In this Joomla development tutorial we write the base file of a Joomla module. Joomla module development is an excellent place to begin your Joomla development if you’re not comfortable with the intricacies of either plugin development or larger component development. You’ll learn the basics of the Joomla module base file in this lesson.

The base file is a PHP file located at the base of the Joomla module directory and is used as the entry point for the CMS when it includes the module. This file is simple to setup and contains relatively few lines of code. In this tutorial we will return to our sample module code and continue development.
