Extension Configuration

This item opens the form for the configuration of the extension.



Click on the icons at the right hand side of Extension Configuration:

  • to access to this section of the documentation.

  • to save your configuration.

  • to generate the extension.

  • Title for the extension manager: title which will be displayed in extension manager.

  • Vendor name: vendor name (mandatory).

  • Title for the plugin: title which will be displayed in the plugin selector.

  • Description: use this field to describe the aim of the extension.

  • State: selector which specifies the state of the extension.

  • Dependencies: specify here the dependencies of the extension.

    Dependencies must be comma-separated. If only extension names are entered, dependencies will be added in ext_emconf.php file without constraints.

    The SAV Library Kickstarter generates automatically the dependency to SAV Library Plus or SAV Library Mvc for composer.json and ext_emconf.php files.

    Constraints can be added for ext_emconf.php or composer.json. The following example is taken from the extension sav_library_example10 which depends on extension maps2.

    maps2(emconf:5.2.3-0.0.0), jweiland/maps2(composer:^5.2.3)

    The dependency to maps2 will be added to ext_emconf.php with the constraint 5.2.3-0.0.0.

    'depends' => [
       'typo3' => '8.7.0-9.5.99',
       'maps2' => '5.2.3-0.0.0',
       'sav_library_plus' => '9.5.0-0.0.0'

    The extension maps2 has a composer support jweiland/maps2. In such case, you must enter directly the dependency, i.e. jweiland/maps2, instead of the extension name. The dependency is added to composer.json with the constraint ^5.2.3.

    "require": {
       "typo3/cms-core": ">=8.7,<10.0",
       "jweiland/maps2": "^5.2.3",
       "typo3-ter/sav-library-plus": ">=9.5.0"


    When the extension name is used typo3-ter/ will be prepended to the extension name to build the dependency in composer.json.

    For example, the following dependencies are used for the extension sav_library_example9 which depends on the extension sav_charts.


    It generates the following require part in composer.json.

    "require": {
       "typo3/cms-core": ">=8.7,<10.0",
       "typo3-ter/sav-charts": "^9.5.0",
       "typo3-ter/sav-library-plus": ">=9.5.0"
  • Author: use this field to set the extension's author.

  • Author email: use this field to set the author's email.

  • Library type: selector which specifies the type of extension which will be generated. The Basic type can be used to kickstart extension using Fluid and Exbase. Icons at the right hand side of the selector are still experimental. They should make it possible to migrate a Plus type extension to a Mvc type extension and vice-versa.

  • Compatibility: selector which defines the compatibility of the extension. This selector evolves with the version of TYPO3. If an extension becomes incompatible, it has to be upgraded.

  • Add TypoScript configuration: if selected, TypoScript configuration files are added (only for Plus type. For Basic and Mvc TypoScript configuration files are always added.

  • Add a wizard plugin icon: if selected, a wizard icon will be added to the plugin. The wizard icon file must be named ExtensionWizard.svg and put in the directory Resources/Public/Icons.

  • Keep the file ext_localconf.php if it exists: set this option if you manually modify the ext_localconf.php file. It will prevent the SAV Library Kickstarter to rebuild it.

  • Debug Queries (Use only for developments): selector which defines the level of debuging. The options are:

    • Off: no debugging is provided.

    • Queries with errors: debugging is provided for queries with errors.

    • All queries: debugging is provided for all queries.


    For security reasons, set this selector to Off in the final version of your extension.

    By default, debug information is provided by the TYPO3 Core debug() function. However, it is often easier to use the TYPO3 Logging system by adding the following configuration to typo3conf/AdditionalConfiguration.php:

    $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['LOG']['YolfTypo3']['SavLibraryPlus']['writerConfiguration'] = [
        \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Log\LogLevel::DEBUG => [
            \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Log\Writer\FileWriter::class => [
                'logFile' => \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Core\Environment::getVarPath() . '/log/SavLibraryPlus.log'
  • New version: use these checkboxes to automatically ugrade the version of your extension.


    • If you set z, one unit will be added to the z part.

    • It you set y, one unit will be added to the y part, while the z part is reset to 0.

    • If you set x, one unit, will be added to the x part, while the y and z parts will be reset.
