The aim of this tutorial is to show how to use the SAV Library Kickstarter.
Creating the Extension¶

A new form will be displayed. If your have already created extensions, there name are displayed on the left hand side.
Three library types are available:
Plus- The SAV Library Kickstarter generates an extension which requires the SAV Library Plus to be loaded. The SAV Library Plus Extension is stable since many years. It makes it possible to develop extensions without any PHP coding, thanks to simple configuration parameters. The SAV Library Plus extension relies on a conventional approach for the queries but uses Fluid for the rendering of views.
Mvc- The SAV Library Kickstarter generates an extension which requires the SAV Library Mvc to be loaded. The SAV Library Mvc Extension is the new development of the SAV Library which fully relies on the MVC approach with Extbase and Fluid. The configuration parameters to develop extension without any PHP coding are the same as in SAV Library Plus. This library is in beta state because it does not implement yet all the features available with SAV Library Plus. However available features are enough for most extensions.
Basic- This new feature was introduced in version 1.0.0 to kickstart extensions based on Extbase and Fluid. This basic generation includes the database, models, repositories and TCA generation for all the types available when using the SAV Library Plus or SAV Library Mvc. The controller displays a very basic template.
