Archives and offline reading
If an older version of TYPO3 is needed - or for offline consulting - archives are available for download.
How it is built?
Because we use JavaDoc style documentation, it is possible to automatically create a complete documentation of the TYPO3 core. At the moment Doxygen is used to generate the API of TYPO3 as it offers many neat features.
- nice layout - easy to browse
- build-in search engine
- graph of classes inheritance
- highly customizable output
Basically, a "nightly-run" script takes care of keeping the API up-to-date automatically.
How to improve?
If you have any concrete ideas / patches that would make the API better, please report onto the Bug Tracker.
