Magento 2 – Creating a Magento Module: A Beginner’s Guide

Magento's modular architecture empowers developers to customize and extend functionality. In this tutorial, we'll guide you through the essential steps to create a basic Magento module.

Here is our Magento module creation guide.

Step 1: Set Up Your Development Environment

Ensure you have a Magento instance for development. Familiarize yourself with Magento's file structure and basic module concepts.

Step 2: Create the Module Directory Structure

Navigate to the app/code directory and create the directory structure for your module. For instance, if your module is named MyModule, the path should be app/code/Vendor/MyModule.

Step 3: Define Module Configuration

Inside your module directory, create a registration.php file to register your module:

    \Magento\Framework\Component\ComponentRegistrar::MODULE, 'Vendor_MyModule', __DIR__ 

Step 4: Create Module Configuration File

Create a module.xml file in app/code/Vendor/MyModule/etc:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<config xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation="urn:magento:framework:Module/etc/module.xsd">
    <module name="Vendor_MyModule" setup_version="1.0.0"/>

Step 5: Enable the Module

Run the following command in the Magento root directory to enable your module:

php bin/magento module:enable Vendor_MyModule

Step 6: Verify Your Module

Check the enabled modules by running:

php bin/magento module:status

Your module, Vendor_MyModule, should appear in the list.

Congratulations! You've created a minimal Magento module using our Magento module creation guide. While this module doesn't include a custom controller, you can build upon this foundation to add more features and functionality as needed. Happy coding!
