The Github link and Stars for practical-aspnetcore is the same as eShopOnWeb 🙂

Thanks for pointing out. It has been corrected now.

Hi!

I think after over 4 years of development, it’s worth to mention GrandNode. If it’s possible to add it to that list, it would be fantastic! Below you can find information about it in the same pattern that you’ve provided.

GrandNode
GrandNode is the most advanced and modern e-commerce platform built on the newest version of .NET Core and MongoDB. The highest code quality, combined with the detailed testing approach and with a pinch of a huge number of features is a recipe for success. No more need to create store with enormous number of third party plugins, rely on the widest range of implemented functionalities at the market.

Domain: E-commerce
Type: Real-time application
License: GPLv3 license plus the “GrandNode – powered by nopCommerce” text requirement on each page
GitHub: https://github.com/grandnode/grandnode
Stars: 1k

Yeah, Grandnode is worth mention IMHO… One more thing: SimplCommerce is not microservices (not anymore at least)

@Leonardo – At the time of writing this article it was, might be recently they have changed architecture. And still it is worth to have it as a reference.

Hi ,
Is there an open source in .Net for shipping and logistic purposes ?
Thanks

HI Evad,

I couldn’t find much for your domain, You can check out this if it helps
https://github.com/topics/supply-chain-management

Also can check out this, although it is not specific to ASP.NET Core
https://www.goodfirms.co/blog/best-free-open-source-logistics-software

NopCommerce/SimplCommerce might also have a submodule/external plugin related to Shipping and Logistics.

Thanks,
Bharat
