This package defines dependencies and contains wrapper scripts for easy validations of Fluid Powered TYPO3 project repositories conforming to the coding style and contribution guidelines. The provided ./vendor/bin/make script can be used for local testing and will install itself as a git post-commit hook that executes after commits are made.

The same scripts can be used from a continuous integration context.

To use fluidtypo3-development you must add it as a composer dependency:

composer require --dev fluidtypo3/development:*

Note that this package should only be used in local development!


  • composer (scripts are tailored to be executed from composer projects only).
  • Optional Documentation/Changelog directory if you use the changelog command.

Usage instructions: utility scripts

A few handy shell utilities are included with fluidtypo3-development to help you perform a few of the tasks associated with maintaining and developing official FluidTYPO3 repositories. These utilities are:

Inside this package:

  • ./vendor/bin/changelog which can be used to automatically generate a change log for an up-coming version. The command is used by the release command as well. It takes one mandatory argument, the version number (e.g. 1.2.3) and one additional and optional argument, a "since" date (e.g. 2016/03/10 for March 10th 2016). Executing the command generates a dedicated change log file in Documentation/Changelog/$version.md and updates the CHANGELOG.md file to record the new log file.
  • ./vendor/bin/release which releases an extension (which was staged immediately before that). Checks out the master branch, merges the staging branch into it, runs unit tests, generates a change log, raises the version number and commits a new (signed) tag. If all of this is succesful, the result is pushed to the remote and GitHub hooks deploy the extension to TER.
  • ./vendor/bin/setversion which sets a new version number (and optionally new stability) in the ext_emconf.php file.
