Magento extension development

Whether you are driven by the need of having unique functionality that is missing in any of the existing 5,660 extensions on the marketplace and myriads more beyond, or building an extension from scratch for sale, we’re happy to help by rendering a full spectrum of Magento extension development & customization services.

Proprietary & commercial Magento extension development

Throughout the years we’ve developed over 100 extensions of different complexity to let businesses implement unique functionality that is not available either with an out of the box Magento installation or in ready-made extensions.

Commercial extension development

We bundle unique functionality ideas into commercially available extensions compliant with Magento’s Extension Quality Program that you can sell on Magento Marketplace.

Extension customization

We carry out advanced customization of extensions developed by third-party vendors when there is a need for Custom Magento development services to extend or modify their existing functionality.

When introducing customizations we also make sure that extensions retain a logical and efficient coding structure, acceptable performance and scalability, and remain compatible with Magento’s core.

Compatibility enablement

With 5,660 ready-made extensions on the Marketplace and about 1,000 themes out there in the wild, it is highly unlikely that their random combination will work without a hitch — and that’s especially true when it comes to extensions and themes made by different vendors.

Staylime helps businesses address these annoyances by providing full compatibility enablement along with related Magento services, be it a trivial or a desperate case.

Cross-extension compatibility

Oftentimes, one extension overrides the default functionality used by the other leaving you wondering why things do not work as expected.

Whether they extend the same classes, duplicate the same functionality, or affect the same files in your Magento installation, we can help you out by modifying the two (or three, or as many as you’re experiencing problems with) to ensure their cross-compatibility.

Theme & extension compatibility

Whenever you install a poorly-built ready-made or custom Magento theme it might so happen that some extensions will fail to display on the storefront partially or even fully.

Whether it is because theme installation has introduced new functionality, modified the existing one, or rendered extension files inaccessible, we can help you out by modifying the extensions in question in a way so that they understand the functionality or the layout of the newly installed theme.

Extension refactoring

Be it a ready-made extension bought by you on the Marketplace, or a custom extension developed solely for you by a third-party vendor, chances are high it needs refactoring.

Extreme server loads, poor performance, missing or invalid functionality, you name it — throughout the years we’ve seen a range of impacts that poor architectural choices can have on an extension or the environment it runs on.

But don’t give in to despair just yet — whether you have an extension that fails to work, produces errors, or requires performance optimization, we will be happy to refactor it for you.

Functionality merge

Recall the last time you had to choose between extensions because they just wouldn’t work with one another. We bet you wished that there was one that would incorporate the functionality of both, but unfortunately there was none and we feel for you.

The renewed webstore was to achieve the following mission-critical goals:

  • Hand adding a spoiler to a lego car

    Adding the missing functionality to the extension that is used most.

  • Hand putting a lego brick on top of two other bricks

    Building a third extension that integrates the functionality of the existing two.

Conversion to extension

Staylime helps to extract the existing code from Magento’s core and wrap it into a separate working extension in case custom functionality has been hard-coded.

Extension design

Let’s face it: out-of-the-box design, business logic, and usability of most commercial Magento extensions are poor.

This results in end users resorting to vendors for help with fixing layouts, styling, functionality, or understanding extension behavior altogether. We feel for the users, yet we know that few great developers are good at design.

Here at Staylime we specialize in making the journey of Magento users smooth and appealing, especially when it comes to extensions as the entire functionality of the platform is essentially bundled into them.

Revamp & stylization

We redesign the interface of existing extensions in cases when they have a poor look-and-feel or do not play well with the theme you have installed.

Extension migration

  • One man handling books to another

    Data migration

    Oftentimes existing Magento 1 extensions possess data that needs to be transferred to the Magento 2 version of the extension, or to its functional analogue during migration. Whichever the case, we develop custom scripts that allow to perform the migration of critical extension data to your new store.

    Functionality migration

    We help our customers retain the functionality of their existing extensions during migration to Magento 2 by installing their counterparts on the new store, suggesting analogous extensions with akin functionality, or replicating the functionality ourselves by developing a custom extension.

Extension audit

In the development of Magento solutions, Staylime’s experts offer extension audit services to help you choose the most productive and least time consuming approach for your business.
