Re: Documentation for Building Extensions

Hi there,

I am having 5+ years of experience in Web development and I am Magento certified.

I love to develop this extension in Magento 1.x

Are you planning for the same extension in Magento 2 also ?

This extension will be paid or free ?

If you need my help, feel free to contact us anytime.

Hi  Sumeet Shroff,


Extension is a structural element of Magento 2 – the whole system is built upon modules. Typically, the first step in creating a customization is building a Extension.

To create a module, you need to complete the following high-level steps:

  1. Create the extension folder.
  2. Create the etc/module.xml file.
  3. Create the registration.php file.
  4. Run the bin/magento setup:upgrade script to install the new module.
  5. Check that the extension is working.

Let’s go through each of these steps in detail.
