Spree: Open Source E-commerce for Rails Apps Gets Even Better

In Elsewhere, Plugins, Tools

spree-new-logo.png Back in September 2008, we posted about Spree, an open source Rails e-commerce platform that was then in its infancy. Now, however, Spree is truly flying. New versions are coming out frequently and there are more and more established sites using it to provide e-commerce functionality. Spree also just made it into GitHub's top 10 forked projects this week.

So why post about it again here? Well, our readership has grown a lot in the last year and Spree is a strong open source project that's both incredibly useful and worth knowing about in case you have a need for it in the future.

For those who are totally new to Spree, there's a live demo at and an extensive list of features here. Spree has come a long way in the last year - give it a look!
