by Manish Yadav Co-Founder
To develop modules on PrestaShop, it is very important to know about its technical architecture. Developers have build PrestaShop, keeping the benefits of third party module in mind.  This third party architecture, based on a principle similar to that of the Model–view–controller (MVC) architecture, delivers a greater level of customization to the shopping cart software. PrestaShop has a three-tier architecture comprising of Data/Object, Data Control, and Design.  This is 3-tier architecture is of strategic importance because it becomes easier for the developers to read the software code and edit it in a less span of time. This architecture not only improves the situation for the developers but all the stakeholders in the software development lifecycle.  Graphic designers and HTML integrators can invariably work within their confined theme of the folder without really getting into the PHP coding.  Therefore, to create a module for PrestaShop, you need to hire prestashop programmers in india with a thorough understanding of its architecture. 

Modules refer to small programs that add functionalities to a software suite. PrestaShop offers an expansive array of modules that helps the e-commerce enterprises to customize PrestaShop as per their requirement.  For the developers, this means a considerable increase in opportunities to customize software and to showcase one’s skills. There a technical principle behind a PrestaShop module, and without this knowledge, a developer cannot just work on existing PrestaShop module or build a new one.  So some of these principles behind the entire module structure are:

A root folder with the module name containing the entire module files. This root folder is found in the Prestashop’s ‘Modules Folder’.

 A core PHP file with the module name located in the root folder. 

An icon file named ‘logo.gif’ representing the module.

Some ‘.tpl’ files comprising of the module’s theme.

 Some language files if the modules or its theme have text to display

 The last folder in the block with the module name and found under the themes folder. It contains ‘.tpl’ and language.

The basic structures of all the PrestaShop modules are almost similar. For building a module, a developer has to create a module folder with the same name of the module. The module name should not have any alphanumeric characters, hyphens and symbols. The entire name should be in lower case. This folder should contain a PHP file with the same name and will be completely responsible for the entire processing.  Furthermore, the .tpl files need to be placed at the root of the module’s folder.  These are some basic module development insights. There is much more to it, loads of steps and testing. All this is accomplished by hiring a PrestaShop developer who has developed modules for e-commerce sites.
