Magento 2 Front controller reached 100 router match iterations

Today we talk about most common error when you trying to add dynamic route in your module. There are three set need to be setModuleName, setControllerName and
setActionName. The problem is cause when there is no matching with your setModuleName, setControllerName and setActionName. May be is causing by spell mistake and any lower uppercase.
But the biggest confusion in this when you set setModuleName. You think of your module name but this is fronName that you are set in your frontend/routes.xml

    app/code/QaisarSatti/HelloWorld/etc/frontend/routes.xml
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!--/**
* Simple Hello World Module
*
* @category QaisarSatti
* @package QaisarSatti_HelloWorld
* @author Muhammad Qaisar Satti
* @Email [email protected]
*
*/ -->
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:App/etc/routes.xsd">
<router id="standard">
<route id="helloworld" frontName="helloworld">
<module name="QaisarSatti_HelloWorld" />
</route>
</router>
</config>

Now your setting will be in your router.php by following module

$request->setModuleName('helloworld')->setControllerName('index')->setActionName('index')

   public function __construct(
    \Magento\Backend\Block\Template\Context $context,
    \Magento\Reports\Model\ResourceModel\Product\CollectionFactory $productsFactory,
    array $data = []
   ) {
 
        $this->_productsFactory = $productsFactory;
    parent::__construct($context, $data);
   }
public function getMostViewedData(){
   
    $mostViewedCollection = $this->_productsFactory->create()->addViewsCount();  
    return $mostViewedCollection;
   }

Magento 2 Find value in comma separated string column

Today we discuss Magento 2 find value in comma separated string column. Sometime you need to search in comma separated values in database. So for that we use the Finset to search in comma separated values. Let’s take the example of product collection. Let’s spose the field name test_sku have the comma separated values. So here is example

protected $_productCollectionFactory;
public function __construct(
        \Magento\Catalog\Model\ResourceModel\Product\CollectionFactory $productFactory
    ) {
        $this->_productCollectionFactory = $productFactory;
    }
    public function getProductCollection()
    {
       $sku=’test’;    
      return   $this->_productCollectionFactory->create()->addFieldToFilter('test_sku', array('finset' => $sku));
     
     }

Magento 2 deploy static content theme

Today we talk about how to use command line interface to do Magento 2 deploy static content theme.Doing the static content deployment is quite a headache. So today i will tell how to deploy content smartly. Magento 2 give option to deploy language example en_US, deploy area example frontend or adminhtml also the deploy the theme example blank or luma. Now we separate these with frontend and backend. This tutorial include the single theme deploy in magento 2, area base deployment example frontend or adminhtml and local base content deploy. Here is shortcut of adding the language area and theme.
-l = language
-a = area
-t = theme

Frontend theme deployment

By default you can use below command to deploy the static content. This is deploy static content for add the languages.

php bin/magento  setup:static-content:deploy

Now we add language filter so it deploy only my specific language example en_Us

php bin/magento  setup:static-content:deploy  en_US

After adding language filter we add the area specific filter so it deploy only my area language example frontend.

php bin/magento  setup:static-content:deploy  en_US -a frontend

After adding area filter we add the theme filter so it deploy only my theme example luma.

php bin/magento  setup:static-content:deploy  en_US -a frontend -t Magento/luma

Bakcend theme deployment

Using php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy en_US after adding language filter we add the area specific filter so it deploy only my area language example backend. Now it will deploy the backend content only.

php bin/magento  setup:static-content:deploy  en_US -a adminhtml

After adding area filter we add the theme filter so it deploy only my theme example backend.

php bin/magento  setup:static-content:deploy  en_US -a adminhtml-t Magento/backend
