TYPO3 - Better API

Have you ever wondered why everything in TYPO3 seems so hard to do? Why must you register your plugin in five different files? Why you have to work with TypoScript, Yaml, and XML, if you have the power of PHP and OOP at your disposal?

Well, ask no longer because this package aims to lessen the load on a developer by creating a streamlined, extendable API you can use to configure your TYPO3 installation and extensions. It also provides a variety of extended core functionality ready for you to use and says a final goodbye to defining your TCA using Arrays.


  • TYPO3 v10
  • Installation using Composer


Install this package using Composer:

composer require labor-digital/typo3-better-api

Example extension

To take a look a how to use the extension, you can take a look at the example extension.


After a complete rewrite of the extension for TYPO3 v10 the old documentation has to be rewritten as well. I'm currently working on that.
