Extending Platform UI with new navigation


This tutorial aims at providing a step-by-step guide on how to extend the JavaScript application provided by the PlatformUI bundle

In this tutorial, we will create a new part of the application allowing you to browse your content by Content Type instead of using the tree structure. To fully benefit from this document, you need to:

  • be comfortable with eZ Platform's content model (Content, Location, Content Type, etc.)
  • have basic to intermediate level in HTML5/CSS/JavaScript
  • have a basic knowledge of Symfony's concepts (Bundle, Controller and routing)
  • have read the PlatformUI technical introduction

This tutorial is divided into 8 steps. The complete code base is available on GitHub in the ExtendingPlatformUIConferenceBundle repository which also provides a tag for each step. The expected end result can be seen in this screencast.
