Faster way to build extensions in AbanteCart
« on: November 13, 2012, 01:02:24 PM »
Attention Extension Developers!

Please try "Extension Developer Tools". These tools will help you build extension faster and avoid dealing with manual process of files and directories creations. You can build language definitions with these tools as well.

Any contribution to future expansion of these tools are welcome!!

I suspect this is the update for which I've been waiting.

Will try it out pretty soon.  Thanks!

Yes. this is to replace first extension we had with extension builder.
Now we build on this extension and improve it to be come extension dev suite.

We plan to add more features to generate code based on all AbanteCart extension API, such as menu, data set, attributes, forms, layout, etc.

Have installed your developper_tool
Gives an entry (not translated) in system menu forwarding to an empty page. Huh.

I think you missed to copy some files in the package. Did you copy developer_tools directory to extensions directory on your abantecart?

Ok. I have downloaded the v1.0 developer_tools.tar.gz (by the link at top) which was not updated with many files missing. I took the zip on github and ok now. You should put a version/date in file name.

perhaps you missed that post was over 2 years ago  and further down in a more current post there is a new link.

This is the computer world,  the only thing that is constant is CHANGE  ;)

But thanks for reading and trying to learn about AbanteCart.
