As you probably know, Magento is using a plain text field to handle quantity on product page. This is the bulletproof solution – it is simple and covers all needs. But, sometimes, merchants want to use something more appealing, and many of them settle for quantity increment buttons (those + and – buttons next to the quantity input field). Adding this kind of behaviour will be the topic of this post.Read more
When it comes to Magento 2 and cron jobs, there are some improvements comparing to Magento 1.
It is still abstract in the way that you don’t really run jobs directly, instead, you use cron syntax to setup periodical method execution via Magento scheduler that works on top of system’s cron utility.
Here are some useful hints to help you get started with setting up your own.Read more

Remember that time when you wanted to create a Magento shell or php script to perform some action, but didn’t know where to put it?
Remember the /shell folder in root Magento installation (or root folder, for that matter)?
Remember how it used to have, like, 50 shell and php scripts all mixed up, and you get a headache just by looking at them?
Pepperidge Farm remembers.
Those were good old times, and like all good times, they have now come to pass. There’s a new kid on the block, more powerful and way cooler, and the best part is – it’s integrated into Magento 2.Read more
One of the new features that you get out of the box with Magento 2 is New Relic reporting.
New Relic has been around for about the same amount of time as Magento. I always liked projects that were using New Relic for performance analysis because it was much easier to identify preformance bottlenecks – especially on production systems where you have little bit less debugging possibilities. That’s why I’m really excited to have it in the new Magento version.
Today we’ll cover how to manually enable or disable module in Magento 2 and which module setup scripts are executed in the process.Read more
Do you remember, how many times you did something that was time consuming and/or required certain amount of steps to achieve your goal? After some time you had to repeat the whole process… And again… And again… I am pretty sure you came to an idea, “Wouldn’t it be really useful if I can somehow simplify the process?” Yes, you are correct, the same question troubled me when trying to figure out how the make my life easier when creating a custom theme. Unlike Magento 1, Magento 2 has a different (and more complex) way of setting up themes, so I started developing a Bash script that will make my life easier. Hopefully, yours as well.Read more
