13 February 2016

How does a new feature end up in Joomla? Or, how does Joomla's development cycle works, based on a story of the new Category Item Counter.

Peter will discuss that with a new feature (Category Item Counter) that ended up in Joomla 3.5:

  • The purpose of the feature
  • where and how the idea for the feature was created
  • how the Joomla community has helped to develop this function
  • how Joomla development cycle works, including testing procedures, and who is Travis?
  • problems with different core components
  • the hidden secret of com_categories
  • how to add a Category Item Counter to your own components.
