Assign custom theme programmatically to store in Magento 2

Today we discuss how to assign custom theme programmatically to store in Magento 2. Sometimes you need to set the theme programmatically. For that, you need theme_id and store_id. You can get theme_id from theme table.

use Magento\Framework\App\Config\ConfigResource\ConfigInterface;

/**
* @var ConfigInterface
*/

private $configInterface;
public function __construct(
ConfigInterface $configInterface
) {
$this->configInterface = $configInterface;
}

Following belowcode you can change theme programatically.

$this->configInterface->saveConfig('design/theme/theme_id', {{theme_id}}, 'stores', {{store_id}});

NOTE: change {{theme_id}} and {{store_id}} with your theme id and store id

Magento 2 create simple theme

Today we discuss how in Magento 2 create simple theme? Creating a simple theme or custom theme is consisting on four easy step in magento2. First you have to create your SpaceName in my case it is QaisarSatti. Create folder in app/design/frontend/QaisarSatti. Now add the theme name after app/design/frontend/QaisarSatti/theme.

First Step:

Create the composer.json file for theme.

app/design/frontend/QaisarSatti/theme/composer.json

{
"name": "magento/theme-frontend-blank",
"description": "My First Theme",
"require": {
"php": "~5.5.0|~5.6.0|~7.0.0",
"magento/theme-frontend-blank": "100.0.*",
"magento/framework": "100.0.*"
},
"type": "magento2-theme",
"version": "100.0.1",
"license": [
"OSL-3.0",
"AFL-3.0"
],
"autoload": {
"files": [
"registration.php"
]
}
}

Second Step:

In this step we will register our theme.

app/design/frontend/QaisarSatti/theme/registration.php

<?php
/**
* Copyright © 2015 Magento. All rights reserved.
* See COPYING.txt for license details.
*/

\Magento\Framework\Component\ComponentRegistrar::register(
    \Magento\Framework\Component\ComponentRegistrar::THEME,
    'frontend/QaisarSatti/theme',
    __DIR__
);

Third Step:
Create the theme.xml file. Here you will define the parent theme for your theme so in my case the magento blank theme.

app/design/frontend/QaisarSatti/theme/theme.xml

<theme xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Config/etc/theme.xsd">
     <title>My First Theme</title> <!-- your theme's name -->
     <parent>Magento/blank</parent> <!-- the parent theme, in case your theme inherits from an existing theme -->
     <media>
         <preview_image>media/preview.jpg</preview_image> <!-- the path to your theme's preview image -->
     </media>
 </theme>

Fourth Step:

Now add you theme preview image in media folder. This will be show in admin panel where theme are listed.

app/design/frontend/QaisarSatti/theme/media/preview.jpg

Here we create the new theme in magento 2. Now just simply run these command you register you theme in magento.

php bin/magento setup:upgrade

Magento 2 load product by id

Today we talk about how in Magento 2 load product by id. There are three way to get product load in magento 2. First Object Manager second factory Method and third one is Api Repository.

Factory Method:

Best practice method always use this method.

namespace QaisarSatti\Module\Block;

class Product extends \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template
{

  protected $_product;  


  public function __construct(
     
        \Magento\Catalog\Model\ProductFactory $_product

    ) {


        $this->_productloader = $_productloader;
     
    }
    public function getLoadProduct()
    {
        $product_id=7;
        return $this->_productloader->create()->load($product_id);
    }

}

Api Repository:

This was introduce in Magento 2.1 by magento.

    namespace QaisarSatti\Module\Block;
    use Magento\Catalog\Api\ProductRepositoryInterface;
    class Product extends \Magento\Framework\View\Element\Template
     {
          protected $_productRepository;
       

          public function __construct(
         
            ProductRepositoryInterface $productRepository
          ) {
         

              $this->_productRepository = $productRepository;
          }
          public function getProduct()
          {
              $productId=7;
              return $product = $this->productRepository->getById($productId);
          }
      }

Object Manager:

No recommended method to use in magento2 but so magento use it so here it is just for knowledge.

$product_id=7;
$objectManager = \Magento\Framework\App\ObjectManager::getInstance();
$product = $objectManager->create('Magento\Catalog\Model\Product')->load($product_id);
