I use nopcommerce as a framework for other, none e-commerce web pages.
I find the frame work very useful and easy to customize.
I had several request for that slim version and decided to upload it to github
Nop version 3.9 updated for 02/21/17
will try and update it on a weekly bases
took out all e commerce domains part for products and categories
I kept product since its easy to convert product to any other purpose, like article of affiliate web page
hope it help, i use it to all my pages (better than wordpress).
