I’m happy to announce a new chapter in my Leanpub published book, No Frills Command Line Magento. The new chapter Built in Shell Commands covers the three
shell commands that ship with Magento. You’ll learn how to clean log files, reindex the site, and use Magento’s compiler to speed up your system — all without ever looking at a browser window.
Already bought No Frills Command Line Magento? Just head on over to Leanpub and download a new copy, 100% free. Haven’t purchased a copy? Eleven dollars gets you a great first Magento book covering the
n98-magerun tool, and access to future updates covering all aspects of Magento command line development.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention this is the second book in Pulse Storm’s No Frills Magento series. The first, No Frills Magento Layout, is still as relevant today as the day it was first published. Whether you’re using an up-to-date Magento 1.8 system, or you’re stuck on a duct tape and bubble gum Magento 1.4 system, No Frills Magento Layout will give you the background you need to make sense of Magento’s powerful (but complicated) layout XML system.
Content Returns Soon!
On a personal note, I’ve been knee deep in some end-of-year consulting. New, fresh Magento content will return here shortly, starting next week with a writeup of the Copious Scaling Magento talk.
