After one too many late nights, we’re proud to announce the launch of Abi Loves… - a children’s products store in English and Japanese.
If you’re expecting kids, have kids, or need to get something for kids - you’re bound to find something (I hope!)
The site is image heavy and hosted in Japan, so your load-page times may vary if you’re accessing from overseas. Please be patient - Japan locals get 100Mbps fiber (yes, 100Mbps :), so we’re less concerned with page loads here :P
- Yuu-Pack and EMS shipping modules for Japan
- “kana fields” support for Japanese names, where we store the phonetic spelling of Japanese users’ names alongside their kanji spelling.
- rewritten image zoom as a jQuery plugin. I was surprised I couldn’t find a replica of the Prototype / Scriptaculous image zoom in jQuery. The UI is what we wanted, but I’m trying to wean Magento off its dependence on Prototype, so a jQuery plugin was in order.
The modules for Japan (shipping and kana-support) will be packaged soon for public consumption. The jQuery image zoom plugin will be provided on the jQuery plugins database once I catch up on paying my electricity bill, and the checkout jQuery code ... well, I wrote it abstractly enough that others should be able to use it, but I do need to clean it up a bit so will share it once I do that.
Anyways, hope people enjoy the new shop!
