Magento 2 comes pre-installed with PHPUnit, an automated testing framework for PHP. It is included as one of the dependencies in Magento 2. Covering the basics of PHPUnit is out of the scope of this tutorial, after a short introduction we are going to focus on the practical example of using PHPUnit with Magento 2. For those who are interested in PHPUnit basics, I would recommend reading documentation or tutorials on the web since it is a very well documented topic.Read more

Five of our Inchooers went to support, network and learn something at Meet Magento Italy. Inchooers Hrvoje, Ivan, Zelimir, Nenad, and Tomislav packed their bags and visited the dreamy city of Venice.
Nenad even had a special mission – to get on the #MM18IT’s stage and talk about PWA. He was explaining PWA as a concept in the context of Magento.
In this interview with the guys, you can read about the trip, the takeaways from Nenad’s lecture and about Inchoo’s plans with PWA. For this last matter, if it’s TLDR; we’re dedicating almost the entire development track of Meet Magento Croatia to PWA! 🙂Read more

It is Meet Magento Italy conference!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

An idea for writing this blog post inspired me for implementing this feature on two Magento 1 projects, on first project it was one of many changes that were part of A/B testing, on the second one it was part of creating a new visual identity for clients store.
So, what basically is sticky sidebar and why should it be used to improve your conversion rate? Well, just like sticky header, the purpose of sticky sidebar is to have the sidebar element displayed in the viewport at all times (or an at least, when some conditions are met). This is ideal place to move the product options (configurable dropdowns, image swatches etc), add to cart button or any other element that is important for your product. With this being said, your customer is free to browse all of the content on your product and once the decision has been made to purchase the product, the add to cart button is just waiting to be clicked on!Read more

Working with CMS blocks was one of the reasons Magento was and is so popular. Using CMS blocks, site administrator can easily manipulate content of the store. CMS blocks can be used to display promotional banners, sale blocks, return policies, important information message on some sections of the store etc. CMS blocks can carry plain text or chunks of HTML/JS/CSS code which means they can be used for even more complex content delivery like sliders, product carousels etc.
I personally like to use CMS blocks whenever I can so that content of the store becomes more “modular” and easily manageable.Read more
The only point of contact your customer has with your online store, is the designed interface. Ever wondered exactly what they think of it? Long gone are the days when the design was purely a visual discipline. It shifted into a responsibility, where designers are also to be valued for their understanding of the product being built. Design doesn’t just paint the building, it builds the stairs to an overall better usability and collaboration of everyone included. It is necessary to update our processes with thorough understanding of end users, colleagues and stakeholders to make responsible and risk-reduced design decisions. Change through user testing is what keeps the design process relevant and competitive.Read more
