What is Magento?
Magento is an open-source e-commerce application that allows you to create webshops. We often speak of a frontend (the
storefront where customers buy products) and a backend (the Magento Admin Panel where customers and products are being
managed). The open source bit refers to the fact that the source code of Magento (PHP, HTML, CSS, JS, XML, and others)
is distributed under an open-source license (OSLv3) that allows anyone to reuse the code and make changes to it. This
open-source aspect has led to the massive popularity of the product Magento so that we often use the word Magento to
refer to either the product, the community around it or both.
Magento was started by a company called Varien, and with Magento version 1 (first released in 2008), popularity began to grow.
Magento version 2 was first released in November 2015 but faced a problematic adoption because of its complex
architecture and outdated features (KnockoutJS, RequireJS, Zend Framework 1). On the storefront part,
this led to various new frontends. In 2018, Magento was acquired by Adobe. Later, Magento Enterprise was integrated
into the Adobe cloud as Adobe Commerce Cloud, while the Magento Community Edition was relabeled Magento Open Source. In
the community, there was uncertainty whether Adobe would maintain Magento Open Source in the long run in the way
the community would see fit. This uncertainty led to a community initiative called Mage-OS.
