When new Adwords interface first launched, everyone had an opinion on it. Some people liked it because it was cleaner and had some amazing new features, other just hated it because it was still in beta and had some pretty annoying bugs, but all of us just tried to learn to navigate through it before it’s too late. We knew that the day will come when Google will replace the old interface with this new AdWords experience (and also rebrand its service into Google Ads).Read more

Symfony 4, (further in the text – Symfony) for templating provides twig bundle, which is a very useful templating engine. It is built by SensioLabs – the company behind Symfony. Besides Symfony, there are more platforms supporting Twig such as Drupal8, eZPublish, phpBB, Piwik, OroCRM, etc. In this article we will cover the basics and show how to extend them. Twig is by default not installed with Symfony, you need to include symfony/twig-bundle with the composer (composer require symfony/twig-bundle).Read more
As many folks that have attended Imagine conference will write a blog post about their experience, I was wondering how my blog post could differ. I don’t want to just share what was happening there, as this whole adventure is hard to put into the words and Magento has already covered it pretty well.
But let’s see what I will be able to deliver.Read more
Ten years ago, Croatian Commercial Court published a statement that Inchoo is registered as a legal entity. Oh boy, it was an adventure since. That 2008 was very exciting for the eCommerce ecosystem.

Development has been rapidly growing. In fact, at this stage, it has grown so much that it puts a lot of pressure on developers to become super-humans. However, the developers should do what they’re best at, and that is writing code without having to struggle with a local setup. Luckily, there are tools that help developers focus more on code and less on the environment.Read more
For a long time, our only platform of choice was Magento. It was simply the best match for SOHO, SMB and Mid Sized businesses, especially in the Magento 1 era. Ecosystem recognised this and embraced the platform fully, which empowered high growth. It gave our clients a great starting point, security and lots of options. But, a new generation of eCommerce platforms has matured, and we at Inchoo are excited with the possibilities they open.
Magento 2 positioned itself higher on a SMB scale and this created some new gaps/needs in the market. Now, we’re working with three platforms: Magento, Sylius and Shopify and we feel that these are not direct competitors. Each one has a specific niche to fill. We will always consult our clients towards the selection of platform that is more tailored to their needs. It makes the whole creative process more efficient and the end results are better.
Sylius eCommerce Framework is the newest member of our partner family and platforms that we build stores with, and we couldn’t be more thrilled with that! Its founder, Paweł Jędrzejewski, held a three-day workshop at Inchoo for our specially chosen development team.Read more
