CLI access to Magento Marketplace details

CLI access to Magento Marketplace details

So, I wanted to easily see which version of the Magento Framework belongs to which major version of the Magento distribution. For instance, Magento version 2.3.2 ships with the package magento/framework version 102.0.2. How to put a script together that finds this version information automatically? Let's use jq for that.

Microfrontends for Magento 2

Microfrontends for Magento 2

We can agree that the current Magento 2 frontend is hugely complex and outdated. We can also agree upon that PWA and headless in general is the future. But where to start with this migration? This is where I always come in with my term Hybrid PWA.

How big is Yireo?

How big is Yireo?

Often I get the feedback that people thought Yireo was much bigger. I felt that it was time to play open card on the size of Yireo. And to start with the most essential part, which already answers much: Yireo is a sole trader. In other words, the company officially consists of only one person. But there's more.

Review of a bad Magento 2 extension

Review of a bad Magento 2 extension

Periodically, I do code reviews of other extensions, for use in training or just for fun. One extension bumped up on my radar after I asked on the Dutchento Slack about bad modules. I did a quick review and the amount of bad code was staggering. Even worse, this extension was listed on the Magento Marketplace. This blog lists all points I found for the purpose of spreading better practices with others.

A Dutchman went to Italy

A Dutchman went to Italy

This blog comes far too late, but I still wanted to write about this: MageTestFest 2019 took place from March 5th to 8th 2019 (which is now four months ago) in Florence, Italy. Life has been interesting and busy since. Still, I enjoyed this wonderful conference so much that this blog needed to come, even though it is late.

Extending Magento 2 classes by composition

Extending Magento 2 classes by composition

With a Magento 2 DI preference, you can rewrite one class to another: However, once you have your new preferred class in place, you'll still want to build on top of the original class to re-use all of its (public and protected) methods. It is easy to do this by extending the original class. However, composition offers a much neater way.

Local composer development with Magento 2

Local composer development with Magento 2

You have heard the advice already: Use composer. However, I frequently hear that Magento 2 modules are still developed in app/code because of reasons. Often this based upon wrong assumptions. I'll show you why.

Faster Magento 2 Integration Tests

Faster Magento 2 Integration Tests

Testing is important. While unit testing and MFTF should play a vital role in Magento 2, let's not forget about integration tests. When you first run the Magento 2 Integration Tests suite of the Magento core, you will be waiting a long time for things to complete. And slow test runs will keep you from making use of them. So let's see how we can optimize Integration Tests to run as fast as possible.

Presenting Yireo ServerPush, err ... LinkPreload

Presenting Yireo ServerPush, err ... LinkPreload

Already months ago, I developed a module to preload CSS and JavaScript files in Magento 2, giving a performance boost to the waterful of resources, needed to render the HTML document. The module was called ServerPush, but that name lead to confusion: The module is now relaunched as LinkPreload. And it is easy to use.

Smaller Magento 2 images with WebP

Smaller Magento 2 images with WebP

Since already some years, WebP is an alternative image format, developed by Google, to offer the same quality but in much smaller sizes: In short, WebP allows serving much smaller Magento 2 images to WebP-capable browsers. Our Magento 2 extension is now freely available on GitHub. Let's see what is inside.
