Joomla Development 101: Tutorial 15 – View

We begin to close out our lecture series Joomla Development 101 with a focus on the view file of a module file. This is the final lesson dealing with unique portions of the Joomla module. We will move quickly through creating a view for your module and what should be included.

The view file is a standard required file / folder for a Joomla module contains all the code related to the visual display and output from a module. This should be the only location where code is written which will display things to the user.

Joomla Development 101: Tutorial 14 – Module Helper

Joomla development continues in this Joomla development tutorial with a  focus on the helper file included with a Joomla module. This helper file is an optional file used to provide a bit of organization and clarity to a Joomla module.

The PHP helper file for a Joomla module acts very similar to the helper file we explored previously with the Joomla plugins. As we near the end of the module development tutorial of Joomla Development 101 we will begin to focus on the finishing touches which will make our Joomla module stand out from the crowd.
