SilverStripe supported module skeleton
A useful skeleton to more easily create modules that conform to the Module Standard.
This readme contains descriptions of the parts of this module base you should customise to meet you own module needs. For example, the module name in the H1 above should be you own module name, and the description text you are reading now is where you should provide a good short explanation of what your module does.
Where possible we have included default text that can be included as is into your module and indicated in other places where you need to customise it
Below is a template of the sections of your readme.md you should ideally include to met the Module Standard and help others make use of your modules.
Steps to prepare this module for your own use:
- Add your name/organisation to
- Update this readme with information about your module. Ensure sections that aren't relevant are deleted and placeholders are edited where relevant
- Review the README files in the various provided directories. You should replace these with
.gitkeepor delete the directories
composer.jsonwith your requirements and package name
- Update (or remove)
package.jsonwith your requirements and package name. Run
yarn.lock) to ensure dependencies resolve correctly
- Clear the git history by running
rm -rf .git && git init
- Add and push to a new remote!
- SilverStripe ^4.0
- Yarn, NodeJS (6.x) and npm (for building frontend assets)
- Other module
- Other server requirement
Add some installation instructions here, having a 1 line composer copy and paste is useful. Here is a composer command to create a new module project. Ensure you read the 'publishing a module' guide and update your module's composer.json to designate your code as a SilverStripe module.
composer require silverstripe-module/skeleton 4.x-dev
Note: When you have completed your module, submit it to Packagist or add it as a VCS repository to your project's composer.json, pointing to the private repository URL.
We have included a 3-clause BSD license you can use as a default. We advocate for the BSD license as it is one of the most permissive and open licenses.
Add links into your docs/ folder here unless your module only requires minimal documentation in that case, add here and remove the docs folder. You might use this as a quick table of content if you mhave multiple documentation pages.
Example configuration (optional)
If your module makes use of the config API in SilverStripe it's a good idea to provide an example config here that will get the module working out of the box and expose the user to the possible configuration options.
Provide a yaml code example where possible.
Page: config_option: true another_config: - item1 - item2
