Merx Plainkit (e-commerce)

Hi there,

I’m trying to make this plugin work:
Download: GitHub - wagnerwagner/merx-examples: Switch branches to see other examples

When I run this locally, I get “This page isn’t working”.
I also noticed the index.php is in a public folder, which is unusual for Kirby.

Can someone help me out?
Much appreciated!

What is your local dev environment? The Kit uses a public folder setup, so your local host has to point to this public folder.

Mamp pro: http://localhost:8888/merx-examples-plainkit/

If I go to http://localhost:8888/merx-examples-plainkit/public it should work? (But it doesn’t)

So I download the lasy Kirby 3.6 and replaced the Kirby folder in the Merx project.
Now I get this error: see attachment.

Can you get it to work locally?

It looks like Merx is missing. Please check site/plugins/merx.

You can install Merx manually by downloading Merx and put the files into site/plugins/merx.

Alternatively, you can clone the Git repository as described in the installation instructions. With git submodule init/update Kirby and Merx are downloaded automatically into the correct directories.

git clone plainkit
cd plainkit
git submodule init
git submodule update

Perfect, I added the latest kirby folder in the root folder and the latest merx folder in the plugins folder. Works now!

Im a step closer now, the homepage loads… but when I click “add”, I arrive on this page: see below
Am I missing something?

I believe there is a route somewhere missing. It might be good to have a look at the starterkit at to get a better feeling how this would work.

Im trying but it’s not working: Merx Starterkit / E-commerce (cart problem)
