Evershop was developed with Node and PostgreSQL. The project is divided into 2 parts: the backend and the frontend.
It is a monolithic application, which means that the backend and the frontend are in the same project.
Evershop provides both REST API and GraphQL API for the frontend to communicate with the backend.
EverShop is a modular application and it supports modularity. It means that all functionality is implemented and delivered in components that are known as Modules.
A module is a logical group – a directory containing controllers, services, views – that are related to a specific business feature. In keeping with EverShop’s commitment to optimal modularity, a module encapsulates one feature and has minimal dependencies on other modules.
