Migrating Online Store
Emma One Sock is a web-based fashion fabric store with +25 years on the market. They strive to provide their customers with a steady supply of fashionable, upscale fabrics, from some of the finest designers and manufacturers from all around the world.
We have been working with them on migrating their online store to some
of the most cutting-edge technologies, to make it faster, safer, and
more user-friendly. They have been running their website with an
online shop on a legacy ASP Classic code. We picked ASP .NET Core
framework as the best replacement, and have been gradually replacing
the existing modules. The new solution is hosted on Microsoft Azure
cloud computing service, to take advantage of its flexibility and
We also helped them integrate the website with a CMS, backed up by Redis cache. The front-end had a number of dynamic components, for which we decided to use Vue.Js framework. Finally, we used Amazon S3 cloud service for storing assets.
We had to integrate the existing authentication and metadata on the ASP classic site with the new one, so that both could be seamlessly used by users and allow us to gradually replace site’s modules. Besides this, we worked towards changing the previously rigid layout into a responsive one, while still keeping the look and feel of the site, which has a lot of dedicated customers. Another challenge we had to face, was writing a search engine, using a full-text search, allowing customers to easily find desired products.
