It has been a while since we posted our last blogpost. But not without a reason. Today I am happy to share our thoughts on where we have worked on the last year. Start discovering doing product development in our organisation we felt the need of a more scaleable idea of doing software development. The result is Chaplin (The Movie Pattern Practice).
Finally we are going to put everything together. And share our verdict.
Episerver Commerce is a very flexible product that can be customized to suit every e-commerce business needs. Almost every aspect can be customized though the way IOC is implemented in the product. But because everything can be customized to suit your needs does not mean that it’s good at everything, the UI of Episerver Commerce, and mainly the Catalogue part of it is not a walk in the park to work with for everyone.
About how to send context related data or other complex data to an external endpoint using Episerver Forms with valid JSON.
Containers seems to be a nice solutions, but it doesn’t always feel right to use this practice. I am going to share the considerations of using a container and share other features which maybe fits a “container use-case” better.
Sometimes I see blobstorages growing at customers side. It can be the result of a job, or because the storage is used by a couple of developers or because Develop and Test are using the same storage. For all these cases I have created this small script. Which does easily create a clean new container for you.
The CMS is not the only place where content is served from. A modern website does present content from different sources like; Video platforms, DAM systems, PIM systems or even other “content networks”. We do consult on a couple of integrations where we have the need to deliver from these kind of sources. Content Providers to the rescue. In this post I am going to share some challenges we have experienced down the road, especially in relation to the IdentityMappingService.
You will be surprised how many strategies are possible and what kind of decisions you can be made for handling languages. In this blog post I like to share some default strategies and thoughts about how to setup a multi-lingual / multi-country website.
The beauty of a system like Episerver is that you can rely on default patterns and practices. In this post I like to show you how you can deal with context related stuff by using a pattern we use in every other application architecture as well.
A collegeau CMS developer asked me a maybe general but very important question the other day. Q; “When creating blocks, do you tend to put “structure” markup in block views?” A: “it depends!”
