Based on our first experiences with the "TYPO3 Backend-Add On" we have had the idea to add more comfort to the daily work with TYPO3 and Firefox.

We added some desired moduls and from know on it is called "TYPO3 Workbench".

These are the modules:

  • TYPO3 Backend
    We integrated the TYPO3 Backend function into the new TYPO3 Workbench.
    Now the TYPO3 Backend can check whether there is a "/typo3/index.php" page or not. Due to this the login button will be shown or not.
  • My Projects
    Simply use your bookmarks function to add a folder with you actual projects. The TYPO3 Workbench will add a menu with your projects. By clicking on one of the menu items the login page of the specific project will be opened in another tab.
  • References
    Because of the availability of the two most important references (TSREF and TSConfig) in Docbook.format we added them to the TYPO3 Workbench. You can use the index or the integrated search to find the desired information and help. You can copy the located part and past it into your template.
  • Find extensions
    Just add you search criteria and it will be send to the Extension Repository on TYPO3.org.
  • Search Discussion Forums
    Tired of using google for search your TYPO3 problems? Just use the forum search of the TYPO3 Workbench. You can customize in which forums you want to search. If you find a forum that's missing just send the url to us (use the form below!) and we may add it to the next release.
  • Snippets Database (from Version 0.8.0)
    Ever wanted to have your code snippets right at hand when you need them? With the Snippets Database you can store them locally. If you are part of a company you can also put your database somewhere in your Local Area Network. So you and your collegues can fill the database alltogether. - Inspiring people to share -

So you think something is missing? Just use the form below and send us your idea. We will try to add it to some of the forthcoming releases.

First of all not much.

    inside Firefox 3 (eg. Contextmenu, Toolbarmenu...)
  • Of course I added automatic login to the login funktion
  • On "MyProjects" you are now able to select whether you want to use
    bookmarks or tags.
  • I updated the references to the actual version from typo3.org
  • Searching for extensions on TYPO3.org now opens in a new tab not in a new window

Ver. 0.51

Just a small update.
