Working with Magento 2 Cache

Sometimes Magento developers face the need to work with Magento caches programmatically. For example, when you develop your custom module, which renders some content on front-end and this content can be managed via Admin Panel. Let’s say, it is cached by Full Page Cache (FPC). In this case you will need to notify the user that one of the cache types is invalidated and should be refreshed in order to have the changes applied. Or you will even want to refresh the FPC automatically on each modification. Magento 2 allows to perform it very quickly and easily.

Adding a new widget in Magento 2

Magento 2 has a handy toolkit for static content management on the site that is called Content Management System (CMS). The toolkit consists of three main parts: pages, blocks and widgets. Pages allow us to manage content of an entire page. Blocks provide an ability to edit content of separate page elements. The main difference between blocks and widgets: if you need to change block parameters, you usually have to do it programmatically.

As a rule, widgets have configurable parameters that can be set up when adding it via admin panel.
