ExtDN - Do use composer

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 24 Aug 2018

With ExtDN, we feel the urge that code quality of Magento extensions should be improved. So we sat down and carefully phrased 8 hints for creating proper Magento 2 extensions: The DOs for Magento extension development. Here is a discussion of the first point: To use composer.

Summer of coding

Summer of coding

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 18 Aug 2018

While the heat is striking down on Europe and many are sitting at the pool to chill, my summer is all about coding. I was looking forward to a summer without travels (because I had those earlier this year with dozens of conferences) and with time to work on pending projects. Here is an overview of my summer of coding.

Why is Magento 2 LESS compilation so slow?

Why is Magento 2 LESS compilation so slow?

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 7 Aug 2018

It has been the frustration of Magento 2 frontend developers for years already. And it has surprised me that so little has been written about it: Compiling the default LESS code of Magento 2 is slow, easily taking up to 8 seconds. But why? Here's a summary of an experiment I've run to find out what is the actual problem. Plus some conclusions (and semi-solutions).

Babysteps with PWA Studio

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 20 Jul 2018

Magento PWA Studio is slowly becoming more mature. Nothing to build a production PWA yet with, but enough to play around with as a way of getting used to the technology. Months ago, Fooman wrote a blog on how to setup PWA Studio properly. Here are my additional notes.

Boost MySQL speed of Magento 2 integration tests

Boost MySQL speed of Magento 2 integration tests

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 29 Jun 2018

Magento 2 is built in a modular way and one of the benefits here is that you can easily (?) add your own unit and/or integration tests, to guarantee the quality of your own code. When running integration tests, a test database is set up. However, this process is kind of slow. Here is a little trick to dramatically increase the performance of MySQL, so your integration tests complete within seconds.

Oh my god, a Magento Association?

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 24 Jun 2018

Last Wednesday, I attended a supersecret meeting in Leipzig that dealt with the forming of a brand new Magento Association. And here is a public blog about it. Supersecret? No, of course not. The Magento Association is there for all of us.

Disabling annoying 3rd-party Magento modules

Disabling annoying 3rd-party Magento modules

Written by Jisse Reitsma on 23 May 2018

Since some time now, Magento has been shipping with third party modules, that might be useful to some but are often not needed at all. Modules that you don't use should be disabled. Even worse, some of these modules have caused me (and others) SQL errors while deploying. So let's see how to fix this.
