Personal Reaction Commerce e-commerce store I created and maintain to help connect Indonesian botanical businesses with the US.

:: Reaction Commerce / GraphQL / MongoDB / Next.js / Docker / Traefik

After finding the cure for my chronic bronchitis I set out to create an e-commerce website helping sell botanicals from Indonesia to the United States. My initial site design was using a headless e-commerce starter I created with a Shopify back-end but I wasn’t satisfied with the speed nor speed.

The Reaction system I use now provides a microservice architecture based around a GraphQL API using MongoDB for persistance.

The storefront, shown below, uses a customized version of the latest Example Storefront stable release and the entire system runs on less than 2GB of RAM.

Using Ruby, Sinatra and MongoDB on Windows to create a UI back-end.

After writing about Developing Web Apps on Windows with Vagrant spent some time immersing myself in Ruby and Ruby Gems. Tonight, while catching up on some articles in my Pocket, I ran across the following article from Addy Osmani: Building Backbone.js Apps With Ruby, Sinatra, MongoDB and Haml.

Sweet. In addition to Addy’s very awesome and open-source book  Backbone Fundamentals, he’s also writing some useful related articles. And though I’d likely ditch haml in favor of  Emblem with  Swag, Addy’s article ought to be a good starting point for the Ruby newbie.
