This one came out of a conversation in my Patreon mentoring Slack room. Someone was having trouble with their Magento 2 object manager configurations (di.xml) not showing up — but only during checkout. Their problem? They were dropping their di.xml files into the frontend folder etc/frontend/di.xml This is good enough to get class preferences and plugins set for the page that renders the checkout, as well as any pages that make ajax requests through a frontend controller. However — the stock Magento checkout application also accesses Magento’s rest API directly, and rest API requests happen in a custom area call […]

When managing projects, one usually focuses on big things: biggest costs, biggest features, biggest risks, etc. The same is with building an eCommerce site – the biggest, most important things are, well, most important.
But large topics are not the be-all and end-all of the project.
In this post, we will illustrate how tiny issues can have an outsized influence on the project. Through analysis of several examples from our experience, we will try to understand how small perturbations shape the course of the project.
So let’s start with something totally relevant, let’s start with – Napoleon.
We all know the story. He conquered Europe, and then turned his sights on Russia. His conquest started with an army of 680 000 men, and in a short time marched into Moscow.…
In this follow up on our first blog post about customising product info tabs in Magento 2 we’ll be talking about reordering tabs. Again it’s a fairly easy task. We already know that we’ll be looking at product page layout and template files in Magento Catalog module.
Standard Magento way for reordering and rearranging elements around the webpage is by modifying layout (xml) files. For that purpose we use move instruction together with a couple of attributes, required ones being:
element – for selecting element to be moved
destination – for denoting destination element
Optional ones, before and after, are used for placing the target element before or after the certain element under the same parent.

Customer Experience Takeaways from Meet Magento New York
I've recently had to create a script to migrate a large amount of data post-deployment. This presented a couple issues; one being that the script needed to be performant, another being that since it took at least a few minutes to run on a couple hundred thousand rows, I needed to display the status of the script for devops so it didn't appear to be hungup or failed.
I resolved on using a combination of chunk and each, and passing through the total number of iterable records by reference. This way the migration script didn't run out of memory, as queries were chunked down to 100 rows at a time. It also allows the use of a simple helper function to output the status to the console.
Without further ado, here you go!namespace App\Console\Commands; use App\Foo; use App\Bar; use Illuminate\Console\…
