    Tip #1: Survey the Landscape

    As you organize extensions to port to Magento 2.0, survey the landscape to recognize zones of chance to extend your business. Make sure to see what's as of now accessible on Magesolution and assess the crevices.

    Some extra tips from world esteemed developers:

    “Navigate to Magesolution and search for the existing solutions that may be convenient in this case. Thoroughly check the functionality of the extensions and it may be that some particular features and functionality are missing in the existing extensions. Often, clients come to us saying that they found an extension that lacks some particular functionality and they ask if we can add it. Listen to such requests and it may be a great help in finding the idea for a new extension.” - BelVG

    “The biggest thing for us in launching a Magento 2.0 extension was first understanding the merchant opportunity or pain point we are solving. Magento merchants have such a breadth of customization options at their fingertips, the biggest tip I can give any new developer is to understand how what you’re building fits into the larger Magento ecosystem." - Pixlee

    Tip #2: Find out About Technical Guidelines

    Take in more about what is expected to build, package, and submit a Magento 2.0 expansion.

    Some extra tips from world esteemed developers:

    “Study technical guidelines. First of all, follow the Magento philosophy of coding and development. Make sure that your extensions comply with the terms of Service Contracts and PSR-1 and PSR-2 Basic Coding Standards. And, in the development stage provide your extensions with integrational tests, at least.” - aheadWorks

    “Follow the framework – Chances are that what you are trying to build is already supported by the Magento 2.0 extensions framework in some shape or form. So look for platform code that does something similar, consult forums or request help from someone knowledgeable in the code base.”SLI System

    “Take time to get used to the process of unit testing. With Magento 2.0, creating mockup objects for inclusion in your tests can be cumbersome but it is worthwhile. Every line of code you add to your tests, will help you understand your extension code even better.”Yireo

    "Leverage Magento resources! Building an extension doesn't need to be a solo project. The Magento team offers so many resources and support options for developers, that it is super important to be an active member of the developer community and leverage the work that has already been done. In the end this will result in a better extension and an easier process for developers." - Pixlee

    Tip #3: Pass the Reviews

    As a major aspect of the Magento Marketplace accommodation handle, every extension or theme will go through an automated Technical Review for written falsification, security and code guidelines.
    Likewise, all suppliers will go through a manual Business Review directed by the Magento Marketplace team. This manual review will concentrate on guaranteeing all suppliers submit required business data for streamlined transactions, and also for adherence to general promoting rules for item depictions, graphics and data to guarantee great client experiences. The manual survey will check that the extension offers genuine usefulness improvements to Magento merchants, too.

    Some extra tips from world esteemed developers:

    “Naturally, when building out any new technology or plugin, the documentation and its clarity is of highest importance. Technical guidelines are especially crucial when an extension is being developed to fit a specific platform, more so when the product has the potential to be deployed across tens of thousands of unique sites each with their own unique code. While writing our extension, we were constantly in touch with the product, project and development managers at Magento to ensure that we deliver the absolute best experience to the merchant, but more importantly, to their end user, the client.” – Celebros

    Tip #4: Be Relevant and Differentiate Yourself From Other Extensions

    Some extra tips from world esteemed developers:

    “Wherever possible, use plugins (preferably on methods that have an @api annotation) to implement your functionality. This will reduce the scope for possible conflicts with other extensions, and lessen support issues later down the road (and who doesn't love that?).”Fooman

    “Chances are you're investing in a Magento 2.0 platform for two major reasons: 1) you want a better client side experience along with, 2) an improved, more nimble usability for your team. Why not hold the same standards to your tech stack? Stick to extensions that talk with each other both on the front end as well as the back end—meaning they make the most of the audience and data you have already acquired! For example, if one technology collects real time browsing data or even social influencer data, ensure they're sharing that data in real time with your A/B testing or personalization provider. The data you collect is only as great as what you do with it!”Addshoppers

    Tip #5: Know Your Audience

    Bear in mind that your target audience is a service provider, whether or not they are technical wizards or not. Be confident to explain any specialized terminology and use examples and data to notify your tale to whomever is reading your description. Supply just adequate detail to get your crucial benefits throughout to your buyer.

    Some extra tips from world esteemed developers:

    “Seek customer feedback to improve your extension. As early as possible, seek feedback from the early adopters of your extension. What are the killer features they get excited about? Was anything confusing to set up or use? Are any logical core features missing? Was the documentation helpful? This feedback will make your product stronger, plus help to create a good first impression for those all-important first reviews. Look for trends in feedback and be open-minded. Early feedback could lead you to your best code/product tweaks. But also trust your instinct and don't allow yourself to get distracted from the core extension purpose and target customer.”Fooman

    “When working on ideas for Magento 2.0 extensions, rethink the features you’re going to implement by analyzing what customers wanted and used more with their Magento 1.x extensions. It’s a great opportunity to create even better products!”Amasty

Magento and the community itself provide multiple chances to engage in conversations with numerous experts and potential customers.

    Tip #7: Learn About Shared Packages

    The purpose of Shared Packages is to sort out your Composer modules. Shared Packages functionality gives developers more fine-grained control for sorting out code. Developers that already have or envision having different items in their portfolio (whether they be extensions or themes) that share normal code and libraries will want to exploit Shared Packages. This functionality permits developers to advertise their items as a set and increase their sales. A developer can specify, for instance, that in order for customers to run extension B, customers must first purchase and install extension A. Creation of shared packages is significant just for products for the Magento 2.0 platform. All shared code and shared libraries can be zipped and uploaded one-by-one (one zip file per module) via the “Shared Packages” tab.

    Tip #8: Think Carefully About Pricing

    It is hard to locate the right harmony between what it costs to create and keep up an extension and how much a trader will pay for it. Assess the competitive landscape and client request in so as to come up with the appropriate pricing model.

    Some extra tips from world esteemed developers:

    “Pricing your Magento 2.0 extension is an important exercise that could have a big impact on its adoption, perception & more. Most developers are familiar with models that are akin to the app stores (Apple, Google, Microsoft etc.), with free apps, paid apps, in-app purchases etc. As with any product on the market, think about the customer - the retail merchant -- and the value your extension will provide to them. If beta tests or data has shown you a certain Return on Investment (ROI) or benefit that you can produce for the merchant, price such that you can provide at least a 2x-3x ROI within 12 months. Having a scalable pricing model that delivers significant ROI and business outcomes is key to helping both developers & merchants realize value for extensions that power innovation, efficiency & revenue growth.”Windsor Circle

    Tip #10: Over-Inform

    Give your own documentation to guarantee that the dealers are fittingly instructed on your extensions.

    Some extra tips from world esteemed developers:

    “No matter how good your support may have been with Magento 1.x, you’d want to make it even better now with Magento 2.0. You’ll have even more questions from customers which are not very familiar with the new platform and how it actually works. This would also include detailed manuals and user guides, FAQs, knowledge base and everything that helps your customer in understanding Magento 2.0 and extensions for it.” - Amasty
