Removing ElasticSearch from Magento 2.4

Removing ElasticSearch from Magento 2.4

Written by Jisse Reitsma on September 26, 2020

Ok, this might be click-bait: This blog is not only about removing ElasticSearch from Magento 2.4. It is about removing all search functionality from Magento 2: The quick search, the indexing, the advanced search ... and ElasticSearch. Is that a wise idea? I don't know, but it works for me.

Inviting the US and India to Reacticon 3

Inviting the US and India to Reacticon 3

Written by Jisse Reitsma on September 23, 2020

Reacticon - the leading developer conference on Magento frontend development - is only three weeks away, taking place on October 13th to 15th. Slowly, the program is being put together. But we are aiming for time slots to be choosen in such a way that both the Indian subcontinent and the US of A is able to join. Curious? Keep reading.

Adding Magento 2 ViewModels to widgets

Adding Magento 2 ViewModels to widgets

Written by Jisse Reitsma on September 7, 2020

Instead of extending upon Block classes, ViewModels are forming a new best practice for dealing with adding custom logic to existing templates in Magento 2. Very cool. But unfortunately, this is a bit harder when it comes to widgets. Harder, but only slightly, because of plugins.

The unstable release of Magento 2.4.0 :o

The unstable release of Magento 2.4.0 :o

Written by Jisse Reitsma on September 3, 2020

I've been talking to quite some agencies that have postponed an upgrade from 2.3 to 2.4 until Magento 2.4.1 comes out. Why? Because of the instability that a new major release brings. To quote them. Agencies have learned this from bad experience in the past. I'm not surprised but yet I am surprised. This blog is a humble overview of what kind of (in)stability 2.4.0 might bring.

Reacticon v3 online, v4 moved to 2021

Reacticon v3 online, v4 moved to 2021

Written by Jisse Reitsma on August 7, 2020

Quite some time ago already - maybe about 4 months ago - we decided to postpone Reacticon v3 from June 2020 to October 2020 because of the Corona crisis. We are still in the same crisis and it might well get worse. So it should not come as a surprise when I tell you that - unfortunately - Reacticon will be postponed to June 20201. But that would not be entirely correct.

What is wrong with my Magento 2 replacement packages?

What is wrong with my Magento 2 replacement packages?

Written by Jisse Reitsma on July 24, 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 July 8, 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. So here is the real question: Do you actually need Magento PWA Studio?

Why Magento 2 integration tests might fail early?

Why Magento 2 integration tests might fail early?

Written by Jisse Reitsma on July 2, 2020

I regularly bump into the Magento 2 integration test procedure failing, before it even reaches my own tests. Here are a couple of reasons why things might be failing, partially related to the setup of the testing framework, partially related to the extension code.

Updating Magento tax rates for Germany's temporary tax relief

Updating Magento tax rates for Germany's temporary tax relief

Written by Jisse Reitsma on June 16, 2020

End of May, the German government made a decision to relieve their taxes a bit to help businesses get through the Corona crisis. This starts on July 1st and stops at the end of 2020. How to modify Magento for changes like these?

EmailTester version 1.6

EmailTester version 1.6

Written by Jisse Reitsma on June 2, 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 May 22, 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 May 14, 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.
