Looking for a book for Joomla 1.0.x component development

Post by cdtkoenig » Tue May 27, 2008 7:42 am

Hi,
I wrote a first Joomla 1.0.x component using various tutos, it works but but my code looks like a bunch of copy/paste.Now, I really want to move forward into clean J! component modeling and, best practises using a fully documented API. There are some Joomla 1.5 dev books but I cannot found any J! 1.0.x :'(

Does anyone knows such a book ?

I don't think that there are any for 1.0...

For 1.5:
  • Learning Joomla! 1.5 Extension Development - Creating Modules, Components, and Plug-Ins with PHP
    by Joseph L. LeBlanc
  • Mastering Joomla! 1.5 Extension and Framework Development - The Professional Guide to Programming Joomla!
    by James Kennard

Hi there,

If that is the case, then what sort of reference to you use to build a joomla 1.0.x component?

Can reference of joomla 1.5.x component developement to use as the reference to build for joomla 1.0.x component?

I also heard rumours that developement for joomla 1.0.x would be stopped? is it true?

You might find some useful info here:
Developing Joomla components http://forum.joomla.org/viewforum.php?f=39
The Joomla core components might give you a good insight in the working of components.
Furthermore the "API" (from Joomla or Mambo's API if it's for 1.0) documentates functions / classes and so on which would speed up development a lot.

"native" Joomla 1.5 components differ a lot from Joomla 1.0 components, especially if they use the "MVC" pattern.
I also heard rumours that developement for joomla 1.0.x would be stopped? is it true?
Yes, that's true indeed. Currently the Joomla 1.0 core code won't be developed any further, but there are still third party developers writing code for 3rd party extensions.

However, the current focus is on Joomla 1.5 and the future 1.6.
Safety patches for 1.0 will be released if any safety issues are discovered,
but only until the release of Joomla 1.6.
Then only 1.5 and 1.6 will be officially supported.
