What is wrong with my Magento 2 replacement packages?

What is wrong with my Magento 2 replacement packages?

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 24 Jul 2020

For some time, I'm maintaining Magento 2 composer packages that apply the composer replace trick to allow for Magento 2 core modules to be removed again. In the last days, I made some dramatic changes, removing old releases and creating new, upsetting people along the way. What is wrong with me?!?

Do you actually need Magento PWA Studio?

Do you actually need Magento PWA Studio?

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 8 Jul 2020

I'm often being asked whether Magento PWA Studio is ready for building a complete PWA or not. Is it stable enough? Does it have enough features? And the more I try to answer questions like these - me diving into the technical parts of PWA Studio - the more I wonder whether you actually need Magento PWA Studio that much.

Why Magento 2 integration tests might fail early?

Improving Vue Storefront 1 compilation times

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 22 May 2020

Vue Storefront 1 is a great tool for building a lean JavaScript frontend for Magento 1 or Magento 2. However, it has some flaws, one of which being the compilation time of Vue, TypeScript and ES6 code into regular browser code. There is a simple solution though: A custom Webpack configuration.

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 14 May 2020

The GraphQL API of Magento 2.3+ comes with numerous endpoints. However, some of these endpoints offer little protection against bastards that want to abuse this. My new Yireo_GraphQlRateLimiting offers a rate limiting to try to reduce abuse. Let's see why it is needed.

Properly serving static files Magento PWA Studio

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 12 May 2020
