  • IntelliJ IDEA works best when developing the plugin (Community Edition should be sufficient), but in theory, every Java IDE or even your text-editor should work

QuickStart (*nix, please adjust to your platform)

  • git clone
  • cd idea-php-typo3-plugin
  • start the IDE:
    • TYPO3 CMS Plugin: ./gradlew :typo3-cms:runIde - gradlew.bat runIde for Windows
    • TYPO3 Fluid Plugin ./gradlew :lang-fluid:runIde - gradlew.bat runIde for Windows
    • TypoScript Plugin ./gradlew :lang-typoscript:runIde - gradlew.bat runIde for Windows
    • CTRL + C to terminate the execution
  • to begin development with IntelliJ, please import the build.gradle file as new project from existing sources
  • from IntelliJ run the Gradle task runIde (in debug mode), set break-points, profit!
  • run tests:
    • ./gradlew check
  • ideally: send your pull request from a feature branch


Thank you to Daniel Espendiller and Adrien Brault for providing their Symfony2 Plugin in the first place. It is a great inspiration for possible solutions and parts of the code.
