Workarea is meant to be extended and customized to fit merchant needs. It's built as a collection of Rails Engines so the Rails guides on customizing engines apply. Workarea also includes the Rails Decorators to provide a easy and familiar path for Rails developers to customize Ruby classes. To read more, check out our documentation on extension.
Workarea is fairly complex application to host, we recommend our Commerce Cloud hosting.
