Hello fellas

As most of you probably know, one of the most requested features is a Module Creator. As Joomla developers we have an idea of how should it be done, but we would like to hear what would you expect from a module creator. 

Come on! help us to help you! :)

A seamless link to the component creator would be a good start. Are you planning anything with plugins?

Hi Gordon!

Linking it with Component Creator is our starting point indeed. Plugins are the next step, we have talked about it, but there is nothing planned yet. Anything else you can think about? :)

Hola Andres:
Esto es otra excelente idea. Para este proyecto de "Module Creator", sería bueno contar con lo siguiente:

  • Tener a disposición los campos pre-definidos de Joomla
  • Tener integrado un archivo CSS, así como un archivo JS
  • Tener un campo personalizado, el cual defina que diseño mostrar de la carpeta tmpl. Suponiendo que se desee más de un diseño, es decir, que a parte del archivo típico default.php se puedan definir otros. No sería definir el diseño, ya que eso le toca al desarrollador luego, sino, que ya tener estos archivos vinculados correctamente, y que solo sea modificarlos a ellos.
La parte difícil sería como dejar algo para el archivo helper, que es el corazón de los módulos. Pero si planean realizar el Module Creator, para el componente que se crea bajo Component Creator Pues el asunto está resuelto, ya que sería poner de ejemplo algunas consultas a la tabla o tablas del componente, que el desarrollador pueda usar. Lo que sería bueno definir que tipo de consultas se pueden poner, si básicas o algo complejas. Por supuesto, todo esto a modo de jemplo, luego el desarrollador deberá acomodar las cosas.

Creo que por el momento es lo que se me ocurre a primera vista :). Saludos

PD: Andres disculpa el español, pero es que me era más rápido escribirlo así que en ingles.

If the component has a category field, offer to build a module that displays a list of items by category - and with the option for one or more categories, and the option to include nested categories.  This probably provides the "mundane" work of building a module.  Designing the view is our responsibility, of course.

It seems to me that the typical module types would be a single item, all items, or items by category.  Perhaps for modules that list items, the module can provide filters or sorting in terms of "latest," "by author," or "by hit count."  Perhaps you could provide a place for us to add custom SQL that will filter or sort on fields we add.

Also, if a link is provided on an item within a list, give us the option to have the detail page show in a popup as an alternative to reloading in the current page.
