XarigamiND - Xarigami CMS updated for PHP 7.2 (2020)

Xarigami is an open source CMS, originally based on Xaraya CMS 1.x branch. Xarigami was last updated in 2014, which makes it incompatible with new PHP versions.

I've created a fork from last public 1.5.5 release, with no source code history available. (The original Monotone repository is not online.) I've updated several third party components to latest versions and udated the Xarigami core system and most modules to work with PHP 7.2. Meanwhile fixed many other problems reported by PHP7 analysis tools.

Please find XarigamiND on GitHub.

The online payment integrates with several payment providers, so that Ezee-e e-cigarettes can be purchased across Europe, and from USA to Japan, even an Arabic version is in the making (yes, Right-to-Left text).
