London Magento Hackathon Project Ideas 2014

List of project ideas for the London Magento Hackathon 2014.

One Page Checkout without any Prototype

One Page Checkout without any Prototype

Create a one page checkout that uses no prototype. Only jquery or something else.

Improve cart-discount information

Improve cart-discount information

For many customers it is a complete mess if you work with multiple cart-rules or other discount mechanics in general. There is only a general and accumulated "discount" shown in the cart.
It would be nice to show how it was combined (maybe rule names or such) and an even bigger plus would be to show an information if they only miss some small things to achieve a discount, like lets say "buy 3 get 1 for free" and they have 2 in the cart. So they get the information about it and can shop for some more to "save more"

Auto Backend Grids+Forms

Auto Backend Grids+Forms

As a Magento developer, a recurring pain is creating backend grids and forms. They tend to be too much work for such simple UI elements. With this extension, by specifying a db table name, a grid and form are automatically made available with sensible defaults. These defaults then can be customized as needed.

Simpler Shopping Cart Price Rules

Simpler Shopping Cart Price Rules

The Shopping Cart price rules interface in Magento Admin is notoriously complicated. It needs to be easier. No matter how many times I've trained Admins, they almost always end up creating rules that don't work and then report it as a bug and waste Development time to figure it out.

With an easy-to-follow interface, this could solve a lot of headaches. Maybe create templates for some of the easier-to-do rules that don't need all the complexity: a "Simple / Advanced" model like in the Chrome settings.

Simpler integration with Wordpress

The integration with Wordpress is not user friendly.

Just in time capability

Just in time (JIT) is a production strategy that strives to improve a business' return on investment by reducing in-process inventory and associated carrying costs.

Landing page & beta

Landing page & beta

Create a simple module which allows the administrator to put the website "off". In a beta mode or something like that.
Then all the pages are redirected to a landing page (which is access allowed) with a form to subscribe to the newsletter.

And maybe we can also allow some pages like : customer registration (account creation and login, with or without the account page), legals and some pages.

Ideas welcome!

Simple Sponsorship module

Simple Sponsorship module

I can't remove my mistake.

So, maybe we can develop a simple sponsorship module. Like : if your friends register you get 10 points.. If your friends order you get 50.

And after that you can transform your points into a coupon or maybe you can just checkout with it as a second payment method.

The idea is to provide a way (in the admin) to customize the rates and maybe the balance for the payment method (how many points to get how many money).

Just use a sharing URL and we can develop a sharing page with the url and all share buttons in the world :D

Simplify Product Creation

Simplify Product Creation

Re-design the admin user experience to make the process of creating new products in the catalog simpler for all product types (simple, configurable, bundle, virtual, grouped).

Suggest doing this a prototype rather than working code due to the complexity of the task.

12

Simplify Order Creation

Simplify Order Creation

Re-design the Admin user experience to make it more efficient to create and manager orders through the Admin. This is a common complaint from companies that have tele-sales departments, as the existing experience is overly complex and takes too much time.

Re-imagine the dashboard, reporting, and/or analytics experiences.
