The PHP-Nuke Tools module is one of the
most helpful modules. Whether you are developing for PHP-Nuke or want to write a module or block really quickly, or even if you just want to learn how modules, blocks
and the rest works in PHP-Nuke, you will appreciate its help.. It offers features such as:
and many others. It comes with an extra block containing links to all functions (Figure 8-28). See it in action at disipal.net.
Especially recommended for beginners (but not only)!
You are a beginner in PHP(-Nuke), have just started your very first module or block, but you get errors and don't understand why? Give it a try with the PHP-Nuke
Tools Module or Block Creator! It will help you see what you were missing and will also give you a feeling of how code looks before and after it is "nuked".
For a much more ambitious project on automatic building of PHP-Nuke blocks and modules (towards a web-based integrated programming environment, IDE, for PHP-Nuke)
ckeck Raven's Block Builder. It is currently under development, but very promising.
