Git Move

Visit Linked Page

When I’m working solo, (which usually means I’m doing the initial scoping and prototyping of some sort of feature and/or system), my “git workflow” is usually a shove it all into master affair. When I switch off to team work I often find myself in a situation where I’ve done a done of work without branching first. That’s where git move comes to the rescue. Okay, one more… Ever commit something only to immediately realize that you're on the wrong branch? Use "git move <branch>". pic.twitter.com/fKpZTRkdRu — coderabbi™[for rent] (@coderabbi) September 4, 2017

You can find all the old posts in the Programming Quickies category. DNS is doing its DNS thing, but magento-quickies.alanstorm.com should eventually redirect to that same category [...]

Re: A Declarative Approach for Database Schema Upgrades

Visit Linked Page

Re: A Declarative Approach for Database Schema Upgrades It sounds like Magento’s planning a pretty radical overhaul of how it handles schema and data upgrades between versions. The looks to be a fiat from on high (vs. the community driven approach they’ve been using for bug fixes). If you’re making schema/data changes that aren’t in Magento’s core or Marketplace code bases, you’ll want to pay attention to this – your deck chairs may need shifting about.

oddyssey/mailtrap

Visit Linked Page

oddyssey/mailtrap A simple mailtrap extension for Magento 2. Mailtrap is a service that lets you point your development instances at an SMTP server that accepts mail, but doesn’t deliver it. Instead mailtrap collects all the mail in a single INBOX. If you’ve ever accidentally emailed an entire customer list with a subject line like Subject: Testing, hope this s——t works. you’ll instantly see the value. The Magento extension is also a simple example of how to hook into the MagentoFrameworkMailTransport class with a custom preference and change the behavior of the email system.
