What can I do with Component Creator?

Component Creator is a Joomla scaffolding tool that will save you at least several hours of development time on the most simple components, and possibly days on very complex components.

Although Component Creator can get you up to 90% development time of a final component, most projects will still need some custom development. Advanced component development requires being familiar with Joomla’s framework, PHP, JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and MySQL.

Check out our features, and have a look at our Github tracker for future plans.

Will my components still be functional once my premium subscription expires?

Yes. Once you have built a component it belongs to you. After your subscription expires, you will no longer be able to build the components in your account that exceeds what can be built using our free version.

Will my components be deleted once my premium subscription expires?

No. We will keep all your components safe and sound until you decide to delete them. If your Premium subscription has expired and you need to rebuild an old component with more than 2 tables, you simply need to purchase a new premium subscription.

Where can I get support?

Premium users have access to email support via our contact form. Please note that our support only includes help using Component Creator features and not with Joomla development in general.

Will my components be compatible with previous Joomla! versions?

We cannot guarantee that your component will be compatible with Joomla! 3.7.x or older. With the major updates in Joomla!, code behaviour and function names might change, which can lead to errors when you try to install your component. 

If you are experiencing these issues and you are a premium user, you can contact us through our ticket system and we will help you fix the problem. 

I have found a bug, where should I report it?

Please report any issues found on our Github Issue Tracker.

Yes, we can. You can select Custom Component / Web Development in our contact form to ask us for an estimate. Please be as detailed as possible in your request.
