praise your peers -- best coded mod?

Post by aboyd » Tue Jun 24, 2008 11:00 am

I apologize if this has been done before. I didn't see anything similar in the recent posts.

I have (finally) decided to get into phpBB 3 development, and I would like to learn from a master. I want to see a mod that is awesome from a "doing it right, doing it well" perspective. Does it use hooks? Does it use ModX correctly? Does it accomplish its task with a minimum of code? Does it leave a small footprint and play well with other mods (as well as can be expected)?

If you could nominate one mod that should stand as a simple example of how to use the phpBB 3 modding system, what mod would it be? Please try to limit your mod to one that passed the mod database review, but that's not a hard & fast rule.

Thanks for your help, guys. Here's to learning new things!

"Who Was Here" by nickvergessen: Functions in external files, minimal edits, nice module to add to the ACP, automatic installation SQL queries.

Also there are a lot of mods by primehalo that I'm very fond of, both function-wise and programming style-wise.

Sorry, we dont allow this kind of topics here in this forum, this forum is only meant for MOD development questions, and not for polls like this.
