Hi,

I’m very pleased about the Magento Shop and would like to create some Shops with it.
But right now I cannot find any information or tutorial which describes how to implement a hole new component into magento.
Just extending or overriding existing ones.
And without informations about the Structure and the functionality of the backend or about the class structure, its almost impossible to do this in an appropiate amount of time.

Has anyone found a tutorial ? or something like that.

Thx

I think the Screen cast on themes does tell you that doesn’t it?

I think Maze is asking about creating a module - not a theme - the difference being that a module provides additional functionality - for example the newsletter component.
Cheers

@Maze - the best place to start is to look at some of the existing modules in app/code/core

Yes I want to develop a userspecific Component for my Customer.
I’ll try it by looking at existing ones, but without information about XML Files and Module Structure its hard to implement a Component the right way and using the existing Design Patterns.

Thanks for your answers.

I dunno if he had the answer he was looking for but I need to know something along those lines too.

Is it possible not to change the core code for adding functionalities to magento ?
