Woocommerce Tool Library?

Hi! We, York Collective, have been looking at the different platform options for a library of things/tool library, does anyone have any insight into the feasibility of using woocommerce? There’s a hire shop woocommerce tutorial, so it can’t be too hard, right?

We’re a cycle courier cooperative, members of Coopcycle. The reason for wanting to use WordPress/Woocommerce is that we have a WordPress plugin for integration with the Coopcycle platform.

Hi @MattN, would you mind to write down a list of the “different platform options” that you looked into?

Is this list something we could add to https://github.com/awesome-selfhosted/awesome-selfhosted ?


It might be worth asking here, https://wickcuriosityshop.net/collection/tool-library to see how they did things. :smiley:

@MattN I don’t know much about your specific use case for a tool library but we very much recommend the WooCommerce/Wordpress for shop type thing. It just works :tm: (most of the time) and most of the tools are widely used.

I posted a request on my personal Mastodon account about your question. I’ll let you know if anyone replies.
