We are happy to announce a special Website dedicated to XOOPS API Documentation on-line:http://api.xoops.org
XOOPS is built on top of a Core framework, which provides a set of of specification for routines, data structures, object classes, and variables. At the center of the Core is the object model that is based on two XOOPS classes XoopsObject and XoopsPersistableObjectHandler.
We encourage all module developers to use XOOPS API in their modules, as it will streamline their development, and will enable to take advantage of the already provided services and classes. There is no need to reinvent the wheel!
To make it easier for you to learn about the XOOPS Core, we are providing you with several API documents:
1) Current XOOPS 2.5.6
2) Upcoming XOOPS 2.6.0 Alpha 3
(subject to change)
3) Upcoming Common Utilities
For example, to see visually the structure of XOOPS classes like here:
you can view the class hierarchy:
- XOOPS 2.5.6
- XOOPS 2.6.0
If you would like to get a better overview of XOOPS Core framework and the API, you can also review the presentation "OOP Adventures with XOOPS
