Friendica\Module

The Module namespace contains the different modules of Friendica. Each module is loaded through the App.

There are mainly two types of modules:

  • frontend modules to interact with users
  • backend modules to interact with machine requests

Frontend modules

This type of modules mainly needs a template, which are generally located at view/templates/.

A frontend module should extend the BaseModule, especially the content() method.

Backend modules

A frontend module should extend the BaseModule, especially the rawContent() method.

Routing

Use the given routes as a pattern for further routes.

The routing library and further documentation can be found here.
