What Is Vanilo?

Vanilo is an E-commerce Framework for Laravel. Vanilo to Laravel is like Magento to Zend or Sylius to Symfony.

Is It Ready For Production?

Yes.

Starting from as early as v0.2 there has been a well-defined upgrade path up until the current latest version.

Refer to Release Notes for more details.

Why Another E-commerce Package?

Shortly, because back in 2017 there was no decent one particularly for Laravel. There's a slightly longer article on medium about why it came to life.
