Component Architect is our free Joomla! extension for the generation of Joomla! components from pre-defined code templates. After completing details of your component/extensions, the objects/tables and the fields you require, the supplied code templates can be used to auto-generate your fully working Joomla! component with full administrator and site functionality. A zip file for your component can be created, as part of the auto-generation, and used to immediately install your new Joomla! component.
The free version of Component Architect comes complete with standard code templates for Joomla! 2.5 and Joomla! 3.2 (Joomla! 3.3 code template coming soon) components. The code in the standard code templates is derived from the core Joomla! CMS components distributed with Joomla and are compliant with Joomla! MVC structures and coding standards. (Note: the standard code templates are not coded to allow backward compatibility with earlier versions of Joomla!).
