Enhancements/New Code Templates

The approach taken by Component Architect, using the flexibility of marked up code templates, extensive component definition and an adaptable code generation process provides the opportunity for almost unlimited scope in the functionality and features that can be automatically included in new components.

A number of enhancements to the Joomla! 3.x Enhanced code template are already being investigated, such as:

  • Support of notification emails
  • Log functionality for CRUD changes
  • Cascade functionality in front end (currently only available in the administrator area)
  • Enhanced layouts in front end (a basic tree view has been included but a number of other modern layouts are being investigated)
  • Greater flexibility in administrator list views (select columns and filters in Options)

Besides development of enhancements to the two additional Professional code templates (Joomla! 3.x Enhanced and Joomla! 3.x Test Data Generator) provided with Component Architect Professional, further development of new code templates is planned.  Initial focus will be in developing the following code templates:

  • Joomla!FoF (Framework on Framework) code template - to provide both a learning tool and code generation for FoF components/extensions.
  • Joomla Framework code template - to allow non-CMS based application generation

Ideas for future code templates include - no development currently planned:

  • Selenium System Testing code templates
  • PHPUnit Testing code template
  • Durpal code template
  • Commuity Builder AhaWow code template
