Developer to Production Cashe

Magento 2.2 Hi all been using MAGE for about 2 months now and I am a Neophyte to front and back end. I am looking for a little guidance in changing form “developer” to “production” mode. I don’t use the CL, I use a combo of my FTP access and CMS.

  1. What is the order of changing modes?
  2. What cashe folders do I delete?

I changed modes by going to:

  1. app/etc/ and opening env.php
  2. then I changed MAGE_MODE’ => ‘developer’ to MAGE_MODE’ => ‘production’

I have read that I have to delete the files in the cash folders.

  1. What should I do first? Delete cashe or change modes?
  2. Which folders and which files should I clear from what file paths?(In the examples I have seen the file structure is different from mine).

I have read a few articles and posts on when to use which mode but I am still a little unclear. Could you give me examples of what mode to use for what?

  1. Developer mode: What tasks should I do in this mode?
  2. Production mode: What tasks should I do in this mode?

I hope this is not too tall an order to ask. So please forgive my newness to Magento. I really appreciate you offering your professional advice and time!!!!

Thank you so much !!! Humbly, the Mage_Neophyte

What is the best forum for software developer and Project Managers?

I am working in a ML and AI lab, where I need some input from the project managers and software developers on their biggest pain. I thought I can use this platform to reach out to them. I posted that question at this link, but looks like this may not be the best fit. Can you tell me the best forum or any other online source where I can reach out to the project managers and software developers?

How to automate CSV-exports of queries in PL/SQL Developer (Oracle)?

I’m no pro in Oracle or PL/SQL Developer (I mostly use and admin mySQL and MS SQL Server).

I’m not an admin of any sort, but have read access to many tables in Oracle via PL/SQL Developer.

I need the ability to schedule an automatic (say, daily) export of a few tables (well, queries) in CSV format. Whether it’s to my local computer, network, email — anything.

Does anyone know how this might be achieved?

As a junior developer, how can I broach critism of not-yet used chosen tools

So I started a month ago at relatively small company (12 people in the building) as a junior developer without professional experience apart from my own (7 years) and no degree. We’re building a JEE app that’s been going on for 15 years, and for the next version it was decided we would rebuild the frontend, removing frames/iframes/JSP and using a restish API. They also decided that we would use ExtJS as a framework. I just started discovering it and here is what I thought:

  • They have a large, although far from exhaustive, base of available components


  • The framework provides poor information over encountered errors. For instance, it doesn’t test the type of data sent to classes, leading to cryptic x is not a function where a proper framework like react would have said x is y expected a z.
  • The community is small and googling errors is often useless, so you are left helpless / requiring a senior dev’s help
  • The UI looks like shit. Seriously. Their icons are ugly. Their buttons are just rectangles. They have a poor choice of colors. Do the even have a designer? A six years-old could have done a but better job.
  • The underlying mechanics are not obvious: scopes are unclear, what a single param will effectively do is unclear…

I’m not the only one feeling that way, our intern webdesigner agrees.I’d like to bring this up to my manager, I think if I brought it up the right way he would listen. Although, it’s not the first time I talked about technology choices (we still use CVS and we don’t use any build tool like maven) but I do believe that the technology choice, when rebuilding from the ground, is a matter of importance and going off the wrong foot might be detrimental.

I already asked why they would choose ExtJS over React/angular etc and it seems because – our headquarters like extjs, and already paid for it – licensing might cause issue with another approch (since we would need several libs) – tech debt could be an issue (eg Angular versionning)
