Installing Slick
  1. Slick. Version in time of writing this tutorial is 1.6.0.
  2. Unzip downloaded folder and copy slick.min.js to app/design/frontend/_YOUR_VENDOR_/_YOUR_THEME_/web/js/
  3. Create or edit requirejs-config.js file in app/design/frontend/_YOUR_VENDOR_/_YOUR_THEME_/web/
  4. Open requirejs-config.js and copy/paste this code: var config = { paths: { slick: 'js/slick' }, shim: { slick: { deps: ['jquery'] } } };
  5. Create “vendor” folder in app/design/frontend/_YOUR_VENDOR_/…

You already know how to create a simple CLI script. The CLI scripts are initialized with a different area – basically, with a separate CLI area\aplication, which lacks the standard frontend\admin localizations functionality. We faced that when developing a script for sending order emails via CLI – the emails were missing translations of the origin of the order. Let’s try to figure out “why?” and “how to fix?”.

The reason of the issue

If you try to check the bin/magento file, you will see that the application is represented by the Magento\Framework\Console\Cli class, while the index.php (or pub/index.php) is using Magento\Framework\App\Bootstrap and Magento\Framework\App\Http:

$bootstrap = \Magento\Framework\App\Bootstrap::create(BP, $params); /** @var \Magento\Framework\App\Http $app */ $app = $bootstrap->createApplication…

With the holiday season coming upon us more quickly than we would like (unless you’re a kid, and many of us are) preparing your site for the holiday season is a required activity. However, there is not a lot of information out there on how to load test your Magento installation well. With that inContinue Reading "Load Testing for Magento"

The sheer volume of data that is produced and made publicly available each day is astounding and is only set to continue growing rapidly. One of the challenges of building upon this treasure trove of information is that the majority of it is unstructured. Traditional computing requires structured data; data that is clearly labelled with every possible annotation that we may be interested in. This isn’t viable and means that traditional computing can not make the most of the information provided.

Are your customers using mobile? Categorically, yes. A recent study from Bain and Company showed that people interact with their phones 13 times an hour. Our mobile devices are integral to how we talk, learn, and increasingly, shop.

After the decision to move to the cloud and determining a cloud strategy, the next step is to carry out a demand analysis, create a system design, and finally set up and test the cloud infrastructure. This all sounds very trivial and is very similar to a dedicated hosting approach, but there are some special points to consider in a cloud environment.

Demand Analysis and Acquisition

In close consultation with the customer, it is necessary to clarify the customer requirements analysis within the scope of the demand analysis. One customer demand is always a high-performance, scalable system at good price conditions (see also the article, “Sustainable Cloud Strategy in e-Commerce”). In order to take this requirement into consideration during the later system design, it helps to use key figures from existing hosting (number of visitors, number of orders, high-performance and weak-performance time windows, etc.) If no hosting is being used or the data was not recorded,…

Hello, in this article we will cover how to add custom entries in existing system configuration located in Stores->Configuration.
We have already covered how to create Magento2 module, so here we will go straight to the point. Replace Inchoo/Test from entries in this article to your module name.

in etc/adminhtml/system.xml inside your module add the following entries:

<config xmlns:xsi="" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:module:Magento_Config:etc/system_file.xs <system> <tab id="inchoo_custom_config" translate="label" sortOrder="100"> <label>Inchoo Custom Config Page</label> </tab> <section id="inchoo_entry_1" translate="label" sortOrder="100" showInDefault="1"…

One may call it Graphics Standard Manual, Identity Style Guide, Brand and Graphics Manual, Branding Manual, Brand book… People call it differently, but they all usually mean the same thing (although we should be careful about using “brand” in naming, cause brand books/manuals dictate not only visual and graphic representation, but the brand as a whole).

We’re basically talking about a set of standards and rules by which we enforce a certain style to be applied on company’s documents, presentations, visuals like posters and flyers, communication strategies or even photos.

It can be as broad as it needs to be to everything we may need to use, but keep a recognizable company style by using the same typography, colors, logos etc.

Web style guide is also a set of standards and rules, but meant to be applied throughout your website to ensure consistency and cohesive experience. It can be a part of a company style guide dictating how the brand…

One thing I breezed by in my recent Modifying a jQuery Widget in Magento 2 article was the whole returns two widgets RequireJS module thing. We mentioned that modules like the mage/menu module will do this. //File: vendor/magento/magento2-base/lib/web/mage/menu.js define([ "jquery", "matchMedia", "jquery/ui", "jquery/", "mage/translate" ], function ($, mediaCheck) { 'use strict'; $.widget(/*...*/); $.widget(/*...*/); return { menu: $, navigation: $.mage.navigation }; }); However, we never got into what it means for a RequireJS modules to return two widgets. We learned if a RequireJS module returns a single jQuery widget, $.widget('pulsestorm.someWidget', /*...*/); return $.pulsestorm.someWidget; and if that RequireJS module is invoked via […]
