Joomla Extension Builder (JoomExtBuild) Script

Joomla Extension Builder is a set of scripts written to automate some of the steps in the workflow of developing Joomla extensions. Written in the phing scripting language.

It consists of two parts (show diagrammatically below) ;

  • "update_repo" which updates a repository (or just a holding folder) from a Joomla! installation or test server with the files that make up that chosen extension.
  • "build_extension" that takes those files and creates an installable package from them.

Joomla Extension Builder and support documentation is available on GitHub. If you have any queries or comments about it, please contact me.
