Vinai Kopp (of magetv fame) just released a small project with an improved cache cleaner for Magento 2, and it includes a file watcher. i.e. if you change a file that typically requires you to clean your cache to see changes, (like a controller or a layout XML file), this watcher will automatically notice and clear your cache for you. It also sounds like the watcher includes some smarts so only the caches you need to to clear are cleared, and it also includes support for the varnish full page cache. I dislike that web development’s gotten so complicated that […]

You are in a hurry and you do not want to manually type indexer codes to reindex? Well sit back and keep reading, you are in for a treat.

By default, Magento has these console commands for the indexer


  • indexer:info – Shows allowed Indexers
  • indexer:reindex – Reindexes Data
  • indexer:reset – Resets indexer status to invalid
  • indexer:set-mode – Sets index mode type
  • indexer:show-mode – Shows Index Mode
  • indexer:status – Shows status of Indexer

So you probably asking yourself why do I need a custom command to reindex required (invalidated) indexers?
Well, we are kinda lazy and this command can save you some precious time you can spend on other things. Instead of writing this command:

bin/magento indexer:reindex customer_grid…

Earlier this year, the rumored M1 end of life was indefinitely postponed. While this came as a relief to some, there are many reasons why you shouldn’t get too comfortable. This blog post will tell you what you need about formulating a proactive migration plan that will let you successfully transition from M1 to M2 prior to EOL.   Magento 1.x EOL and the differences in M1 & M2 “The end of life for Magento 1 will be November 18th.” “Did you know that Magento EOL is scheduled for the end of 2018?” “The M1 EOL is postponed.” “So, the EOL for M1 isn’t happening?” First, let’s clear the air about the specifics of Magento 1.x’s end of life. In 2017, Magento stated its plans to cease production of updates and support for Magento 1 at Meet Magento in Prague. Months later, the prospected EOL date was postponed and it was announced that Magento 1.x support will continue into 2019. Additionally, Magento has committed to an 18-month…

Research is like peeling an onion – the more layers you peel – the more you reveal. You may even find that your idea isn’t as unique as you thought, but still, wouldn’t you like to beat the competition sooner rather than later? Don’t risk learning the hard way – get to know your competition on time. Knowledge is power!

Unfortunately, a lot of times, decisions are made by only cursory examination of the market, but a deep and solid research can bring you a solid grounds for those decisions. Since you’re an online business, your market is the Internet and anyone with access to it is your existing or potential future customer.  If there’s a company in the same market, offering a product or a service similar to yours – they are your competitors.

If you have ever worked in a team or in any other way had to maintain others people code, you already know how important is to write maintainable code. Actually, this doesn’t need to be others people code at all – if you are trying to modify your year-old-code, you may already forgot all the details around it and it may be hard for you to read it, let alone modify it.

Since there are many articles on this topic, I will just mention for you few easy starting tips, something that we always have to teach our interns and junior developers.

Stick to coding standards

Whenever you do some work, try to stick to some coding standard to make your coding style consistent. If you are working with framework, that framework most likely has some coding standard. If not, discuss it with your team as it will make your life easier.

If you are reading this, most likely you are working with Magento. In that case, you should read what…

In the aftermath of the Wayfair vs. South Dakota ruling, ecommerce businesses will be responsible for sales tax reporting and collection in states they sell to, regardless of physical presence. Let’s talk about economic nexus. Ugh, why should I care about Wayfair vs. South Dakota? Wayfair vs. South Dakota was a federal case heard by the Supreme Court of the United States in which SCOTUS ruled that it is within states’ constitutional rights to collect sales tax on out-of-state transactions carried out by online retailers. The 5-4 ruling dictated on June 21st, 2018 directly challenged and overturned the 1992 Quill vs. North Dakota case while simultaneously shifting the understanding of commerce clauses.

Until the June 21st SCOTUS ruling, nexus was historically determined by physical presence–but the age of ecommerce with its burst in online sales and technological advances outdated the 1992 decision…

Zephir is a programming language for building PHP extensions. As in, the .so files that extend the PHP language itself. Normally you need to use the C programming language to create a PHP extension, but Zephir is an intermediate language you can compile down to C code, (using the provided tooling). Its build system also automatically stitches everything together into a compilable/phpize-able extension. i.e. you say zephir build and you have a working extension. The docs are pretty good, although I ran into a few unmentioned gotchas while getting the hello world example up and running. You’ll need to install […]
