Zencart’s inventory management is bulky and can sometimes take way too long to do really simple things – like changing the stock of many items at once.
To fix this, we’ve made an admin page calles easy_update.php that can do lots of stock changes at once, as well as organize products by stock, ordered but not shipped, and # of people subscribed. This is our daily go-to for the store inventory ‘health’ – letting us know whats the most important thing to get back into stock at a glance
Some of the people and companies that make/ship/kits and even compete with us, think we’re crazy for giving away core parts of our business like this. Easy Update is one of those – enjoy, go make an amazing open-source hardware business folks 🙂

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
