Hiding parts of Oscar Commerce
Posted on 2017-04-07 (Updated on 2017-04-07)
I've been working on an eCommerce website using Oscar Commerce, and it has been an experience. One of the issues I've encountered is that Oscar has a tremendous number of features that I will never, ever need,
Luckily, there's an undocumented setting,
OSCAR_HIDDEN_FEATURES, that is itself a hidden feature! The syntax is a simple list of different apps that you don't want to use:
OSCAR_HIDDEN_FEATURES = [ 'reviews', ]
I use it to hide the reviews app specifically, and I'm not sure if OSCAR_HIDDEN_FEATURES works for other apps, but it looks like it could be implemented by forking an app and adding the
hidable_feature_name attribute to the application:
class MyHideableApplication(PreviousApplication): hidable_feature_name = "hideme"
If this stays undocumented, and I get to play with it a little more, I might do a full explanation of how it works - and how you can implement it in templates and such.
