Above The Fray founders Maren and Josh travel to the mountains of northern Laos and Vietnam, and team with local artisans to import unique and individual products. I worked with them years ago in getting an initial store online so they could reach more customers. Fast forward to 2018 - and it was time to redesign the site and update their look. Their web designer contacted me with new templates, and we discussed plans to rebuild the store on a more modern platform.



The store is built on a PHP+Laravel Backend, with MySQL as the database. Composer manages PHP dependencies. Voyager is leveraged to create an admin interface for the client, where they can manage their product catalog. Google Analytics is used to track visitors on the site. The site is hosted on our servers here at Complete Code Solutions.


Interesting Challenges

Importing existing products

Products existed in the database from the previous incarnation of the site, and needed to be retained. In order to migrate them smoothly to the new system, I created migration scripts that read the old data records, imported them into the new database, copied the product images, and applied a new categorization hierarchy.
