Finally – Magento Development Made Easy

If you aren’t a licensed partner to get access to official Magento training, learning Magento is like feeling your way around the dark. You have to Google all day long and more often than not there are two or three ways to do something – which one is best?!

What if you could get a module that:

  • Has beautiful and easy-to-access documentation showing you exactly how to do what you need.
  • Cut your development for new modules in half because you don’t have to figure out which classes to inject, objects to instantiate or repos to access?
  • Was built to use the latest Magento standards, future-proofing your own work? No going back and fixing stuff after a new version release!
  • Helps you to quickly on-board new Magento developers to your team because all the answers they have is answered in the module’s documentation (how do I get a product by SKU, how do I get the current store ID, how do I custom attributes etc.)

I’ve started the basic outline for such a module and would love to hear if you would be as interested in this as I am? Let me know in the comments below.

TLDR; would you be interested in a Magento module that answers all the “how do I…” questions you have about Magento? It does all the heavy lifting in the backend and you only have to call one-liners to do everything you now manually have to figure out on a day-by-day basis.

Not sure where to start. Tips?

I inherited a project that is using the enterprise edition of Magento 2. I have managed to get the project up and running, and now I’m trying to wrap my head around all this.

I come from a Drupal background, where modules extend core functionality, and there’s a theme layer that is generated on the fly. If I am understanding correctly, you have to run a command to “deploy” the code to another directory in your Magento install?

Needless to say, it’s all quite new and I’m needing to get things like the enterprise edition updated to the latest release, and update the modules/extentions/whatever they’re called ASAP.

What’s the best place to start digging in? With the different versions of Magento, and being pretty new to this, I’m a little overwhelmed. But, it seems like the community is pretty nice, and I like that lot.

Magento 2.3 – How to connect Multi-Store to Multi-Source Inventory?

We would like to implement a Multi-Store Implementation where one Store is connected to our Main Warehouse for Online orders while the second store runs our POS system and can only debit stock from our Physical Retail Location’s stock.

Is this something that is possible in Magento where we can implement both Multi-Store as well as Multi-Source model so that I run one unified back end but have it debit from a different physical location depending on where the order comes from?

Is Multi-Store Mode the default setting in Magento 2?

I just started at my second M2 store as ecommerce manager, and I’ve found that our site is in Multi Store mode. I asked my in-house developer if he knew we were in this mode and he said no and didn’t really know anything about the difference.

In my last store, we discovered we were in Multi Store mode about a year after we upgraded from M1 when I stumbled upon the configuration in Stores > Config > General > General > Single-Store Mode: No. It created problems for us related to the import/export of product data over time, which is why I’m concerned now at the new store where I want to begin doing imports to update large swaths of products.

Does an out of the box Magento 2 install set up with multi-store mode?

Can anyone recommend an advanced import/export extension for M2?

Just started at a new store and wanted to get opinions on the best option for a third-party import/export tool. I have experience with Firebear Advanced Import/Export Module at my last store, but it needed a good bit of customization from the developer in order to work right for our use case. Can anyone recommend a solid export/import tool for a run-of-the-mill ecommerce store selling Simple and Configurable products?

Free PWA mega menu’s storefront to get familiar with Magento PWA Studio.

Our team at Ubertheme is sharing our work-in-progress PWA Mega Menu’s storefront for free.

Since Magento PWA Studio is a relatively new solution, we do hope the pwa mega menu storefront gives you one option to get started and interact with the Magento PWA Studio technology stack.

You simply pull the source code of PWA Mega Menu storefront from the repo, follow the instruction. Once done, you should have a Magento PWA Studio instance with UB PWA Mega Menu like the following screenshot:

PWA Mega Menu demo:

(Please note that the PWA mega menu’s backend remains to be based on our existing mega menu demo instance)

What do I still need to regenerate static content in developer mode?

I’ve written this blog post to resolve an issue with symlinks and extensions/themes in Magento (mostly for personal reference). But I’d like to know why it’s required to redeploy static content in development mode. I thought that wasn’t necessary?

Thanks for any help.
