In one of our current Magento 2 projects we has the need to create a custom shipping method which thhat should not be selectable when there a product in our cart with a specific value selected in a custom attribute.
As it seems there is no out-of-the-box way in Sencha ExtJS to provide a configuration based on the build environment (development, testing or production) to your application. Since you need at least different urls for your proxys, it makes sense to have a mechanism in place that would generate the respective configuration for you. This is our solution for the problem.
We are running Rancher in combination with the in-built load balancer HAProxy. For each of our customers, our application is provided as a single container, many on the same physical server instance. Each of the customers' applications can be accessed via different URLs, so the usage of the HAProxy as the routing component part of the load balancer makes sense.
Linking Docker containers can be done in various ways. In my recent attempt of playing with Docker and our GitLab Review Apps setup, I experimented with different methods to figure out what would work best. These are the different options I played around with:
With the newest release of the Force Login module for Magento 2, you are now able to change the way to define your whitelist rules. For starters, you can choose between the already known regex-based interpreter strategy and the new static-based interpreter. The latter makes it now very easy to whitelist simple URLs without the requirement to know regex syntax. We also moved the configuration tab to "Customer > Customer Configuration" section.
When we made the move to GitLab 1,5 years ago, it was clear to me that we would need some automation to simplify the creation of groups and projects and to sync the LDAP group memberships to the matching GitLab groups. I did a quick search on Packagist for GitLab client libraries and found the m4tthumphrey/php-gitlab-api package.
I wasn't really happy with the current approaches of dealing with different Dockerfiles and docker-compose.yaml files for development and production containers. I don't really see the point of managing multiple configuration files, building a few intermediate containers when the only difference between a development image and a production image is that the code is copied into the image during build. Adding files on every build is also not an ideal solution as you could potentially ship an old version of the application when you miss running a docker build after you made your final changes.
In my recent talk on introducing Disco - the DI container with the damn coolest name(tm) - I talk about why I believe that using XML or any other non-code configuration (YAML, JSON, ...) is not a good idea. This stirred some twitter discussion recently which led to this blog post.
In a recent attempt to automate a few things even more, I was looking for a way to post messages to our Mattermost instance via the Incoming Webhook feature of Mattermost. I did a quick search on Packagist for Mattermost client libraries and as it turns out there a quite a few. I picked the thibaud-dauce/mattermost-php package simply because it was the first match ;)
When providing and consuming webservices both sides do their best to fulfill the WSDL contract. But what if one side can not fulfill the contract? To be concrete, the client sends us SOAP requests but omits the application's namespace. So instead of:
