Recently we took a look at a technology stack comparison of Magento 1 vs Magento 2. Just a few of these improvements featured in Magento 2 include PSR compliance and CSS3. Of course the technology stack is just one of the many optimizations found in Magento 2. Here’s a quick look at some of the other improvements featured.
*Performance Boosts – You can’t talk about optimizations without improving performance. Experience faster page loads thanks to improved indexers, the Magento performance toolkit designed to optimize system performance and integration with Varnish cache.
*Scalability Enhancements – Static page content is cached, improving performance as well as lowering server load.
*Easy Upgrade – Magento 2 features a migration tool making it easier and faster than ever to upgrade your site to the newest version.
*Improved Structure – Magento developers will have find it easier to customize their installs because every module has its own View directory and everything is placed within the app structures.
*jQuery – Prototype has been replaced jquery by popular demand in the latest version of Magento.
*Improved Dashboard – The Magento control panel isn’t just designed to be easier on the eyes; it comes more streamlined and easier to use.
*Easier Customizations – The modular code of Magento 2 reduces the need for cross-module dependencies so developers can make targeted changes without worrying whether they are impacting other code within Magento.
