Creating an OpenCart extension is one thing, but then there comes the problem of supporting other third-party extensions. Though vQmod does offer a neat way to patch core OpenCart files on the fly, different extensions patching the same file can become a problem.
We spend 50% of the support time on such issues, which means that there is a great need for better compatibility between extensions.
That’s why we’ve taken on a brand-new perspective: trying to collaborate with other extension developers and make OpenCart Mobile Framework compatible with more extensions out-of-the-box.
This will definitely be a long process, but OpenCart Mobile Framework is already compatible with a number of extensions.
It’s important to clarify what “compatibility” means:
- Some extensions work on the mobile site, which means that their functionality is available on the mobile site
- Some extensions work side-by-side with the mobile site, meaning that we’ve taken care that they don’t cause any problems. Their functionality won’t be available on the mobile site.
