DigiCom Beta Released

DigiCom Beta Released

The days of waiting has been over, DigitCom beta is now available for Joomla!. And we have all documentation ready, that you need to take part in testing, reporting, and contribution.

You've already known that DigiCom is the first Digital Commerce for Joomla and the key focus of this component is to provide such a software that enable you to quickly and easily setup your own marketplace in a minute. We have been working extremely hard since the beginning of January, 2015. The consequence is, we have been able to release a faster, powerful and flexible component, DigiCom beta.

Instead of MVP(Minimum Viable Product) which is the most popular strategy in software development, we focused on MLP(Most Lovable Product). We designed the product from the ground up and improved Joomla usability a lot. 

In the first blog post, our CEO explained how much challenges we face to sell digital products. To get ourselves out of pain and extra hassles, we started to develop DigiCom and later we found the necessity of digital commerce component in the Joomla community. 

I know you guys are excited about DigiCom like us. We'd love to hear your feedback. We created a Gitter chatroom to discuss the issues and features with you and you can report issues on Github directly.

Throughout the beta, changes will be frequently made that could require you complete installation or reconfiguration of DigiCom component again and again.

But don’t worry we sketched out a development roadmap to outline upcoming additional changes to DigiCom for its initial full release.
