The Joomla Component Creator is a component builder lets you effortlessly develop, customize and build ready-to-install components for the Joomla 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3.0 platforms. A component view can hold multiple custom fields and can allow both back and front end editing. All Joomla component field types are supported as well as many custom ones including foreign keys.
Component code generated strictly follows the Joomla MVC structure and formatting guides.
You can develop a fully functioning component in 5 minutes:
1. Name your component
2. Add a table/view
3. Add fields
4. Build your component
5. Install the component in your Joomla Admin
If you have ever developed a Joomla component before then you know that a lot of time is spent on copy pasting views, controllers and models and renaming them. Now you no longer need to do this as the Component Creator will create a fully functioning component for you. Once you have named your component and added tables, views and fields you simply click “build component” and download a ready to install zipped up fully working component with a complete interface to add, edit and delete the data structure you have set up.

The most complete component builder ever made for Joomla
I would totally suggest it to anyone, and a small message to those who didn't vote 5star:
Please try to make a component all the way from the beginning, and then think again - I have.
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Hi, thanks for your review. As far as I can see you are the only reviewer that has ever given our component anything but a 5 star review. I find it a little unfair as the features you state are missing where never advertised.
That said, we have improved tremendously and have actually implemented all the features you where after in our version 3.0.
Please have a look again and please change your review score or delete your review if you find that we now offer what you where after.
The developer has graciously contributed his time to offer a great quick start to the development process, saving everyone else large amounts of their time. He is to be applauded for that effort.
Note: There is a small interaction issue due to a "feature" in Joomla 1.5, combined with PHP and this tool. You will likely experience an issue if your component name contains the string "view". If you name it with anything else, you should have no problems. (This behavior is supposed to be resolved when Joomla 1.6 is released)
Hi, please take a look at our latest version. We are working very hard to deliver nothing but the best developer tool for Joomla and would love to see a perfect score on the JED as well.
We have implemented loads of new features since this review was posted.
The only issue I have with it is that it creates the XML for the date in the wrong format for my country (USA).
Today is March 10th, 2009, but the date gets created like this... 10/03/2009
It would be ideal to be able to select a date format on the setup screen, then we wouldn't have to go into the XML file and change dates manually.
It's really just a tiny minor issue, buit it's the only thing keeping this from being PERFECT!!
Nicely done. :)
