You can use Fluid in TYPO3 to do one of the following:

  • Create a template (theme) using a combination of TypoScript FLUIDTEMPLATE and Fluid. Check out the Sitepackage Tutorial which walks you through the creation of a sitepackage extension.
  • Create Custom Content Elements in addition to the already existing content elements TYPO3 supplies.
  • The previous point describes the lightweight components which are created using a combination of TypoScript and Fluid. If you need more functionality or flexibility in your content element, you can create a content plugin using a combination of Extbase and Fluid. This is explained in Developing TYPO3 Extensions with Extbase and Fluid
  • Use Fluid to create emails using the TYPO3 Mail API.
  • Use Fluid in Backend Modules.
