All you need to do is explained here!

To install these packages watch this tutorial.

Where can you get support and help?

Since JCB has become a community project VDM.io is no longer solely responsible for support.

We have started a JCB forum where you can post questions, about how things work, or if you need some kind of help in relation to your development of your components.

^^ Then if you run into any issues, related to the JCB code, like bugs, start by searching the (open & closed) issues over on Github, and if the issue has not been mentioned before, then only open a new issue, following the community guidelines.

WHY GIVE IT AWAY LIKE THIS?

> We are Open Source Enthusiast
> Who Support the Joomla Community

Our idea was to almost let this tool serve as a cheat sheet to how things can be done... and with the help of other developers end up formulating the way how things not only can, but must be done to insure secure, stable, scalable and maintainable code is produced.

100
Support

Great support from developer and community

100

Vast documentation with lots of video tutorials

I used this to: create various components for my clients

One of a kind!

Functionality

Covers all the aspects of the Component development.
If one knows how to use the APIs can make miracles in a fraction of the time needed.

100
Ease of use

Given the intrinsic complication developing Joomla! Components, this is the Heaven!

100
Support

One of the best supported extensions.

100
Documentation

Very complete documentation if compared with the Joomla!'s API poor one. The video tutorials cover almost every aspect.

I used this to: There is no reason -for every Components developer- to not use this excellent tool. Is a must!
100
Functionality

It handles EVERYTHING (anything it doesn't can be added by 'reading' your manual code changes and incorporating those into your component)

90
Ease of use

You have GOT to have good coding skills, but once you start using it the system is VERY easy to use (for coders). This is NOT 'drag and drop

90
Support

There isn't any 'officially' but the 'unofficial' support is GREAT! (Better than some that I've paid $$$ for)

90
Documentation

Only video tutorials which are great for learning, not great for quick 'reminders'. The videos are best Joomla coding tutorials I have seen

I used this to: Building custom components for my clients - various types
95
Functionality

Lots of functionality, you build anything you can do from scratch once you learn how to use this tool.

51
Ease of use

The learning curve is steep. You must have a good idea of how to build extensions from scratch without any tool.

100
Support

The support is great, The author responds quickly to issues that you post about. The community is there to help as well and always helps

76
Documentation

There are videos instead of written documentation. The videos are indexed so you know what topics are in them and can just straight to that.

I used this to: I use this to build custom components for my clients. I love it because unlike some of the online component builder, where I do manual tweaks after export, I can keep all my code and customization within the tool. I can build components extremely fast now. Just make sure you plan

100
Support

incredible support, on time, in time, all the time!

96
100
Functionality

A lot of functionality, leaving other component creators and services in the dust.

85
Ease of use

For the experienced, much of the component would be simple. For a beginner, or someone learning, it may be confusing.

100
Support

Support is phenomenal. A reported bug was fixed within a few minutes, and a link was provided to an updated version.

100
Documentation

There are no written documentation. Instead there are video tutorials what are very informative. I learned a lot from just the first 9 video

I used this to: Re-building a component that my company forked, plus will be using this for a couple of other components that we are looking at working on.
