Chapter 6. Write Magento 2.0 Extensions – a Great Place to Go

In the previous chapter, we created a custom Magento 2.0 theme called CompStore. However, what do you think about extending our Magento expertise by creating our own extension? In this chapter, we will create a new extension called TweetsAbout, add a brand new functionality in our theme, learn the main concepts of Magento extension development, and take a look at how the extension packaging process works.

The following topics will be covered in this chapter:

  • Magento development overview

  • The Zend framework basics

  • The Magento 2.0 extension structure

  • The Twitter REST API

  • Twitter OAuth
