E-commerce computing that is managed through website portals uses any number of digital tools to collect and structure data. Databases (customers, inventory), templates (page styling, forms), and session management tools are all utilized to connect the viewing consumer with the site owner's goods and services in a way that engages and encourages sales and repeat visits. Web site development establishes the functions that will connect the buyer and seller.
Websites are constructed on both the "server" side (by the website host) and the "client" side (the site owner's proprietary information and preferences).
On the server side, a "framework" program acts as the "structure" upon which a web page is built and will configure the digital tools to access and operate the various commercial functions. Frameworks accept modules of additional programming that are selected based on the client's needs.
Three prominent "server" side programs that are used for e-commerce include "PHP," "Python" and "Ruby." Each of these programs is a language that can be manipulated to provide everything the end-user wants. The specific attributes of each language are different from each other, just as French is different from English, so programmers select one over the other based on the properties that will work best for the client's purposes.
"CakePHP," "Yii," "Zend Framework," "Symfony" and "CodeIgniter" are variables on the "PHP" language. "Django," "Webapp2," "Twisted" and "GAE" are variables of the Python language, and "Sinatra" and "Grape" are variables on Ruby. "Rails" is another language on the server side; it is combined with Ruby to craft the versatile language "Ruby on Rails."
