EmailTester version 1.6

EmailTester version 1.6

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 2 Jun 2020

Version 1.6 of the EmailTester extension for Magento 2 was just released a little while ago. No dramatic changes. However, there are some really great additions to this productivity tool, that are worthwhile sharing with you via a blog.

Improving Vue Storefront 1 compilation times

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. I've put together a sample config, which I'm happy to share with the world.

Rate throttling for Magento 2 GraphQL

Rate throttling for Magento 2 GraphQL

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

Properly serving static files Magento PWA Studio

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 12 May 2020

This is a big topic, but important nonetheless. When building a Magento PWA Studio, most tutorials out there tell you to either implement things using a Node server or without. But often this includes steps to route requests for static files to UPWARD. Why not use the webserver for this directly?

Disable service workers for the Magento Admin Panel

Disable service workers for the Magento Admin Panel

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 6 May 2020

It is a small annoyance when combining a PWA and Magento within the same hosting environment: The PWA replaces the original frontend and ships with a new Service Worker. But this also activates that same Service Worker for the Magento Admin Panel. Here is a small workaround to disable that service worker.

Limiting GraphQL depth and complexity in Magento 2

Limiting GraphQL depth and complexity in Magento 2

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 29 Apr 2020

Magento 2.3 has added a GraphQL API. However, it allows for certain kinds of queries that might not neccessarily be needed in your own custom headless frontend, but are still executable by any GraphQL client. Let's see how we can limit this, so that the shop stays performant.

Run a test-instance of Varnish for Magento 2

Run a test-instance of Varnish for Magento 2

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 20 Apr 2020

With Magento 2, frontend performance goes up big time if a Varnish server is configured in front of the regular Magento frontend: Static assets are retrieved faster than with a regular webserver. But more importantly . This blog goes through a couple of my personal tricks to run a test-instance of Varnish via Docker, without going full-stack-on-Docker. It is personal, it is sensitive, but maybe it is fun to see how I sometimes cook up things.

Do you need Node on the server to run Magento PWA Studio?

Do you need Node on the server to run Magento PWA Studio?

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 15 Apr 2020

It is question that I'm being asked frequently: When you setup a hosting environment for PWA Studio, do you need Node on the server? Magento itself has responded frequently with an answer that you don't need Node. But often in such a response, technical aspects are missing. Also, answering this question is not that simple at all. Let me have a try at it.
