    Hey @Born_For_War , believe it or not, I understood that. In a universe far away and a time forgotten I would have also wanted those books. Not so much anymore.

    Really? Well, don't spoil it for me, I am looking forward to reading them and creating a brand new website dedicated to Paganism. Hail Swarog!

    Gotta start mastering AngularJS in the next couple weeks. Not sure what to inject it in, but probably a shopping cart.

    The good news is that most of that is now available in a GUI development program. Then, you can tweak it in the code if you have to. I know you enjoy learning it. What I meant by I wouldn't be looking forward to them so much is that I don't write web sites any longer.

    @StopTheMusic--Oh, ok; understood. As for me, I'm doing websites, apps and databases as part of my business. I'm currently finishing up my first database, and I'd like to be able to implement a bit of JS in every website I create, hence my purchase of the references.

    @vxlccm, what does AngularJS involve? I've heard the name, just not explored what it actually does.

    Maybe you guys can tell me a bit more about what you're up to as regards IT :) Post on my journal any time, fellers!

    @Born_For_War for your e-commerce solutions. Find a good credit processor that has an easy to use GUI interface directly to their server. Much easier that inventing the wheel from scratch. Your current credit card processor might offer a web interface. But, they don't all offer the same ease of use.

    It says, "Angular is a JavaScript open-source framework which was designed particularly for single-page web applications using MVC architectural pattern. It is not a full-stack, but a front-end framework dealing basically with your webpages."

    Forgive me if this is an obvious question, but is it like jQuery, or not really?

    Thanks @StopTheMusic, I'll keep that in mind. Are there any credit processors you could recommend?

    Prototype > jQuery > AngularJS

    Sort of. Except that it can't do a lot of low level things. More like specifically for data handling "CRUD" operations.

    eCommerce credit card processing nearly always has to do with the merchant account of the person. Stateside, I've used maybe a dozen in as many years. I've rolled my own a lot, but if you do have a client using a bank that will allow a particular gateway that then you have a plugin for in a framework, then that's a good way to go.

    Problem is, there's usually problems that require custom code anyways. Maybe I just have picky clients ;P

    Hey @vxlccm It's been a bit of time since I built a page that processed credit cards. When I did, it was almost always for services not widgets. So, I needed something robust enough to allow me to only allow user access to a label that asked if they wanted the chicken or beef meal if they ordered the optional dinner. Today, I'd ask the cc processor to see a client with a website that uses their interface.

    Interesting. It's so very app-dependent, really. Generally, I'm an implementer at the lower level already getting paid a chunk of cash, so buying a package or even installing a thing isn't the mindset of my clients, they're always customizing and integrating with difficult and original issues. There's always modules but I end up doing a lot of connective wiring :)

    Hey - the problem you might run into is the client might have a cc processor already. And that cc processor might be giving them a half percent less then the cc processor with an interface to their server that actually makes sense. Will the client change cc processors just to get a better web interface or look at you and say, "make it work"?
