    Starting module development Link to this post


    Could someone give me a quick intro to what is needed to start a simple module? I have looked at some of the other modules developed and can see generally there are the following files/folders:
    -code (how do the php files work in this folder?)
    -css (how do these get included in the cms/content output)
    -javascript (how is the javascript called?)
    -templates (I take it these are the templates for display to website visitor??)

    looking forward to some help and maybe a pointer / base module template/file & folder structure.

    this is a very brief documentation page - http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=creating-modules

    You are correct in your format as it stands! The Code is automatically found by SilverStripe and same with the templates! all you need to do is make sure you have that _config.php file. If you don't have any config settings for it then you still need that file with <?php ?> at least in it

    If you have any more questions feel free to ask What is it that you are going to develop? out of interest
