Create Sitecore Commerce items with a script – Part 1 (Utils)

Importing and exporting single Sitecore Commerce items is not easy, there is no OOTB serialization of single items as we have for Sitecore CMS items. This is because Sitecore XC items are virtual items which are shown in Content Editor using Commerce Engine Connect Catalog Provider. The provider is defined in Sitecore.Commerce.Engine.DataProvider.config There is aContinue reading “Create Sitecore Commerce items with a script – Part 1 (Utils)”

Using Sitecore.MainUtil – Part 1

Sitecore has a relatively unknown helper class which contains lots of cool functions that are very useful for developers. In this article, I will list those functions that are present in Sitecore 10. Those functions will be later moved to StringUtil and FileUtil classes. Other utilities classes are: Sitecore.StringUtil Sitecore.IO.FileUtil Sitecore.DateUtil Sitecore.Web.HtmlUtil Sitecore.Web.WebUtil Sitecore.Xml.XmlUtil WorkingSetSizeContinue reading “Using Sitecore.MainUtil – Part 1”

Migrating Sitecore medialib items from an Azure Storage Account to another one

One of our customer was upgrading his multisite/multilanguage Sitecore installation from version 9.0.1 to 9.3, and had gigabytes of media to move from the old site to the new one. Of course, moving the Sitecore items was easy, it was just to create a package and import it to the new site – I’ll showContinue reading “Migrating Sitecore medialib items from an Azure Storage Account to another one”

Complex rendering variants in SXA made easy with Scriban templates

When creating my own rendering variants in SXA, I was often frustrated by the rigidity of the elements available to create the variant’s HTML structure. For example, it was nearly impossible to render easily the value of a Droplist or taking care of rendering parameters. To create complex rendering variants, with CSS classes defined inContinue reading “Complex rendering variants in SXA made easy with Scriban templates”

Import and Export data outside Sitecore

In some projects, I have been asked to export and import data that was in Sitecore so that non-technical personal could easily work with it. It could be everything from exporting users’s personal data to updating product information in a Sitecore Commerce site. The requirements were that these non-technical personal shouldn’t have to learn anythingContinue reading “Import and Export data outside Sitecore”
