What this product does for you


Productivity Help save time

This tool helps your developers to be better coordinated and maintain your site!
With this module, yours developers save time because it can automate updating to your site.

For example, if your developer must change your database or a functionality of your store, only one file will suffice.


  • Each time the module’s configuration page displays, the scripts in module’s repertory /data will be played in order (SQL or PHP scripts).
    • So, a script that is developed by a developer and committed will be propagated to other developers.
    • Once this script is recovered, if it’s not played on its environment, it will be played. The information to know if the script was played or not is in database at configuration (PLICI_ALREADY_MADE) stored.  So if you just send files to a collaborator, playing the script, this one will automatically upgrade itself.
    • So, we can make a script to add a module and it will be played for all developers.
    • We can also modify a database and it will be sent to all developers.
    • This system allows that all developers have played all scripts on their environment.A chaque fois que les scripts sont joués, le module nettoie le cache de Prestashop.
  • Everytime scripts are played, the module cleans the Prestashop’s cache.
  • This module allows to override others modules
    • By creating in repertory /override/modules, the repertory will be named nameofmodule and in this repertory, the file nameofmodule.php and the class Nameofmodule_ovr.
  • Redefining FrontController to include JS and CSS file of the same name of controller in the repertory of theme.
  • Each override adds static functions like
    • Tools :
      • echoNet that allows to display any variable 
      • pliciTableExists that tests if a table in database exists
    • Module :
      • getInstanceByName that retrieves the instance of a module or its override
    • Hook :
      • pliciDisplayAddon permits to display a module in hook without modifying the Prestashop database
      • pliciExcludeAddon permits to exclude a module in hook without modifying the Prestashop database
  • The override of Db class provides a log / db_requests.log that contains the SQL queries that have encountered an error

The SEO Images (Alt tag) module automates ALT tag creation for product images and produces quality content to improve your site’s page ranking.

  • Decrease the number of you store's abandoned carts by adding a notification that will appear directly in the customer's browser. This module can be installed and configured in just 30 seconds and displays the number of products in a customer's cart next to your store's favicon. It's a discrete and effective nudge to remind users they have a full cart and encourage them to check out!
