Vinai Kopp (of magetv fame) just released a small project with an improved cache cleaner for Magento 2, and it includes a file watcher. i.e. if you change a file that typically requires you to clean your cache to see changes, (like a controller or a layout XML file), this watcher will automatically notice and clear your cache for you. It also sounds like the watcher includes some smarts so only the caches you need to to clear are cleared, and it also includes support for the varnish full page cache. I dislike that web development’s gotten so complicated that […]

“The end of life for Magento 1 will be November 18th.” “Did you know that Magento EOL is scheduled for the end of 2018?” “The M1 EOL is postponed.” “So, the EOL for M1 isn’t happening?” First, let’s clear the air about the specifics of Magento 1.x’s end of life.

In the aftermath of the Wayfair vs. South Dakota ruling, ecommerce businesses will be responsible for sales tax reporting and collection in states they sell to, regardless of physical presence. Let’s talk about economic nexus.
Ugh, why should I care about Wayfair vs. South Dakota?
Wayfair vs. South Dakota was a federal case heard by the Supreme Court of the United States in which SCOTUS ruled that it is within states’ constitutional rights to collect sales tax on out-of-state transactions carried out by online retailers. The 5-4 ruling dictated on June 21st, 2018 directly challenged and overturned the 1992 Quill vs. North Dakota case while simultaneously shifting the understanding of commerce clauses.

The docs are pretty good, although I ran into a few unmentioned gotchas while getting the hello world example up and running. You’ll need to install […]
It’s easy to add a column to the products grid if a value that you want to display in the column is a product attribute. They are already present in the products grid toolbar under Columns control. You just check/uncheck columns that you want to be displayed or removed from the grid. But what if you want to display values like quantity and website that aren’t product attribute? If you continue to read you will learn how to add values like this to the products grid.
