

    UI: I would like to develop this application using React, React Router and React Native since I'm a little bit familiar on this and also most importantly these will help on developing both web and mobile apps. In addition, I'm gonna use the stacks JavaScript, jQuery, jQuery UI, jQuery Mobile, Bootstrap wherever required.

    Service: I have planned to use Java as the main business layer language as I have 7+ years of experience on this I believe I can do better work using Java than other languages. In addition, I'm thinking to use the stacks Node.js.

    Database and ORM: I'm gonna pick MySQL as DB and Hibernate as ORM since I have a piece of good knowledge and also work experience on this combination.

    Search Engine: I need to deal with a large amount of product data and it's in-detailed info to provide enough details to end user at the same time I need to focus on the performance area too. so I have decided to use Solr as a search engine for product search and suggestions. In addition, I'm thinking to replace Solr by Elasticsearch once explored/reviewed enough about Elasticsearch.

    Host: As of now, my plan to complete the application with decent features first and deploy it in a free hosting environment like Docker and Heroku and then once it is stable then I have planned to use the AWS products Amazon S3, EC2, Amazon RDS and Amazon Route 53. I'm not sure about Microsoft Azure that what is the specialty in it than Heroku and Amazon EC2 Container Service. Anyhow, I will do explore these once again and pick the best suite one for my requirement once I reached this level.

    Build and Repositories: I have decided to choose Apache Maven and Git as these are my favorites and also so popular on respectively build and repositories.

    Additional Utilities :) - I would like to choose Codacy for code review as their Startup plan will be very helpful to this application. I'm already experienced with Google CheckStyle and SonarQube even I'm looking something on Codacy.

    Happy Coding! Suggestions are welcome! :)

    Thanks, Ganesa

    • Frontend: AngularJS, Bootstrap
    • Web Framework: Spring Boot
    • Database: Amazon DynamoDB
    • Authentication: Auth0
    • Deployment: Amazon EC2 Container Service
    • Local Testing: Docker
    • Marketing: Mailchimp (Separately Export from Auth0)
    • Website Domain: GoDaddy
    • Routing: Amazon Route 53

    PS: Open to exploring options of going completely native ( AWS Lambda, AWS Security but have to learn all)

      I am looking to make a website builder web app, where users can publish built websites with a custom or subdomain (much like Wix, Weebly, Squarespace, etc.), and I was wondering about any advice on which web framework to build it on? I currently know Node.js, but I would be excited to learn Laravel or Django if those would be better options. Any advice would be much appreciated!

      Hi,

      I'm a graphic designer and an acting teacher, and I want to build websites for each of my activities. A few months ago, I created, a Wix website, but it's not responsive. So, I plan to build one from scratch, as I want to host the content and not leave it to Wix or such companies. I was pretty decided to use WordPress to build my website (with "Local" macOS app), but I came across Bootstrap (via "blocs" macOS app).

      I'm now wondering which of these two options I should consider building my website? I want something clean, easy to customize, aesthetic, and easy to update. I read about the lack of SEO with Bootstrap, but I guess there's a way to compensate and promote the website anyway.

      Any piece of advice welcome! Thanks.
