Magento 2 GitHub Pull Requests – Max’s TOP favorites

There is the absolute record set during Magento Contribution Day in Krakow, Poland, September 17, 2017. During Meet Magento Poland Magento team together with 40 developers fixed and created 25 pull requests.

Also, please view latest Pull Requests to Magento 2 project which I believe are most interesting and bring great value to the platform:

  • #10918 Created memory efficient iterator for importexport_importdata table by diwipl. This pull request addresses huge memory usage during importing huge list of products. The 1 500 000 entities import should easily run on 8GB RAM server or less.
  • #10414 – Add ability to load block and pages by identifiers by damiantomczak. This is a very interesting improvement for the CMS blocks and CMS pages management. New Service API has been added. Now, developers can load a page instance by using the Magento\Cms\Api\PageManagementInterface interface. Same with loading blocks, the Magento\Cms\Api\BlockManagementInterface interface provides getByIdentifier() method to load block.
  • #10771 Code generate: support variadic parameter by Evgeniy Kalashnikov. This improvement adds variadic parameter support for the auto-generated code. Now it is possible to create a plugin for the method which looks like get($path, …$objects).
