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?
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.

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.
|Name||Based on||Version (Dec 2020)|
