[Vtigercrm-developers] Write addons / modules

Hi Prasad,

I made 2 modules for Vtiger. We have 4 installations of Vtiger running for
differents activities (differents companies).

I would have some suggestions on how to implement this plugin system in

We also use Joomla a lot and I think they have a very good plugin system and
that it would be a good model we can follow.

We are actually thinking on releasing the modules we have made to the
community, and we are planning the developpement of other open source
modules. But we dont want anymore to have to modify Vtiger every time a new
version is out.

So we were thinking on working in a plugin system first. But we have to be
sure that this system would be integrated in futures versions of Vtiger.

We think such a plugin system would be a major improvement for Vtiger. It is
a real need. But if the core developpers don't have the time to work on it,
maybe the community could help.

I'm sure a lot of others developpers on this list have the same problem.
They want to switch to the latest version of Vtiger but they are thinking
about all the changes they will have to make again to the core files.  (If
you are a dev reading this thread and you feel concerned please react and
tell us what you think).
