"This extension maintains and displays a list of the products a user has recently viewed."

The extension is forked for older version of Spree but need to be updated to work seamless with Spree 2.x. Even if we made the tests pass on Travis doesn't mean that it fully work due to poor test coverage.

We have upgraded most part the extension but due to our schedule we need assistant to write tests due to that it has no real test coverage including required Capybara feature specs due to these confirms that the extension hooks into the Spree version correctly.

But we find that only display a list of recently viewed products for a gem only is quite trivial. So additional functionality should be add to display recently bought products when viewing each product.

Step one

- Update module so it work with changes in Spree 2.x (if needed)
- Update so views and hooks apply seamless into Spree 2.x
- Rspec tests coverage >= 95%
- Feature specs with Capybara so we know it always there
- Some basic Refactor (if needed)
- JS and CSS in views is ugly, try to move these (if possible)

Note: Don't forget to checkout different branches you might find neat things that can be cherry-picked straight into your working clone and save you some time.

Step two

- Bump major version … then
- Add migrations for relationships for new feature
- Add boolean preferences to turn on/off the two features (in spree admin)
- Class decorators etc for the new functionality
- Deface hooks and views (probably you will be able to reuse same code)
- Full test coverage for new features

Note: If Spree core team don't agree on merge new features we just rename the gem and submit pull request with commits before major bump.

Things not included in job

- Translations and other trivial things you can leave behind and we will do commits on this.
