Build command

Build command can only be used if config propagation is properly configured. See Magento DevDocs:

Also check app:config:dump issue and workaround here:


Js translations missing (magento versions >=2.1.3 <2.2.1)

  • Problem: Known Magento issue when executing setup:static-content:deploy for several languages.

  • Github Issues:

  • Solution: Until that gets fixed in 2.2.1, the only workaround is to execute setup:static-content:deploy individually for each language:

     // deploy.php
     task('files:static_assets', '
     	{{bin/php}} {{magento_bin}} setup:static-content:deploy en_US {{static_deploy_options}}
     	{{bin/php}} {{magento_bin}} setup:static-content:deploy de_CH {{static_deploy_options}}
     	{{bin/php}} {{magento_bin}} setup:static-content:deploy fr_FR {{static_deploy_options}}

Compilation error

  • Solution: Increase php memory_limit configuration to 728M o 1024M

Static deploy error when setting a new template (if config propagation is not used)

  • Problems:

    • [LogicException] Unable to load theme by specified key: 'Template'
    • @variable is undefined in file
  • Reason: If a new template is set, running setup:upgrade is required before executing setup:static-content:deploy

  • Solution: Skip setup:static-content:deploy first time you deploy the new template:

    1. Temporary disable task files:static_assets

      // deploy.php
    2. Perform a new release

    3. Enable back files:static_assets on your deploy.php file

      • Remove task('files:static_assets')->onRoles('Skip');
    4. Manually execute files:static_assets

      <bin_dir>/dep files:static_assets [<stage>]

    After that, future deployments will work without issues
