Developing/Testing Plugins in Magento 2


I'm developing a new payment extension/plugin for bitcoin and I couldn't find a correct way to install the plugin for testing purposes.
I don't have enough experiences when it comes to Magento 2 so please help me.

Thank you in advance.


Re: Developing/Testing Plugins in Magento 2

Hello @hamid_nabati 


There are mainly two ways to install any plugin/extensions either it is for use purpose of it is for testing purpose.


  1. Composer
  2. Manually - By placing your plugin into the app/code directory.

But here in your case you have created a plugin yourself - so you will require to install the same manually so go with second approach.


Put your plugin/extension directory with all the files into the app/code directory of your Magento2 setup.


Then run below commands in sequence : 


php bin/magento setup:upgrade
php bin/magento setup:di:compile
php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f
php bin/magento cache:clean
php bin/magento cache:flush

Then check your plugin/extension gets installed successfully.


There are few articles available which explain the same - below i am listing few articles links !



Hope it helps !
