Book Description

TYPO3 is the enterprise-level content management system for the Web. It is large, feature-rich and very flexible—a lot of this flexibility comes through extensions written by the community. Extensions make it possible to use TYPO3 to drive any type of website, including e-commerce, blogs, social networks, catalogs, and many more. TYPO3 can be completely customized using extensions; however creating an extension can be a challenging task.

This book describes TYPO3 extension creation as it should be done. It starts from an overview of the TYPO3 API and provides recommendations on when and how to use this extensive API. Next it describes the TYPO3 extension generation process. It covers all generation options and emphasizes important decisions that extension developers should be aware of.

Since front-end plugins are the most popular TYPO3 extension type, the book has a chapter dedicated to the process of programming front-end plugins. We then move on to back-end plugin programming. All chapters stress best practices and come with unique tips from the author, who wants his experience to be shared with the TYPO3 community. The book finishes with a chapter about improving code and writing documentation.
