Magento Professional-New Magento Edition by Varien

Posted on July 22nd, 2014 | Posted by admin

Magento, one of the most flexible, fastest growing e-commerce development platform got a new edition Magento Professional’ edition. A new achievement for Varien who introduced ‘Magento Professional’ just few days back.

Unlike Magento Community Edition, Magento Professional Edition is however not free of cost. But it is not so much costly like its big brother ‘Magento Enterprise’ Edition. The licensing cost of Magento Professional is till date $2995 per year.

Another interesting thing that we have found with Magento Professional Edition is that it comes with a Warranty.


But this is a true fact. Varien published this fact in the Product Brochure that this edition is highly tested and warranted.

Phonegap HTML5 Project Structure

Posted on June 18th, 2014 | Posted by admin

During my first phonegap project i was very confused with what project structure to follow. Since Phonegap is a HTML5 app, all files needs to be .html only, so i was confused a lot of weather to use a single HTML file structure or multiple HTML files. Below in the blog post i will share my experience

Single HTML File

This make a lot of sense to use, because in multiple html files, will have lot of issues like passing variables, copy pasting header/footer multiple times in different files. But the problem with single html file is if we start to code our app in a single html file, the code will become very long and un manageable very soon.

Magento sample order checkout

Posted on May 28th, 2013 | Posted by admin

In my site there are products like curtains and customer can choose different color for curtains, for color we are using custom options so customer can choose different color, but there are we have requirement that customer can order sample color to look and feel before buying actual product, so how we can give sample order functionality.

Colors are not actual product so we can’t use magento checkout functionality but if customer order sample product then how we can handle this sample order?

Solr Startup Script

Posted on May 27th, 2013 | Posted by admin

If you’re running Magento Enterprise Edition (and in my opinion anyone serious about eCommerce on Magento should be), one of the power features you get that isn’t available out of the box on the Community Edition is Solr support. As most of our clients choose to take advantage of this, I have spent a fair amount of time learning and setting up Solr on multiple systems. Depending on how you choose to run your system you may want to control starting and stopping Solr manually or (for the sake of this post) would rather have it run as an automatically restarting script.

Below is a quick script for setting this up, it has been tested in Ubuntu 12.04, but should work elsewhere without issues

Step 1) install and setup Solr as usual

Step 2) copy you Solr instance to /usr/local/solr/MYSOLRINSTANCE (where MYSOLRINSTANCE is the name you have chosen for this instance of Solr)

Step 3) create the file /etc/init.d/solr and copy the following into it (be sure to change MYSOLRINSTANCE in the script below to match the directory name used in step 2)
