    Is it possible to find out what scripting language, server frameworks and new mark-up methods are being used on this site?

    For example PHP or Python, Django and Postgres or MongoDB etc?

    From the page source I see html id="XenForo" which is a package based on PHP.

    It's some kind of dashboard package backend where the staff can just upload product? What database would they probably be using? Mongo? Postgres? No way to find out I guess.

    Someone on another forum told me that their registrar owner is markmonitor company which is known for data "spying" and giving data to big corps and that this clothing company is probably protecting the brands of those big clothing companies by selling those same clothes. Anyway OT ;)

    How would they sync the site with their iOS app? Would the app use the same ecommerce gateway etc? I'm really infested to know this connection.

    I sent them an email but no reply.

    Modified Wordpress for the site, backend MySQL? and PHP ( 100% ). Not sure what the forums are? PhPBB mod?

    If you're on Chrome, download the BuiltWith app. It says it's built on Rails.

    Thanks. So does that mean all of the backend?

    Probably. I can't see any reason you'd use two backend technologies together unless you wanted a massive headache.

    Is that common these days? I thought it's mostly php or python for backend.

    Rails is pretty common, and Node JS is becoming pretty popular as a backend technology. I didn't think Python was especially popular compared to Rails.
