Magento 2 Getter and Setter Generator

Magento 2 is going away from magic methods and many of Magento 2 classes have getters and setters in their classes.

However, it's time consuming to create these all all your properties on your CRUD Model, so this is why I've created a small tool that generates the getters and setters.



Generate getters and setters

Add your attribute in snake case, comma-seperated in the above input field.




    /**
    * @param $attributeId
    * @return $this
    */
    public function setAttributeId($attributeId)
    {
        return $this->setData('attribute_id', $attributeId);
    }

    /**
    * @param $colorKey
    * @return $this
    */
    public function setColorKey($colorKey)
    {
        return $this->setData('color_key', $colorKey);
    }

    /**
    * @return mixed
    */
    public function getAttributeId()
    {
        return $this->getData('attribute_id');
    }

    /**
    * @return mixed
    */
    public function getColorKey()
    {
        return $this->getData('color_key');
    }

SVN Merge: List Unmerged Revision Command

One disadvantage of RabbitVCS as compared to TortoiseSVN is that with RabbitVCS you cannot see which revisions have been and have not been merged.

A nice command that I found that can do the job is:

svn mergeinfo ^/calc/branches/development  --show-revs eligible

It will just list the revisions that are not merged yet. It is a nice command that you can use in case you want to merge a branch to trunk for example.

MSc and BSc Projects


I've decided to open source my academic projects which I've done at BSc and MSc levels, which you can find below.

MSc: Internet Technology and Web Development

My MSc project was titled "Context-Aware Searching for Mobile Devices" and it is about finding affinities between users on Facebook and afterwards suggest products that might interest one user depending on his close friends products usage.

The Document: http://goo.gl/TC8W0
FacebookApp: https://apps.facebook.com/spotfinder/
Code for App: https://github.com/kervin/spotfinder
Android App: https://github.com/kervin/myspotfinder


BSc: Computer Science and Engineering

My BSc Project, which I co-authored, was titled "Suspend Behavior Recognition" and it is a program that, using a webcam, monitors activities at ATMs to sound an Alarm in case there is a suspension of theft or vandalism.

Building Attribute Group Tree


Each product has a defined attribute set in Magento and which is set on creation of the product. Attribute sets consists of a number of attribute groups which in turn has a number of attributes.

Normally that is used only in admin, but I got a request to classify the attributes like that in a grid on frontend, which was a bit tricky. Below is the solution that I came up to.


$retValue = array();

/* @var $product Mage_Catalog_Model_Product  */
$product = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->load(3224);

// Get the attribute set of the product
$attributeSetId = $product->getAttributeSetId();

// Get the attribute groups associated to the attribute set
$attributeGroups = Mage::getResourceModel('eav/entity_attribute_group_collection')
    ->setAttributeSetFilter($attributeSetId)
    ->load();


// Get the attributes of each group
foreach ($attributeGroups as $value) {
    $group['title'] = $value->getAttributeGroupName();

    $attributes = $product->getAttributes($value->getId());

    $attributeVal = array();

    foreach ($attributes as $attribute) {
        $att['title'] = $attribute->getFrontEndLabel();
        $attributeCode = $attribute->getAttributeCode();

        
        $data = $product->getData($attributeCode);
        if (!empty($data['values'])) {
            $attributeVal = $product->getAttributeText($attributeCode);
        }

        if (!empty($attributeVal)) {
            $att['value'] = $attributeVal;
            $group['value'][] = $att;
        }
    }

        $retValue[] = $group;
}

echo '<pre>';
var_dump($retValue);
echo '</pre>';

How magento widget form container instantiates a form

In admin for Magento, widget forms are used in order to edit entities. You need a Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Widget_Form_Container that contains a Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Widget_Form (with tabs etc..). The full explanation of how the full edit works is beyond this blog post, and I am concentrating on an issue that I came on.

So, while creating a form, I got the following error:
Fatal error: Call to a member function setData() on a non-object in app/code/core/Mage/Adminhtml/Block/Widget/Form/Container.php on line 129 

It took me some time to figure out what going on, and after some digging in mage widget forms, I understood the error. In fact, Magento is not finding the form associated to the form container.

Basically for container to locate the form, it needs 3 attributes, an example below:

    protected $_blockGroup = 'training_commenteav';
    protected $_controller = 'adminhtml_eav_comment';
    protected $_mode = 'edit';

These specify the location of the form. In the parent class, here what's happening:
$this->getLayout()->createBlock($this->_blockGroup . '/' . $this->_controller . '_' . $this->_mode . '_form')

So for my example it would be "training_commenteav/adminhtml_eav_comment_edit_form" that it will use to create a block instance.

I don't know why you can't just specify the uri of the form as I would have expected. Instead it uses blockgroup, controller and mode. Maybe you could have an abstract class for several modes and reuse the blockgroup and controller which I don't think is that useful. Anyway that is how Magento works with widget forms.

Magento Country Codes per Continent for Table Rate


I was trying to setup flat shipping rate per continent on Magento and figured out that was not possible.  So I made a little sql script to categorize the countries according to their continent.


If you want more information about how to use it, read that blog post: http://php.quicoto.com/magento-country-codes-for-table-rate/

The information is stored in a database, so if you need if in a different format or with other data, let me know.
