Satchless, Django e-commerce framework

By Vasudev Ram

Satchless is an e-commerce framework written using Django and Python. The creators are Mirumee, a small company from Poland. They seem to have clients, including the BBC.

The name Satchless is a play on Satchmo, the name of another Django e-commerce framework. Satchmo was a nickname of Louis Armstrong, the famous American jazz trumpeter and singer of the 20th century.

The Mirumee site has an interesting Rube Goldberg-like image on the home page, which conveys what they do in a fun way. The page seemed jittery, though. Maybe they need to test it in more browsers (I'm using Chrome) and/or fix their web site code (JavaScript or whatever - I saw they use jQuery).
