Let's say I have another PHP application that I've coded for a customer, but want to show products out of the OpenCart install that's in the subdirectory /cart. Is there a way to show products by category? I mean, is it a process where I include an object library and then call object methods? Does one exist? Or, must I go direct to the MySQL database?
Note, I'm not looking for building a template. This is a separate PHP application entirely and I want to show products from the catalog in it.
