M2: Add a CMS block to your layout

Add a CMS block to your layout XML:

<referenceContainer name="containerName">
    <block class="Magento\Cms\Block\Block" name="block_name_in_layout" as="block.name.in.layout">
            <argument name="block_id" xsi:type="string">block_identifier</argument>

Syncing Forks Without Merge Commits

I was looking for a quick way to sync a forked GitHub repository that had upstream changes without using their interface to create a pull request (doing so would result in a merge commit showing up in the list of commits when I submit another pull request).

Thats when I found Upriver.

Pretty straightforward:

  • Give it authorization to use your GitHub account.
  • Tell it which branches to sync
  • Click Pull

Thanks for the cool tool @bardiharborow
