About the Book

Extensions are the cornerstone of TYPO3 CMS and an essential part of every TYPO3 installation. The fastest and most efficient method for developing extensions is by utilising the Extbase framework and Fluid templating engine. This book provides all you need to know to get up and running with Extbase and Fluid in an easy-to-follow format with real-world examples. The book was written to help TYPO3 developers produce clean code in modern standards, backed by contemporary programming principles.

Authored by Patrick Lobacher and Michael Schams, who are well-known members of the TYPO3 community, the second edition of this book has been updated and covers all new aspects of TYPO3 CMS 7 LTS.

From the basics of object-orientated programming in PHP to the principles of Domain Driven Design and the MVC concept (Model-View-Controller), the authors explain theoretical foundations as well as practical solutions. Advanced technologies such as AJAX, FAL, Backend Modules, JSON-Views, the TYPO3 Property Mapper and more are also included.

After working through this book, extension developers have all knowledge on hand to master TYPO3 projects of all sizes and complexities in Extbase and Fluid.

This book is a translation into English of TYPO3 Extbase (Deutsch) which was originally written in Deutsch.
