TYPO3 Core Dokumentation

Mit dem neuen Release haben sich auch wieder ein paar Dinge geändert bzw. kamen neue Dinge hinzu. Folglich wurden auch einige der Core-Dokumentationen aktualisiert. Nachdem die PDFs davon nicht mehr ganz so schnell und einfach aus dem Repository runtergeladen werden können, habe ich mal eine Liste der Dokumente samt PDF-Verlinkung zusammengestellt.

Kurz noch die Erklärung von typo3.org, wie die Dokumente allgemein einzusortieren sind:

These documents are related to the core of TYPO3 and address the built in functionality of TYPO3. They are designed to provide you with in-depth information. Each Core Manual addresses a particular process or function and how it is implemented within the TYPO3 source code. These may include information on available APIs, specific configuration options, etc. The Core Manuals are written as reference manuals. You should rely on the Table of Contents to identify what particular section will best address the task at hand.

Inside TYPO3


For most people TYPO3 is equivalent to a CMS providing a backend for management of the content and a frontend engine for website display. However TYPO3s core is natively designed to be a general purpose framework for management of database content. The core of TYPO3 delivers a set of principles for storage of this content, user access management, editing of the content, uploading and managing files etc. Many of these principles are expressed as an API (Application Programmers Interface) for use in the extensions which ultimately adds most of the real functionality.

So the core is the skeleton and extensions are the muscles, fibers and skin making a full bodied CMS. In this document I cut to the bone and provide a detailed look at the core of TYPO3 including the API available to the outside. This is supposed to be the final technical reference apart from source code itself which is – of course – the ultimate documentation.


TCA Reference


This document aims to describe the global array called $TCA. This array describes the database tables that TYPO3 can operate on. It is a very central element of the TYPO3 architecture.



TypoScript can be used to create templates for the TYPO3 frontend, but also to configure the TYPO3 backend. In this case, it is called „TSconfig“. TSconfig is divided into configuration for pages („Page TSconfig“) and configuration for users and groups („User TSconfig“). Each variant is further detailed in its own chapter. TSconfig offers vast possibilities of customizing the TYPO3 backend.



This document is a complete reference to all objects and properties of TypoScript as used in TYPO3 templates (and not in TSconfig).

TypoScript Syntax and In-depth


This document describes the syntax of TypoScript. It also covers the nature of TypoScript and what the differences are between the various contexts in which it can be used (i.e. templates and TSconfig).
