Getting Started

Just follow these simple steps to get started with the styleguide:

  1. Install Fluid Styleguide

    via composer:

     composer require sitegeist/fluid-styleguide

    or download the extension from TER:

    TER: fluid_styleguide

  2. Test Fluid Styleguide with demo components

    Just open the page /fluid-styleguide/ in your TYPO3 installation:


To add your own components to the styleguide, just follow these additional steps:

  1. Configure Fluid Components

    Make sure to define the component namespace in your ext_localconf.php:

    $GLOBALS['TYPO3_CONF_VARS']['EXTCONF']['fluid_components']['namespaces']['VENDOR\\MyExtension\\Components'] =
        \TYPO3\CMS\Core\Utility\ExtensionManagementUtility::extPath('my_extension', 'Resources/Private/Components');

    Use your own vendor name for VENDOR, extension name for MyExtension, and extension key for my_extension.

  2. Configure your frontend assets

    Create a styleguide configuration file in your extension or sitepackage.


                        - 'EXT:my_extension/Resources/Public/Css/Main.min.css'
                        - 'EXT:my_extension/Resources/Public/Javascript/Main.min.js'

    Use your own vendor name for VENDOR, extension name for MyExtension, and extension key for my_extension. Adjust the paths to the assets according to your directory structure.

  3. Start building your own components using Fluid Components and fixture files
