Magento 2 interconnectivity: gRPC or GraphQL?

Magento 2 interconnectivity: gRPC or GraphQL?

Written by Jisse Reitsma on September 29, 2022

When I slowly got to understand to GraphQL, it made me enthousiastic: The graph allow not only for headless frontending but also for connecting backend services (as long as they support GraphQL). But then gRPC popped up on the radar. Is it there to replace GraphQL? And what does that tell about the future architecture of Magento?

Give me some Slack

Give me some Slack

Written by Jisse Reitsma on September 26, 2022

There was a time I could open up one or two Slack spaces and consume the news. But long gone are those days. There are dozens (?) of chat spaces to keep track of. And it seems a sign of the fragmentation of the Magento community.

The other frontends of Magento

The other frontends of Magento

Written by Jisse Reitsma on September 17, 2022

When dealing with Magento frontending, in the past we always found this to equal the Luma stack. Nowadays however, alternative frontends like Hyvä, Adobe PWA Studio and VueStorefront are mentioned more than Luma. But the story doesn't end there. There are various other alternative frontends to consider as well.

Review of GraphCommerce

Review of GraphCommerce

Written by Jisse Reitsma on September 8, 2022

A new PWA is in town: GraphCommerce. It is based on React, TypeScript and NextJS, open source and using the GraphQL Mesh. It offers plenty of features, but it might not be for the React novice. Here is a review of what I like, dislike and foresee.

ElasticSearch cluster health is yellow, which is ok?

ElasticSearch cluster health is yellow, which is ok?

Written by Jisse Reitsma on August 31, 2022

ElasticSearch is nowadays everywhere in the ecosystem of Magento (and Shopware slowly as well). With Magento 2.4, ElasticSearch was added to the system requirements. But even though numerous developers are using ElasticSearch in production and in development, it is quite common to see that the ElasticSearch cluster to be yellow in color. Is this ok?

Comparison of Vue Storefront for Magento and for Shopware

Comparison of Vue Storefront for Magento and for Shopware

Written by Jisse Reitsma on August 18, 2022

Recently - end of July - the Magento 2 integration of Vue Storefront 2 saw the daylight (well, it was already out there but July 20th marked the first stable release). Because of this, I felt it was a good idea to compare the integration with Magento 2 with Shopware PWA (the Vue Storefront 2 integration with Shopware 6). Apples and pears.

Magento 2 robots router horror

Magento 2 robots router horror

Written by Jisse Reitsma on August 9, 2022

Some parts of Magento 2 are oriented towards flexibility, others seem to have been designed to cause headaches. One of those areas that causes me to frown is the Magento 2 robots router. Here's why.

Preannouncing Yireo Academy 2023

Written by Jisse Reitsma on July 30, 2022

I've been eager to pick up on a specific problem that all agencies face: How to get new developers? Many years ago, I organized a summercamp with weeks on a row dedicated to train new developers. And I'm happy to announce that in Q1/Q2 2023 I'm going to do this again: Yireo Academy 2023.

At last, Vue Storefront 2 integrates with Magento

At last, Vue Storefront 2 integrates with Magento

Written by Jisse Reitsma on July 21, 2022

Vue Storefront has been around quite a bit: Its first public releases (version 1) dates back to 2017 and it had an integration for Magento 1 and Magento 2. However, the architecture of VSF1 was lacking. But now the wait for something better is over: The VSF2 integration with Magento 2 is there. And it looks very promising.

Packagist stats are not sales stats

Written by Jisse Reitsma on July 17, 2022

If you are creating open source PHP packages, distributed via composer, it is nice to know their popularity. For this, the Packagist statistics could be used ... a bit. This blog rambles on about how these stats could be misleading.

Sponsor me via GitHub Sponsors (or buy me a coffee)

Sponsor me via GitHub Sponsors (or buy me a coffee)

Written by Jisse Reitsma on June 21, 2022

I almost feel like a douchebag posting this. But the reason comes not from a monetary need, but from repeated requests by fellow developers in the Magento community that were wondering how they can give back something to me. So here it is: You can sponsor me. If you want. Via GitHub Sponsors or alternative means. If you want.
