I use some extensions, such as the extension Alpha search module in Magento 1.9 but this module does not exist for Magento 2, so I need to convert the module to Magento 2. Can you suggest any tool or tips so I can easily convert a Magento 1.9 extension to a Magento 2.0 extension?

You can use code-migration tool: https://github.com/magento/code-migration

To use it, follow the below steps:

  1. Download code from the above link. unzip and upload it to your home/user/ directory, not in public_html or another root doc directory.
  2. login to your server via shell
  3. Now go to the "code-migration-develop", where you upload the migration tool code. Run the following command in the root directory of this toolkit

    composer install

  4. now go to the bin directory: cd bin

  5. Execute command: php migrate.php migrateModuleStructure /home/YOUR_USERNAME/public_html/MAGENTO_DIR ../

    It will convert the structure and you will see these converted structure in the directory: code-migration-develop/app/code

Run below commands to convert Layout & Php code

Run php migrate.php convertLayout ../

Run php migrate.php convertPhpCode ../

your code converts complete.

Hope it helps!
