After much feedback from the community it was clear that the original idea behind Slatwall, to only operate as a "piggy back" on top of existing inventory management platforms, just wasn't going to cut it. So we have scratched the original code and with the assistance of Sumit Verma we have designed a new Open Source platform that doesn't rely on an additional database system.
While the project is in its infancy we have set up a Code Repository and Wiki with Developer Guide / Product Roadmap which can all be found here: http://github.com/ten24/Slatwall
This new code base is a complete re-design from what Nytro.com is using, and in principle this is really like starting from scratch. We have decided to utilize FW/1, Coldspring & Coldfusion ORM. I encourage everyone to check out the product Roadmap which as of now has an expected public launch of April 1st.
A big thank you to everyone who showed interest in the Nytro.com website and the e-Commerce plug-in that was developed for it. You all provided the feedback necessary to settle on this new version of the software that will I hope be able to be used by businesses large and small. For future follow up please reference the GitHub site.
