Extension builder

Extension key: extension_builder

The Extension Builder helps you build and manage your Extbase based TYPO3 CMS extensions - it provides a GUI to kickstart your extension - however, note that you should still familiarize yourself with the files generated and their uses.

The extension can be installed via composer, traditionally or by cloning the source.

Via composer:

composer require friendsoftypo3/extension-builder

To install the extension in the “traditional” way, go to the extension manager and get the extension “extension_builder” from TER.

To install this extension by cloning the source, open the terminal and go to the directory typo3conf/ext/ and enter:

git clone

To install this extension by downloading the source, open the url Extension Builder. There you can download a ZIP file, which you can import directly into the Extension Manager. Alternatively you copy the unpacked extension folder to the directory typo3conf/ext/.

Then you can use the Extension Manager to activate the Extension Builder.
