In the begining (or near enough to it), PHP had a set of functions for talking to MySQL databases — mysql_connect, mysql_query, mysql_.... While newer database APIs like the mysqli_ functions and PDO came along these older functions hung in there and remained hugely popular right up until the end. The end being their removal from PHP in version 7.2. There’s a lesson here about the value of being first and how hard it is to depreciated code. There’s also a lesson in never letting go — this library is a drop in replacment for the old mysql_ functions. The […]

Ein tiefergreifendes Problem, welches uns mittlerweile mehrfach bei der Nutzung von Magestores Giftvoucher-Extension (M1) aufgefallen ist: Die Darstellung der Gutscheinseite ist anpassungsintensiv. Installiert man die Extension, fallen mehrere Dinge auf, die nicht so einfach zu beheben sind: Wird immer zuerst (sehr kurz aber gut wahrnehmbar) das Standard Amazon Template geladen, angezeigt und dann durch den...

I don’t have any first hand experience with it, but Moltin’s a new-to-me API Only ecommerce service/start-up. API only meaning there’s no UI, just REST endpoints for you to call and perform the basic operations of any ecommerce system. If you only have shallow knowledge of other open source and commercial ecommerce software you might wonder how something that’s API only is competing with platforms that have a prebuilt UI and an API. If you’ve actually used those APIs you probably don’t wonder that. It’s closed-source so mostly a curiosity to me. That said, its existence is a testament to […]

When new Adwords interface first launched, everyone had an opinion on it. Some people liked it because it was cleaner and had some amazing new features, other just hated it because it was still in beta and had some pretty annoying bugs, but all of us just tried to learn to navigate through it before it’s too late. We knew that the day will come when Google will replace the old interface with this new AdWords experience (and also rebrand its service into Google Ads).

And the day has come since Google just announced that starting this month, they’re replacing the previous experience with the new one, which means that we won’t be able to switch between two interfaces depending on which task we’re performing (and let’s admit it, we still do that occasionally). Now is the time to fully embrace the new AdWords experience and get ready for…

I just released version 1.4.3 of pestle over the weekend. Mostly a maintaince release and tightening up things I stumbled across while working through the Learning Magento with Pestle screencast series with my patreons. We’v also got a few additional contributors to the project. Pestle is a command line framework I built to manage all my one off shell scripts, and happens to include a bunch of Magento 2 code generation tools. If you work your way through my Magento 2 tutorials you’ll encounter pestle pretty quickly.

About a Stream

Twitch is a live streaming platform which started life in 2011 as justin.tv and is now owned by Twitch Interactive, a subsidiary of Amazon. The site primarily focuses on video game live streaming but can be used to stream just about anything (within the Twitch terms and conditions) including creative content, “in real life” streams, and more recently music broadcasts. Twitch offers successful streamers the means to monetize their streams via two levels of partnership as well as adverts and donations. There are many full time professional game streamers earning a substantial income from Twitch live streaming.

Alas – I am not really a gamer, I played Doom in the 90’s and that’s about it. As a hobby music producer and wannabe…

Pestle (my PHP command line script frameowrk and Magento 2 code generation tool) has has a bash tab completion script for a while, but I finally wrote up some basic instructions for using it in the pestle README. It’s super annoying that MacOS doesn’t ship with the more robust bash-completion program installed by default, but that’s I guess that’s *nix life in 2018.

All orders have an order status that is associated with a stage in the order processing workflow.
The state describes the position of an order in the workflow. By default, Magento store has a set of predefined order statuses and order state settings. All the available order statuses can be found in admin panel under Stores -> Settings -> Order Status. Sometimes we need to create a new order status and state. Let’s figure out how to create a new order state and status programmatically in Magento 2.

The order statuses are stored in sales_order_status database table while the order states and their bindings to statuses are defined in sales_order_status_state table. We will need to create a simple setup script in order to add a new order state and status.

First of all we need to create a new custom extension, for example Atwix_OrderFlow. Create a registration.php file in the app/code/Atwix/OrderFlow:

<?php /* File: app/code/Atwix/OrderFlow/…

In the last article we have covered twig templating basics concepts. Now it’s time to extend functionalities, which can be very useful. Twig has a fair amount of built-in functions, tags, filters and operators but in some cases, you will find that not sufficient. We will cover how to extend twig and what can be extended with examples.

How extending works

For extending twig, you will need twig extensions bundle. It’s a separate bundle from twig. It can be installed via composer:

composer require twig/extensions

We will write our code in src/Twig/folder since latest best practices are oriented for the bundle-less applications (https://medium.com/@fabpot/symfony-4-best-practices-b4bbd6a9c994). Once you have installed twig/extensions bundle, you can start writing your code for extending twig. To extend twig we…

This high level history of PHP passed my desk — I didn’t start using the language until version three (and I still, to this day, forget access modifiers on my class method names or type things like public thisIsMyMethod because the typing cadence for defining a method was two words) so it’s nice to have some high level historical gaps covered.

Ein ganz kurzer Beitrag aber immer gut zu wissen. Möchte man für ein oder mehrere Produkte die Produkt-Detail-Darstellung ändern (die z.B. über die app/design/frontend/[Eigenes Theme]/[Ebenso]/template/catalog/product/view.phtml definiert wird), kann man über das Code-Snippet im Produkt unter „Eigenes Layout Update“ seine angepasste und von der Norm abweichende view.phtml laden. Dieses Snippet könnte z.B. so aussehen [crayon-5b33849715a3a679969252/] Damit...
