GrandNode 4.00 released
Monday, November 13, 2017
New version of our open source, free, cross platform solution is coming. We are happy to announce that we officially published stable version of GrandNode 4.00 on our site and GitHub.
In the newest version our main goal was to move GrandNode to ASP.NET Core 2.0. What’s the key? It’s full ASP.NET Core 2.0 which allows you to run GrandNode on Linux, Mac and Windows. It's fully cross platform.
You are able to download it from our GitHub page.
ASP.NET Core 2.0 – GrandNode on Linux, MacBook and Windows
When Microsoft released ASP.NET Core 2.0 we’ve decided to implement it in our newest version of GrandNode. ASP.NET is an open source framework available on GitHub.
What’s the main plus? It’s cross platform. You can run GrandNode on Windows, Linux and Mac without problems! We’ve already tested it and it works!
More information about ASP.NET Core 2.0 are available here:
Changes in Discount engine
From GrandNode 4.00 you are able to calculate discounts by specified plugin. What does it mean for you? Each developer can create any kind of discount rule.
Discounts can be enabled or disabled by marking checkbox.
We've also decided to change the way of adding coupon codes. Now you are able to create multiple coupon codes in one discount. It's also possible to buy plugin which will automatically generate many coupon codes.
Individual prices per customer
It allows you to assign individual prices to each products per customer. For example we have product XYZ:
Customer 1 has price 20$
Customer 2 has price 21$
Customer 3 has price 40$
It’s independent setting which can be specified in admin panel – Customer -> Individual prices.
Vendor system changes
From this version customers are allowed to write reviews for vendors. You can specify its description, image.
To the GrandNode we've decided to implement Amazon S3 CDN. Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3). It's simple to move large volumes of image data into or out of Amazon S3 with Amazon's cloud data migration options. Amazon S3 has a simple web services interface that you can use to store and retrieve any amount of data, at any time, from anywhere on the web. It gives any developer access to the same highly scalable, reliable, fast, inexpensive data storage infrastructure that Amazon uses to run its own global network of web sites. The service aims to maximize benefits of scale and to pass those benefits on to developers.
Marketing Automation - Customer Tag -> Products
We've made also some improvements in our Marketing Automation engine. From the newest version you are allowed to add products assigned to specified customer tag. So when your customer will have Customer Tag "Influencer", you can add products which will appear on their home page.
