Writing your own Prestashop Module – Part 5

In this part of our basic module writing tutorial series we'll look at the final steps to transform our Tutorialthird module class into a base template that we can use to kick start the writing of new modules. Rather than republish the same old code again we'll only discuss the changes, but I've added a download link at the end of this part so you can grab the final code and use it as the basis for your own projects. We're going to call this module "Skeleton" - a name that we'll replace with our own when it comes to producing new modules based on it.

Storing Module Configuration - In the third part of this series we'll look at how we can store configuration data for our modules in the Prestashop database, and how we can allow users to interact with this data to control the module's behaviour. We will also briefly touch on how we can generate output from our module to provide visual feedback of the configuration changes.

So you want to write a module? - There has always been a little bit of Voodoo associated Prestashop modules. This has been mainly down to a lack of documentation available, but never fear -- this series of tutorials aim to introduce module writing to the PHP programming masses.
