Calling them Home:

With all the Yahoo and Verizon shenanigans going on I decided to pull my Magento Quickies posts off Tumblr and hold them close again at my personal home page. You can find all the old posts in the Programming Quickies category. DNS is doing its DNS thing, but magento-quickies.alanstorm.com should eventually redirect to that same category page, and all the old URLs should be safely redirected to the right place.

Hello Tumblr denizens! Just a quick heads up – I’m migrating my writing off this blog and onto my main site in a new Programming Quickies category.

If you prefer to see the internet is through Tumblr, don’t worry. While I needed to move old posts off Tumblr I’m setting some IFTTT recipes to cross post excerpts and links from new posts. You’ll miss nothing as we sit here together, hoping Verizon doesn’t leave a trail of destruction in its wake.

I’ll have more to say about this shortly. Until then, be kind to each other.

PHP 7 introduced the null coalesce operator. Basically, it's syntactical sugar and shorthand when checking for the existence of a variable and then falling back to some value.

For example, this small script outputs bar, because $foo is not yet defined.

echo $foo ?? 'bar';

It's the same thing as writing the following, just much more readable and succinct:

echo isset($foo) ? $foo : 'bar'; Objects

What isn't documented anywhere though is how you can benefit from null coalesce when working with objects and arrays. Let's say you are wanting to return a property on an object, but aren't sure if that object exists. You need to check the base object by doing multiple checks on object properties and their children:

class Foo {} $foo = new Foo; echo isset($foo) && isset($foo->b) && isset($foo->b->c) ? $foo->b->c : 'baz';

You can see how it can easily…

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…
