 How to Connect with a Niche Audience

As an eCommerce business, every penny counts. If you want to be successful, you have to carefully balance spending money to generate business and the profits you make from your efforts. You have to sell smart and there is no smarter way to sell than to a group of people you know are interested in your product. While it is a simple suggestion, it is a critical component of any business’s marketing plan. If you don’t sell and market to your niche audience, a group of people who share a specific interest, you risk wasting money on marketing to people who may never reach your site. Knowing your niche audience is the first step to a marketing plan that not only increases sales but also builds a brand with loyal customers. How do you determine who those people are? And how…

In 2016 I started developing my own Home Automation systems (HA) using a Raspberry PI, PHP and FHEM. Initially I wanted to just control a few lights using cost efficient RF sockets and this worked really well. Since then I have enjoyed developing my HA system and am always looking for cheaper alternatives to the sometimes extremely expensive solutions you find online or in DIY stores. Last year (2017) I started looking for smart WiFi enabled sockets as a network controlled smart socket is much more reliable and has a wider transmission range than RF sockets. I also wanted to measure air and water temperature and found that the Sonoff TH smart switches were ideal for this.

The Sonoff TH10/TH16 are 90-250V (50/60hz) temperature and humidity monitoring WiFi smart switches supporting a maximum current of 10A (2200W) or 16A (3500W) with two purpose built sensors, one for temperature…

PHP and strace:

Another set of slides from a Benoit Jacquemont talk I would have loved to see. My high level summary Don’t forget that your PHP program isn’t talking with anything directly, all activity goes through the your operating system’s kernel, and there are tools (strace on linux) for looking at the system calls your program is indirectly making Tangentially, I also recently came acros php-strace, a composer package that wraps up the logic of using strace to diagnose PHP segmentation faults.

Es kommt nun immer häufiger vor, dass Magento-Shops für die Versendung von SPAM-Mails versendet werden. Hierzu werden entweder „Fake“-Kundenkonten angelegt und/oder Newsletter-Abonnenten erstellt. Viele fragen sich-während sie sich ärgern- „Warum machen die das?“ oder „Was ist der Sinn?“. Eine klare Antwort kann ich darauf nicht geben aber einen Ansatz: Es werden zwar automatisch von Bots...

Heute erhielt ich mal wieder Neuigkeiten aus der Welt des Datenschutzes mit dringenden Änderungsaufforderungen sowie Empfehlungen wie man DSGVO-konform überleben kann. Während ich mir die Dinge durchlas, entstand Stückchen für Stückchen ein Bild vor meinen Augen. Dieses Bild symbolisiert für mich die Zukunft des Surfens wenn es nach Meinung der „Datenschützer“ und Anwälte geht. Leute,...

Eschewing new in Javascript and Coding Standards:

This Stack Overflow post about some weird differences between direct instantionation of an Array vs. using the new Array constructor function is a great example of why coding standards can be more than just window dressing. It’s not that one of the methods is better than the other, but by chosing one over the other you avoid the mental overhead of accounting for inconsistant behavior in whatever language you’re using.

In this blog post, I would like to share a pretty interesting and not obvious solution on how to join some additional details to cart item block on checkout cart page.

Let’s say we need to add the “Brand” custom product attribute and show its value within a specific block on the product view page and checkout cart page. It’s very simple in the scope of the product page, but how to deal with number cart items on checkout cart page. There are a couple of issues which you may face with. We will cover them further.

Product View Page

If the default product information tab containing the list of visible product attributes is not enough, and you need to use some custom block with its own structure, in some specific place – you can simply retrieve the product from the registry and get the needed attribute value:

/** @var \Magento\Catalog\Model\Product $product */ $product = $this->registry->registry('product'); $brand = $product->…

Modern MySQL and User Authentication:

Given the date on the Stack Overflow post that saved me this is probably old hat for most of you, but it looks like the MySQL configuration provided by Ubuntu 18’s default apt-get repositories defaults to using “the auth_socket plugin”, which links your MySQL logins with your actual system login. Gave me a bit of the get off my lawn once I figured out what was going on.

Magento 2 implements the service contracts design pattern – a set of PHP interfaces that are defined for a module. A service contract includes service and data interfaces, which hide business logic details from service requestors such as controllers, web services, and other modules.

Web APIs in Magento 2 are bound to service contracts via configuration files. The API Data interfaces strictly define the data set available for data object for the entity, return types etc. Basically, the data interface represents the data to be included in the response, when it comes to WebAPI. Third-party developers cannot change API Data interface in the Magento core. So, the only way to affect interfaces using configuration is to add extension attributes. However, there is one requirement – data object to be extended must also implement the Magento\Framework\Api\ExtensibleDataInterface interface.

Let’s imagine we need to add a new “Customer Feedback…
