An Extension of the 2017 Magento Masters Yearbook
Among a long list of podcasts that I listen to daily, there is one that I enjoy with extra love and attention – a weekly episode of Magetalk with Kalen Jordan and Phillip Jackson.
If you are reading Atwix blog, you are most likely also a fan of these two guys, who are always on top of the game when it comes to the latest Magento news. Sometimes you even get to know things you are not supposed to know. There is even a conspiracy theory that Phillip has discovered a Magento secret so deep and dark, that Magento had to make him an MC of Imagine 2018, grant him Magento Master for the third time, and even sent Mark Lavelle to his shower – all to keep Phillip quiet.
The very first time when I heard an episode I remember Kalen asking listeners to leave a 5-star review of the podcast. But this is a one-time thing that you can do to show love and support. So we decided to go an extra mile and give…

When building a custom theme for Magento, it’s important to follow best practices for how the system is designed to be extended. Magento 2’s frontend is significantly different than that of Magento 1, so even for seasoned Magento developers, there are plenty of things worth noting.
This article is not an exhaustive step-by-step guide to frontend customization. It’s primarily meant to outline the basics for how the system is structured and how to best extend it, as well as to serve as a reference for various theme topics. In general, Magento’s official DevDocs are a good resource for specific tasks.
Quite often Magento developers face a problem with accessing custom attributes during product collection loading. For example, when you try to get a product from a quote or a wishlist item. As the result, we’ve noticed some interesting workarounds to bypass the problem and to access the attribute value at any price, like repetitive product loading etc. However, there is a proper way to make these attributes accessible. We would like to tell more about it.
As you know from Magento 1 – custom attributes are not loaded by default when you work with a quote. There is a simple way of accessing a custom attribute on checkout/cart. Magento 2 uses a similar approach which is even more flexible and extensive.
Let’s create a simple module which provides a custom product attribute with product_brand code. The install script for the new…

A new security patch SUPEE-10570 for Magento 1 was released on Feb 27th 2018. It is affecting ~60 files of Magento Open Source (Community Edition) and ~90 of Magento Commerce (Enterprise edition). Let’s review what actual changes and improvements are behind those files.1. Store name vulnerability
Most of the changes are related to the ability to inject some malicious code into a Store, a Website or a Store group name. These names are used on the numerous admin pages, as most of the entities are somehow bound to the Store or Website. So all of the admin grid columns and store selectors on the admin forms were supplied with HTML escaping. The list of changes is pretty big and consists of:

2017 has truly been the year of Community Engineering for Magento. For many years we’ve been hearing voices from the Magento community on how great would it be if we were allowed to work on fixing bugs and improving Magento core code… And now we’re living this dream. Moreover, this dream already delivers: 24% of the code shipped by Magento in 2017 came from the community. And all this came from 511 unique contributors. Impressive, isn’t it? And what’s helped the success?
In my opinion, a big part of the Magento Community Engineering triumph came from the Contribution Day events. Those events mainly took place in a number of European cities, featuring Ukraine as a record-setting country, having had at least 4 of them, including the one we’ve hosted at our Khmelnytskyi office back in November during the…

What’s the Magento community like in Germany?
It’s exciting! There’s finally some movement to upgrade to Magento Commerce 2. Germans don’t usually adapt to new things easily, or change our way of working very quickly. Now people are finally ready to tackle it. There’s a lot of meetups and events going on.

When I found the PHP Internals site a few months back, I noticed there was a small credit at the bottom. Built by Thomas Punt & Liam Mann Some Googling showed that Thomas Punt had written this How PHP Executes — from Source Code to Render article for sitepoint. While the article was accurate, like a lot of pro internet content it was a breezy, high level read that didn’t set out to get into the specifics of how all these systems worked. Fortunatly, my Where’s the php-src/PHP-Internals Main Entry Point question over on Stack Overflow got a great response […]
