Installation

Admin rights are required to install and activate the Extension Builder.

Composer mode

If your TYPO3 installation uses Composer, install the latest Extension Builder through:

composer require friendsoftypo3/extension-builder

If you are not using the latest version of the Extension Builder, you need to add a version constraint, for example:

composer require friendsoftypo3/extension-builder:"^10.0"

Installing the extension prior to TYPO3 11.4

Before TYPO3 11.4 it was still necessary to manually activate extensions installed via Composer using the Extension Manager. Activate it as follows:

  • Navigate to Admin Tools > Extensions > Installed Extensions
  • Search for extension_builder
  • Activate the extension by clicking on the Activate button in the A/D column

Legacy mode

If you are working with a TYPO3 installation that does not use Composer, install the extension in the Extension Manager:

  • Navigate to Admin Tools > Extensions > Get Extensions.
  • Click on Update now
  • Search for extension_builder
  • Click Import and install on the side of the extension entry

and activate it:

  • Navigate to Admin Tools > Extensions > Installed Extensions
  • Search for extension_builder
  • Activate the extension by clicking on the Activate button in the A/D column
