A new release for the Magento 1 version is available. The new release provides the installer for the latest Magento versions.

We also added PHP 7.2 syntax check to the travis build pipeline to be prepared for the next Magento 1 release which will be read for PHP 7.2 out of the box.

Please note that we removed “mcrypt”  from list of required PHP modules. This is also needed to be prepared for PHP 7.2. If you are only using older PHP versions you can re-add the check by creating a .n98-magerun.yaml in your home directory with this content:

N98\Magento\Command\Installer\InstallCommand: installation: pre-check: php: extensions: - mcrypt

  • New: Magento (by Bono de Visser, #997)
  • New: Magento (by Joel Lupfer, #999)
  • New: dry-run flag for self-update command (port of M2 project)
  • Add openmage-lts to installable versions (by Daniel Fahlke, #1005)
  • Fix:…

If you are reading this, the holidays are here. Like last year, expect every day in November to generate $1 billion in online sales. Email is a big piece of this billion-dollar pie. Last year, email drove 20% of website traffic during the seasons and accounted for nearly 25% of sales on Cyber Monday. While retailers prepare for the long holiday season, they often neglect some of the nuances that go into creating engaging and conversion-focused emails. With so much on the line, don’t let this happen to you. Here are four ways to create more engaging and effective holiday emails

I’m still finding the PHP Internals Books to be a welcome breath of fresh air. Today is was their instructions on getting a working build enviornment for the PHP-SRC repo up and running. Straight forward, no nonsense instructions. There’s a bit of assuming you know your way around compiling things but that’s always going to be a struggle for software written in traditional languages. Why so many projects don’t include these sorts of documents as part of their source repo continues to be a 20+ year mystery for me.

Most likely, at least once you faced the issue when customer session does not work except an account page etc. And usually, it’s not obvious why. Is it a bug? No, actually that is the case when it’s not a bug, it’s kind of feature.

Public and private content

Magento can distinguish between two types of content:

  • Public – public content is stored server-side in your reverse proxy cache storage;
  • Private – private content is stored client side and is specific to an individual customer.

There are the cacheable and non-cacheable pages. It’s pretty simple with non-cacheable pages. Such pages are not cacheable and can provide dynamically generated private content, unique for one user. The cacheable pages are being served by reverse proxies to more than one user. And it’s very important to avoid caching of the user-specific data on these pages.

Here is the cacheable page checklist:

  • The HTTP GET or…

You probably noticed that Magento PHP 7.2 support patches are available for download HERE (Magento Open Source version).

For Magento Commerce customers, you should find the patches under Magento Commerce 1.x > Support Patches and Security Patches > PHP Compatibility patches in the Downloads section of your account.

We at Inchoo worked on this contribution, so we decided to share a few more words about it, especially because we noticed that Magento released patches in somewhat different format than usual.


Stjepan Udovičić and Tomas Novoselić started to work on those patches with Piotr Kaminski in May 2018.

Big part of the current batch of patches is…

Since Reacticon conference in March, we’ve been eagerly awaiting for a chance to get our hands on the Magento PWA Studio. For the past month or so, we have dived deep into early development release of Magento PWA Studio and wanted to give a general overview of the toolkit.

Yes, you’ve read that right. In it’s core, Magento PWA Studio is a set of tools used for development of React-powered Magento 2 themes, and in this article we are going to see why is that the case. It’s also important to note that Magento PWA Studio uses GraphQL which is part of the development version of Magento 2.3.

The current Magento PWA Studio repo on GitHub consists of several parts (packages):

  • pwa-module
  • pwa-buildpack
  • peregrine
  • venia-…

Thanks to Nicolas Batty (who seems to have the good sense to live offline) for a correction to the old Magento 2: Fixing Area code Not Set Exceptions quickies post. In the original post I’d recomended a fix for area code not set errors in Magento 2 CLI command by doing something like the following public function __construct( \Magento\Framework\App\State $appState, $name=null ) { // don't do this. No really, don't, it's here as a bad example. But why am I even // saying this -- if you're reading this you're probably not to sort to just blindly // copy/paste something. […]
