TLDR; There’s a real .dev top level domain that Google owns (and Amazon previously tried to buy), and a recent Chromium nightly (Google Chrome’s browser engine) automatically redirects all .dev domain names to an HTTPs version of the site. Chrome to force .dev domains to HTTPS via preloaded HSTS

A new Magento 1 security patch SUPEE-10266 was released on September 14th of 2017. It closes the ability of an admin user remote code execution, protects from data leaks and fixes some minor issues. Let’s check the main code changes that are included in the patch.1. Admin indirect logging in.
Minor adjustment to the Mage_Admin_Model_Session logs admin user out if the user session data was extracted from the admin RSS. Basically the Mage_Rss_Helper_Data::authAdmin will add an additional flag “indirect_login” to the admin session data. This way, the Mage_Admin_Model_Session will check for that flag during the constructor call with Mage_Admin_Model_Session::logoutIndirect method.2. Injection escape.
A few places with dynamic content were updated with the escapeHtml method call. Those places are:

Laravel 5.5 just recently got released, and ships with the current stable version of Bootstrap, which is version 3. However, Bootstrap 4 recently hit beta, and should now be solid enough to start development with, especially for new Laravel projects that are just now getting started.
Bootstrap 4 can be easily enabled following these steps. First, remove the Laravel-supplied version of bootstrap-sass from npm:
npm uninstall --save-dev bootstrap-sass
Then install the new version of bootstrap from npm. Tether is no longer used with Bootstrap 4, however it is replaced with Popper.js, so let's go ahead and install the popper.js library too:
npm install --save-dev bootstrap@^4.0.0-beta popper.js
The default description, default title, and default keywords input fields in Magneto administration used to create SEO issues for store owners ever since version 1.X of Magento. Magento versions 2.X are no exception to this issue.Why is this an issue?
The SEO best practice for meta descriptions is to have a unique meta description for each URL on your website summarizing the content of that exact URL. When dealing with extremely large data sets it’s usually impossible to write one for every URL so online stores resort to writing a unique one just for category pages, CMS pages, and some very important product pages and leave the rest of them blank.
The issue is, when a custom meta description is left blank in Magento (and in Magento 2), the system defaults to default meta description values. For this reason you’ll see the following in source code:<meta name="description" content="Default Description"/> <meta name="…
Digital devices and channels are constantly evolving, and so are your customers. The way shoppers search online is changing every day.

Magento2 came with very “controversial” frontend architecture approach. We will not discuss that but we will try to explain how to empower current Magento2 UI library to achieve most common frontend task.

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 ”. http://pic.twitter.com/fKpZTRkdRu — coderabbi™[for rent] (@coderabbi) September 4, 2017
This entry is part 1 of 1 in the series Just Enough C for PHP. This is the first post in the series. The funny thing about the C programming language is, if you look hard enough, you can see how it maps out the next 40 years of professional programming. The syntax is the most obvious thing — functions, variables, nested braces, conditionals, loops, indexed lists (i.e. arrays), indexed dictionaries (structs), variable references (pointers), functions-as-variables (function pointers). These are things we all take for granted now, but in 1978 there was no clear consensus on what sort of base […]
