Namespaces and Class Names of User Files¶
The namespace and class names of user files follow the same rules as class names of the TYPO3 Core files do.
The namespace declaration of each user file should show where the file
belongs inside its extension. The namespace starts with
"Vendor\MyNamespace\", where "Vendor" is your vendor name and
"MyNamespace" is the extension name in UpperCamelCase. Then follows the
name of the subfolder of
Classes/, in which the file is located

User files with these class names are commonly found in the
typo3conf/ext/ directory. Optionally these files can be
installed to the
typo3/ext/ directory to be shared by many
