Magento PHP developer’s guide

It really was a long time since my last review of books about Magento, in the meanwhile some of you may know that I’ve been to a Magento U class in Berlin and I’ve taken 3 of the 4 Magento certifications. I’ve been through some really busy months but now I should be back on track. Continue reading

P4A 4.0 update

Just a quick update on the development, please follow quicker on p4a’s facebook page:

  • products catalog is acting as a skeleton application from now on, so it’s been moved to a separate repository: https://github.com/fballiano/p4a-products-catalog
  • products catalog now has full composer support to install zend framework and autloading everything (check composer.json if you need to add things)
  • p4a’s repository has been stripped down removing applications/icons and some other thigs
  • at the moment i suggest you not to clone p4a’s repository cause i’m heavily moving things and refactoring so it’s really difficult for anyone to make an application run

we’re moving, we’re moving, expect more info soon!

So you want PayPal Express Checkout on Magento 1.3?

And you get some weird errors…
open your app/code/core/Mage/Paypal/Model/Api/Nvp.php file and search for SOLUTIONTYPE, change its value to “mark”.

Edit your PayPal preferences from Magento backend and use this PayPal Url:
https://www.paypal.com/au/cgi-bin/webscr?cmd=_express-checkout&useraction=commit&token=

You should be done.
Good luck.

P4A’s tools changes

In the last months we had problems with the past infrastructure, our mediawiki was heavily attacked and become useless and SourceForge’s bugtracker was completely destroyed by spam. So I took the suggestion of one of our followers to rethink about everything and give it a spin:

The forum system is still on SourceForge, I didn’t find a way to migrate it somewhere else but it didn’t have any bad troubles in the past so it should be ok to keep it on SourceForge at the moment, what do you think?

That should be all for now, thank you everyone and I hope we’ll see much more movement around P4A in the future!

Magento 2.0

News are coming out about our new loved/hated Magento major (and it’s gonna be really major) release: Magento2.

First of all a technical overview video, not too recent actually:

One amazing thing is that the development moved to github:
https://github.com/magento/magento2
with all the benefits we know.

Another nice improvement is that we have public tests for the test addicted:
