Announcing Module Standard 1.0 and Commercially Supported Modules

There are over 1,300 SilverStripe modules supported by an active open source community, delivering many additional functionalities to SilverStripe CMS such as blogging, user customisable form and workflow. We have taken these modules one step further with a newly proposed SilverStripeModule Standard 1.0 and Commercially Supported Modules.

Module Standard 1.0
The SilverStripe Module Standard defines a set of conventions that high quality SilverStripe modules should follow. It’s a bit like PSR for SilverStripe CMS modules and is of course optional (though very much recommended). The Module Standard will become part of the SilverStripe developer docs (there is a pull request under discussion at present). Future suggested improvements can be raised as a pull request once the initial standard is merged.
