At AXELITES, our expertise in development with Magento continues to grow with each project. While working on a site for one of our clients, we encountered an unexpected challenge that turned into a significant contribution to the Magento community. Here’s how it all unfolded.

  1. Discovering the Bug

It all began when we noticed abnormal behavior during testing on our client’s site. After many hours of debugging, it became clear that we had detected an unlisted bug in Magento.

  1. Engaging with the Magento Community

The beauty of working with open-source software like Magento is the strength and support of its community. After identifying the bug, we took the initiative to open a bug report on Magento’s GitHub to alert the community and core developers.

  1. Reproducing the Bug for the Magento Team

Once the bug was reported, it was essential to provide clear steps to reproduce the error. Our developers worked diligently, documenting each step and collaborating closely with the Magento team to ensure a clear understanding of the issue.

  1. Proposing the Solution

With our deep knowledge of Magento, our team decided not to stop at simply detecting the bug. We developed an effective solution and submitted it to the Magento team. To our great satisfaction, after thorough testing, our fix was accepted and incorporated into Magento version 2.4.

This incident not only allowed us to contribute significantly to Magento but also reinforced our belief in the power of collaboration and the open-source community. At AXELITES, we are proud of our expertise, but we are even prouder of our commitment to a broader community.

We look forward to continuing to work closely with the Magento community and contribute even more in the future.
