Get Started

Welcome to the Joomla Developers Manual

The purpose of this guide is to give developers an up to date guide showing best practice in writing and maintaining Joomla extensions. It also offers a migration path for extensions from older Joomla! versions to the latest standard. We will run through the tools and process required to set up a local development environment with the ability to get the most out of the guide as a developer.
