You have probably heard of PHP framework called Symfony, today I will share my and Inchoo’s experience with this great framework. You can basically do anything in Symfony, but the most important question you should ask yourself is: Should I use Symfony for my application? In order to help you answer the question, I will try to explain basic concepts, give my thoughts and share some experiences in eCommerce development.

What is Symfony?

Symfony is one of the most powerful PHP frameworks today. Because of that many applications are using its components, and many of them are built as Symfony application. The actual definition goes as follows;

“Symfony is a set of reusable PHP components and a PHP framework to build web applications, APIs, microservices and web services.” (https://symfony.com/what-is-symfony).

One of the best features is the reusable PHP components, which work as standalone libraries. You can find…

Why Does “=” Mean Assignment?:

My favorite part of this too-brief foray into the history of = as an assignment operator is how crazy keyboards were in the 60s and 70s were.

Magento 2 is known to be a powerful and feature-rich eCommerce platform. It delivers decent page load times but might be quite sluggish under heavy customizations.

Part of the performance problem might be a poorly developed custom theme. On one hand the default Luma and Blank themes are quite fast. On the other hand some of the customized themes are slow and could make your online shop a nightmare to buy from.

I will share a few tips to optimize any M2 theme and make it faster. The tips are all field-proven and they really work. I have used them in various projects to make Magento 2 sites deliver decent page load times.

7 Tips to Speed Up Magento 2 Theme
  1. Never load Magento models in a loop.
  2. Minify HTML.
  3. Never use JS bundling.
  4. Merge and Minify CSS/JS.
  5. Avoid CSS/JS frameworks.
  6. Optimize Images.
  7. Keep the number of 3rd-party extensions to a minimum.

Homebrew Shuffles PHP Support:

Gripng PSA follows. Homebrew, the really great package manager and services system for MacOS, has recently shuffled around thier support for PHP. It sounds like the main PHP packages are being pulled into the core repository, but that extensions (mcrypt, memcached, etc.) are being dropped and users will need to install these via pecl. On its face this sound like “the right” thing to do — support the core language, as well as the platform’s tool for compiling extensions. In practice, I have meh feelings about how well this is going to work. Building things directly on OS X and […]
