Ruby ecommerce options

I am looking into setting up a storefront, what are some good ruby store front solutions, what is everyone using?

I know Substruct - http://code.google.com/p/substruct/ But I never use it, so we can give you an opinion

Unfortunately there are no good e-commerce framework for Rails.

There are 3 as far as I know: - already mentioned Substruct, the most popular; I've tried to customize it once -- very messy codebase, use it only if you like it as-as - Spree (spreehq.org), a bit better, can be used as a starting point - Potionstore (potionfactory.com/potionstore) -- only for selling software.

So, in my opinion, if you need a simple store use one of those as is (or look for carts written in some other web frameworks), but if you need a decent store -- write a custom one.

What is your opinion of using PHP packages instead of Ruby on Rails? It seems they are more mature and possibly easier to implement, especially if you need something quick.
