It has some bugs that is expected because its pretty complex.

Only negative is that I can't register on the support forum, I get no activation mail and I tried with to different email accounts.

So far, after downloading, installing and reviewing the logic behind it, it looks pretty solid. The code appears to be well organized and clean, and the hopes that this tool may help speed up extension development is high.

Really looking forward to rolling my sleeves up on this one.

It's a realy usefull extension.

it's not easy to use, so you need two days of rain.

The reason for the four stars is the not existing documentation in english and the bad translation which is not complete in english.

English is the language on the whole IT business and italian documentations are not realy usefull if you have a global product like joomla.
This is not important for a image slider module or other simple extensions. But for this extension is the documentation extremly important.

you're right, when I have finished version 1, I will focus on the translation of the manual (which I still have to finish writing).

This is a nice extension. But the text is not in English.
Owner's reply

the component is in Italian and English. Maybe there were problems in the installation, but you can find the traslation files when you download the component.

Although I am still a beginner in joomla, watching the tytorials could easily make a component.
I look forward to the next, improved version.
Thanks Giulio Pandolfelli
