Підходи ж ці настільки нові, що в самих вбудованих компонентах вони поки що не використуються. Тому дана стаття розділена на дві частини. В першій я розповім про практичні аспекти створення та адаптації розширень для нової версії. Друга — теоретична, в ній я розповім про нову концепцію MVC.

Si vous êtes utilisateurs de Joomla! vous avez très certainement remarqué que la communauté Joomla! est très active et que de nombreux support s'offrent à vous : forum, magazine, plateforme de téléchargement d'extensions, documentations, annuaire...
