No need to know any PHP, HTML or CSS, just type some text and click some buttons to download a ready to install tiny module prepared specifically for you.
You won't be asked to install a huge package of component, modules and plugins only to configure a small box on your site. All configurations are made in the genarator, so you will recieve a clean module, which will do only the tasks you wanted it to do.
Working with the generator is easy and it's well documented. The site offers a step-by-step tutorial (building a BMI calculator) and a lot of demo calculators, quizzes and converters:
- Days Converter
- Unit Converter
- Day of the Week Calculator
- Coin Flipping
- How Many Days Until/Since Calculator
- Your Next Birthday Calculator
- IQ test
- Political Quiz
- Price Calculator
- Zodiac Ovulation Calculator
If you prefer, you can download one of the demos right away and modify the module itself to fit your own needs.
The generated module is perfectly structured with separate language, css, view and controller files. It's easy to translate it and customize its appearance.
The service is free and your module will contain no ads. Please, rate it if you like it.
Once the module was installed, it was very easy to assign its position and turn it on. Bam, done! Awesome. I worry that if it needs to be changed in the future it'll be a total pain though... after all, it'll have to be re-generated all over again. Good thing this probably won't happen with my current client, but for somebody else that might be a pain.
I found all sorts of mortgage and car loan calculators but none of them was a Patch on Andrew's loan calculator.
What's more, because I'm hopeless at the kind of calculations involved, Andrew created the calculator for me.
I've been working with websites for more than ten years and I have never come across such good support - even from paid extensions.
If you need a customised calculator it has to be Calculator Generator - and if you're not clever enough to work out the maths yourself it seems Andrew is happy to help.
He earned every penny of the small donation we made.
it does exactly what i wanted it to and ive themed it using the css and the language files to match the design of my website.
With this extension, I managed to do it flawlessly, and the ability to download your creation and incorporate seamlessly into Joomla is brilliant!
Thank you for such a great extension!
Improvements would be more options in the module once it has been loaded: change variables mainly... and a way of copying the formulae rather than having to key them manually in each time.
But aside from that, this is an excellent alternative to the norm (as long as the generator page doesn't disappear!)
