TYPO3Buddy: tutorial to build a TYPO3 website
What is TYPO3?
TYPO3 is one of the more advanced content management systems (CMS) for web based applications. TYPO3 is a good choice, because it's flexible, it has many users thus high maintenance and a dedicated community. It is however known to be difficult to learn. TYPO3Buddy tries to end that, or at least pave a way to start developing with TYPO3.
What's TYPO3Buddy about?
The purpose of the TYPO3Buddy website is to document how to rebuild the TYPO3Buddy website from scratch with TYPO3 and Fluid or the Templavoila extension in either a Windows or a Linux environment. Both with Apache 2.x, MySQL 5.5.x and PHP 5.4.x installed. It's a TYPO3 tutorial: a beginners' guide as well as a reference for more advanced developers. Read more...
Fluid, Templavoila or traditional templating?
TYPO3Buddy offers two methods of templating. One is Templavoila, which is very popular and used for many projects. The other is Fluid, TYPO3's next generation templating engine. If you plan on using TYPO3 for a long time, Fluid may be the better choice, but Templavoila is still actively maintained. Furthermore, we will have a traditional templating tutorial in the near future.
What do I need to start?
We assume you have a web server and MySQL server up and running and some working knowledge regarding web server setup, including the configuration of a virtual host. A passion for fine web based technology would be welcome. If you don't have that yet, you will get it, as TYPO3 is one of the best CMS'es in the world. You start, of course, with the installation of TYPO3. After that you'll cover the basics.
