The whole point of Component Creator is to take the tedious work out of Joomla development, giving you more time to spend doing other things. And it certainly seems to be working. We’ve calculated that to date Component Creator has saved a total of 17 years of our users time!

What’s the coolest thing you could do with 2 extra hours?

One of the main benefits of using Component Creator is the amount of time you save. Why spend time creating tables and fields when you could be doing something more interesting?

This got us thinking. We calculated that on average each Component Creator user saves at least two hours of work on every component made. So what could you do with those two hours instead?
