JavaScript unit testing with Jasmine | Magento 2 Developer Documentation:

Jasmine’s a testing framework for javascript code – I didn’t know until today that Magento 2 had setup a framework for these tests.

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Modern Javascript for PHP Developers. Earlier posts include Modern Javascript for PHP Developers. This is the most recent post in the series. Last time we investigated the basic execution flow of a server side NodeJS program. Our program responded directly to an HTTP request sent by a web-client. Most NodeJS programs aren’t written like this — instead, they use a routing framework of some kind to help separate requests by their URLs and other request parameters. Today we’ll look at one of the most popular routing frameworks, Express. This article […]

Hi, I'm Sophie and I started at Meanbee as a Project Manager over 4 years ago. Back then it was 5 developers and myself trying to navigate the path of a small start up. Over the years we have honed our workflow and project management process; which I would like to share today. We started investigating Agile not long after I started and found it was a good fit for our business and the majority of our project work. We try to use the framework of Agile to influence our day to day project management and to organise this we use Atlassian's Jira & Confluence software.

One of our most significant changes to the business was moving all of our clients are on to a monthly retainer which allows us to block book time in to work on their sites. It works well as it gives both us and the client a timeline to work with and allows us both to get organised. It also means that the level of work being done is consistent and we can plan big ticket items well in advance.

This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series Modern Javascript for PHP Developers. This is the first post in the series. It’s getting harder and harder to ignore the modern javascript world.

(Putting this here in an external-memory/thinking-out-loud sort of way)

Prior to Magento 2’s release, Magento executives circulated the idea that Magento 1 would reach its “end-of-life” three years after the release of Magento 2. Magento 2 was released November 17, 2015, which means Magento 1 reaches its end-of-life November 18, 2018.

However – it’s not entirely clear what end-of-life means for Magento 1.

If Magento 1 was a web application, end-of-life would mean the servers would be shut off.

If Magento 1 was a software application that was regularly updated, end-of-life would mean no more updates.

Magento 1 is neither of these.

Making things extra challenging is Magento Inc. itself, as a whole, has been pretty cagey about being pinned down on what end-of-life really means.

End-Of-Life for Community Edition

The Windows Server Essentials Connector is software that lets you connect your PC to a Windows Server 2012 R2. Most commonly it is used by small businesses to connect clients to a Windows Server Essentials Server (formerly Windows Small Business Server or SBS) to perform automated client backups on the server.

For many small businesses this is a good way to automate client backups and it works well, at least it did until Windows 10 was released and the essentials connector software stopped working.

Windows 10 and Windows 10 feature upgrades break the server essentials connector.

Die Maxime eines jeden Unternehmens lautet Wachstum durch Steigerung der Produktivität oder besser des Umsatzes. Dafür müssen Abläufe so effizient wie möglich gestaltet sein, um Wege zu verkürzen und beispielsweise wiederkehrende Bestellprozesse automatisiert zu replizieren. Eine digitale Transformation ist unausweichlich – und wer nicht mitzieht, geht unter. Doch halten digitale Technologien das, was sie versprechen?

(With apologies to whomever originally posted this technique – I can’t seem to find your original article. If you’d like link/credit just let me know)

As companies start to go ahead with Magento 2 builds and Magento 2 upgrades, more an more developers are wondering what to do about the missing code pools from Magento 1. If you’re not familiar with them, code pools allowed you to completely replace a Magento 1 class file with your own version. If you wanted to replace the Mage_Core_Model_Url file at

app/code/core/Mage/Core/Model/Url.php

all you needed to do was put your new file in the local code pool

app/code/local/Mage/Core/Model/Url.php

Behind the scenes, the code pool functionality was just another folder added to PHP’s include_path.

Magento 2 did away with code pools, and this was probably the right call. Code pools created a big problem when it came time for point release upgrades. If…

Amazon offer cloud drive storage for photos free for Amazon Prime customers. For less that 10 yoyos per month you can upgrade to an unlimited cloud drive storage plan.

Yes, I did just say unlimited storage.

This is pretty neat, but I already use an open source cloud storage system on my own cloud server – called er, Owncloud Wouldn’t it be really nifty if I could attach the unlimited Amazon Cloud drive storage to my Owncloud.

Here is how to do it in 5 easy steps:

  1. Sign up for an unlimited Amazon Cloud Drive storage plan at https://www.amazon.de/clouddrive
  2. Install and configure acd_cli
    1. pip3 install –upgrade –pre acdcli
    2. acd_cli -v init

List of mod_security Rules for Magento 1:

A list of instructions from the (semi?) independent Mage Security Council on installing their scanner. This sort of buries the lead – the end of the instructions point off to a list of malware fingerprint, which server administrators can use to block common attacks before they ever reach Magento.

I have been working with PHP for about 6 years now and my first public facing development server is about the same age. It started life as a 32 bit 1GB Linode probably running Ubuntu v10.x, it survived a couple of OS upgrades and even a pseudo kernel shift to 64bit and ended life as a Linode 4096 running Ubuntu 14.x.

Maintaining servers whether they are physical or virtual is a real pain in the neck, as time goes by you develop apps, you install more and more software and your simple php development platform starts to become quite complex. When it comes to a major OS update e.g. Ubuntu 14LTS to 16LTS where mysql and php versions are changing then keeping all your (now live) websites, blogs and apps running can become a real challenge.

In an ideal world you would have multiple servers designed specifically for the apps they are running, in the real world when we are talking about personal websites, blogs and forums everything ends up running on the same server. The…
