Category: Programming Quickies

Back in they day, I ran a Tumblr blog named Magento Quickies where I’d post shorter, less in-depth posts about my travels through Magento’s source code. This Programming Quickies categories is the successor to that Tumblr blog. You’ll find all the old Magento Quickies content here, as well as new short posts about programming in general.

This section has its own RSS feed, the old Magento Quickies feed should should be redirecting, and we’re cross posting notifications for new posts over to magento-quickies.tumblr.com. In other words, you shouldn’t need to know any of this, but the duct tape that keeps the internet held together isn’t aging well, so your mileage may vary.

Below you'll find all the Programming Quickies articles on the site.

Commerce Bug 3.2.4 Released!

Just a quick note that a new version of Commerce Bug (3.2.4) is out in the world. This release fixes a small bug where the jsTree elements in the KO Scopes tab could interfere with the styling of jsTree elements that core Magento used in places like the Access Control Roles tree. If you follow my feeds on Stack Overflow or Twitter you [...]

Changing WordPress Host Names

Recently I was moving a few of the websites and web applications I run on my laptop from .dev domain names over to .localhost domain names. The .dev top level domain became a real thing a few years back. Google bought it, started using it, and (most importantly) browsers started automatically redirecting .dev domain names from http to [...]

Composer Virtual Packages

The KnpLabs/php-github-api project was invaluable to me during my recent composer/Magento research. GitHub offers both REST and GraphQL APIs that you interact with via HTTP, but it’s often easier to use these sorts of APIs with a package that gives you classes or functions that handle the HTTP POSTing and serializing of the data. [...]

Magento Javascript Bundling

Putting aside my feelings on folks opting to distribute information via gists instead of their own websites, this gist from Andrew Levine does a great job summarizing the problems and challenges with efficiently distributing javascript via Magento 2’s standard systems. He includes some of the projects folks use to work around these [...]

BASIC Nostalgia

I was minding my own business when the internet threw these old “Micro Adventure” books in my face, and I was hit with a flood of old memories. Pre “Hunger Games style” YA books, written in the second person, with basic programs interwoven into the ludicrous-to-adults adventure stories. That led me down the [...]

The Code Generation that Never Was

Today’s link comes via Process Eight, via my Patreon slack room. It’s slides from a old Magento 2 talk, made prior to the release of Magento 2. The talk itself seems to have been taken offline. The code generation the slides refers to is Magento’s automatic code generation that happens behind the scenes when you use a [...]

The Pestle Documentation Project

Back when I still had some hope Magento 2 would be the same sort of open-source-for-everyone platform that Magento 1 was, and I was working my way through writing the Magento 2 for PHP MVC Developers series, I was simultaneously developing pestle, my command line tool for generating Magento 2 modules. As time went on I realized the [...]
