Packt Publishing asked me to review their latest book about TYPO3 Templates by Jeremy Greenawalt.
This book covers everything you should know about TYPO3 Template Engine TemplaVoila. You’ll learn everything from install of the extension to mapping a template from scratch. This method more easy than the classic marker method or the makeautotemplate extension.
The book also has a whole chapter about different kinds of menus TYPO3 brings with it and shows how to use them with TemplaVoila. Another interesting chapter is about customization of the backend for backend users and groups.
Last but not least they even cover BusyNoggin’s TemplaVoila Framework in a whole chapter. This is quite interesting and you should definitely read it.
In my opinion this book gives a good overview about TemplaVoila template building and even gives some outlook to the Framework. I think this book is good for beginners and intermediate users who would like to learn using from scratch or learn some more advanced techniques. Designers should be familiar with HTML/CSS. Experts may not find anything new.
