Great resource about how you can develop simple, but powerful plugins yourself
A very useful and well-written addition to the available literature.
This book is the plugin bible - a reference for any serious Joomla developer.
I wish this book had been written earlier it would have saved me so much time
Interesting book that explains step by step how plugins work and how to create them yourself. Together with the elaborate code you get solid knowledge on how Joomla plugins work.
Excellent book on developing Joomla Plugins! Now you don't have any excuses left ... read the book and start writing your own Plugins.
I thought I knew plugin development, until I read Jisse's book. My plugin adventure has now really started!
This well written guide explains you step by step how to create plugins. It covers the basics as well as the advanced aspects of plugins. Well done!
I purchased the book from Amazon thinking it might give me a kick start. I was a bit disappointed at first to see that the parts I initially read was content I already had figured out. However, I was putting together a K2 plugin and was struggling to properly indent the k2 categories in the plugin configuration. I finally checked your book and there was the answer, clearly laid out! A bit of copy pasta from the K2 files into your skeleton and I had it! After all, the book has been of great use and it saved me lots of time!
Really impressed. And as an avid coder I found some interesting concepts that I will try out in future projects. Over all in a short report I give this book an A - well done and well researched.
I wanted to write a plugin to be able to have superscripts in the title of the articles. However, because I'm not a in-depth programmer, it was difficult to start with. The book was a great practical help.
I have to tell you, I love this book. I never thought that a book on plugins could be so extensive, well-thought, well-written, greatly illustrated and outright informative for people ranging from relatively newbies to old dogs like me.
I wanted to learn programming Joomla and this book was very helpful for me. It is well readable and makes it fun to learn Joomla!
The best Joomla investment I've made in 10 years!
This book should be read by all developers of Joomla plugins! It is well structured and gives you a complete insight into this powerful feature which makes Joomla! that good. My background: I'm in the Production Leadership Team in the official Joomla! project and also a long-time developer of Joomla! extensions. With many years of experience, I still could find a lot of useful tips in this book. Get the book and learn how to write plugins right. You will not regret it!
This easy to read and well organized book thoroughly explores key building blocks for writing plugins and effective Joomla extensions. A must read for developers and teams building extensions or supporting Joomla CMS
I like Joomla for a very long time but never found such a well done book, simple to understand but very complete.
