What is eclime?
eclime is a very powerful Smarty™
based e-commerce/shopping cart software build from trusted osCommerce 2.2
engine, with many useful contributions added. It has all the features needed to run a successful internet store and can be customized to whatever configuration you need.
Valid Strict XHTML!
Non-valid pages are (by definition) relying on error-correction by a browser. This error correction can and does vary radically across different browsers and versions, so that many authors who unwittingly relied on the quirks of Netscape 1.1 suddenly found their pages appeared totally blank in Netscape 2.0. Whilst Internet Explorer initially set out to be bug-compatible with Netscape, it too has moved towards standards compliance in later releases. Other browsers differ further.
Smarty™ Template Engine
Why Smarty ?
Designers can't break application code. They can mess with the templates all they want, but the code stays intact. The code will be tighter, more secure and easier to maintain. With presentation on its own layer, designers can modify or completely redesign it from scratch, all without intervention from the programmer.
