Magento’s layout system has been vastly improved in Magento 2 to be more accessible, more powerful and to be more streamlined. But, for some reason, only a very small subset of layout functions is made available for use in Magento 2 Admin (category layout XML updates, to be more precise). In this article, we’re going to show a very simple way of bypassing this pesky restriction.

Layout update restrictions in Magento 2 Admin

In the interest of keeping the example simple and straightforward, let’s say we want to remove the page title element from a specific category. In Magento 2 admin, in the category layout update XML field we add the following line.

<referenceBlock name="page.main.title" remove="true" />

And when we click save, we get the following error:

Please correct the XML data and try again. Element ‘referenceBlock’: This element is not expected. Expected is one of (referenceContainer, container,…

Aufgrund der wachsenden Anzahl an Kanälen und diffusen Nutzergruppen werden Online-Marketing Kampagnen immer komplexer. Reine SEA-Kampagnen reichen schon lange nicht mehr aus, es braucht einen komplexen Marketing-Mix, in dem jede Maßnahme eigene Ziele verfolgen kann. Um sicherzugehen, dass solche großflächigen Kampagnen rentabel bleiben, müssen Plattform-Betreiber ein zielgerichtetes Controlling-System einsetzen, mit dem sie sämtliche Marketingmaßnahmen analysieren

The Fastly CDN will sometimes return a 503 error due to various issues that can occur. The generic text associated with a 503 error is “Service Unavailable” and it can mean variety of things. This default error response can be confusing to the customers and have a basic look and feel.

This guide will show you how to set friendly or prettier 503 custom error page through Fastly module which will be served when:

  • When origin returns a response status greater than 500
  • When origin is down (i.e unhealthy, timeout, etc)

To set custom Error page, go to:

Magento admin > Stores > Configuration > Advanced > System > Full Page Cache > Fastly Configuration

Under the Fastly Configuration, click on the Error/Maintenance page:

Reserved Words in Magento 2 URL  Paths:

A StackExchange self answer where I use a plugin to work around the reserved-PHP-symbol-in-class-name problem that can plague Magento 2 URL routing. What’s extra baffling about this is Magento has a fix coded up, but only applies it to one URL segment.

I suspect this is less baffling if you can gives up the idea that Magento 2 should retain its the rapid application prototyping roots of its ancestors.

Magento 2 - Form Validation:

A StackExchange post that contains most (all?) of the CSS classes that can control Magento 2’s form validation. Magento seems to apply the validation rules on all form submits – although I haven’t dug too deeply into that one so caveat emptor etc.

Also, a bonus for folks who read these Tumblr desciptions — here’s a quick bit of javascript that will take M1 style HTML and make all the fields required in an M2 context.

require(['jquery'], function($){ $('.required-entry').each(function(key, element){ $(element).attr('required','required'); }); });

Useful if you have a complex form built with a combination of raw HTML, PHP in phtml, and PHP in class files (i.e. – if you don’t want to track down and change ever class="require-entry" to required=required)

I use FHEM as the engine for home automation tasks on my Raspberry Pi. This is how to build and run FHEM as a container in Docker on your Raspberry Pi Zero, Pi2 or Pi3.

fhem docker container installation

Install Docker

Installing Docker is a no brainer

curl -sSL | sh sudo usermod paj -aG docker reboot Install docker-compose

Docker-compose makes building, starting and stopping Docker containers really simple.

apt-get -y install python-pip pip install docker-compose Build the container

Pull the container build files from github and run docker-compose build to build the container image.

git clone cd docker-rpi-fhem docker-compose build Start the container docker-compose up -d Connect to FHEM

Our design team switched to working in Sketch a while ago but it wasn’t until version 43 we really started seeing some opportunities to change our workflows more significantly. It was also an opportunity for more designers to work on the same project as well as collaborate with developers more easily.

The case of version 43

With Sketch version 43, Bohemian Coding quietly announced – a revised file format. Behold. They introduced a new file format that allows reading and writing .sketch files manually or programmatically and go from Sketch straight to implementation. What does that mean for our workflow? Sketch had a file format that was workable not only from the design side but developer side too.

Earlier articles in this series included server side javascript that looked like this var http = require('http'); That is, we used a function named require to load a javascript module. A module is a way to organize and load other javascript code in a way that doesn’t conflict with the code in your current file. As PHP programmers, we don’t get code modules. PHP’s include and require statements allow us to organize our code into files, but those files are all mashed together in one global namespace. PHP namespaces came close to giving PHP programmers modules, but incomplete functionality and […]

This entry is part 2 of 2 in the series Modern Javascript for PHP Developers. Earlier posts include Modern Javascript for PHP Developers. This is the most recent post in the series. Last time we investigated the basic execution flow of a server side NodeJS program. Our program responded directly to an HTTP request sent by a web-client. Most NodeJS programs aren’t written like this — instead, they use a routing framework of some kind to help separate requests by their URLs and other request parameters. Today we’ll look at one of the most popular routing frameworks, Express. This article […]

Hi, I'm Sophie and I started at Meanbee as a Project Manager over 4 years ago. Back then it was 5 developers and myself trying to navigate the path of a small start up. Over the years we have honed our workflow and project management process; which I would like to share today. We started investigating Agile not long after I started and found it was a good fit for our business and the majority of our project work. We try to use the framework of Agile to influence our day to day project management and to organise this we use Atlassian's Jira & Confluence software.

One of our most significant changes to the business was moving all of our clients are on to a monthly retainer which allows us to block book time in to work on their sites. It works well as it gives both us and the client a timeline to work with and allows us both to get organised. It also means that the level of work being done is consistent and we can plan big ticket items well in advance.
