Magento 2

Should I Upgrade to Magento 2?

Magento 2 has been around for more than a year now and many store owners are looking for something new to enhance their offerings. Developers have also heard about the numerous enhancements and would be no doubt looking to try it out. Well I have been trying out for the past few weeks on a project and I will be giving an overview of my thoughts having developed extensively on Magento 1.

Should I Upgrade to Magento 2: The Developer Perspective

Say for example you buy a theme and want to extend css, not on the admin section but in the code. Creating a child theme is ok and feels good but integrating with the existing Grunt setup to create a task that creates the css from less is a headache nightmare

Although this should be automatically taken care of, I hear.

Working with frontend js also requires you to learn…require.js which is pretty tricky but feels right. It is just difficult for the clowns developing themes to take this in to account and their answer to js condole errors is, merge all js into a single file so it all loads into the correct order.
