perfect functionality

Ease of use

very easy, in 3 easy steps we have tested our extensions


I have not needed



I used this to: my extensions test

This tool is indispensable for all Joomla! developers. Easy to use but very effective.

The JED checker tool proves as a complete lifesaver for our team. We specifically check all of our extensions with it before uploading our listings in the JED.

It has saved us many times from getting our listings unpublished on JED as well as fixing the unpublished listings too.

It's one of the awesome contribution to the Joomla Family.

It spotted in seconds issues with my extension. Hours of work spared.

Great Extension

Nice and helpful component! This saves my time!

This is exactly what I call a useful Joomla! community extension. It encourages Joomla! users to become developers for the community as well, and to fork, code and contribute to the Joomla! extensions and the core CMS itself.

I must have for any Joomla! developer, especially for "not full-time" developers!

I am looking forward to seeing more tools and checks to help following good coding practises. Keep on the good work guys!

I like to say this is time saver or you can say life saver for a developer.

great tool for devs

This is a wonderful tool. Im so happy i came across it. I submitted an extesion to the JED about a month ago and have been waiting for it to approve.

Its almost at the top of the list and i found out i needed to run it past this tool.

Lucky i did because i was missing ONE file.

All that time i have been waiting would have been started all over again.

And to boot. the file i submitted is something everyone around here has been asking for, for about a year now.
