* Plugin Writing So Easy Even A Themer Could Do It :)

The e107 Helper Project plugin is a collection of PHP include files and JavaScript aimed at making plugin writing easier.

The e107 Helper Project takes the Yourplugin idea a step further and provides the plugin writer with ready written routines that can be called to add new, standard functionality to the plugin. An example of this is adding comments to a plugin, normally this would take around 70 lines of code and is pretty much the same for any plugin apart from a few key values. With the e107 Helper Project comments can be added to a plugin with one line of code - just call the approriate routine, passing in three parameters and your done.

In additon, there are various ad hoc helper methods available. Some are aimed at ensuring that a plugin can run correctly whether a site is running e107 v0.617 or v0.7. In e107 v0.7 some function and method names were changed and some internals have been updated which cause existing plugins to fail under this version. The helper methods used here will determine the version of e107 and call the correct e107 function on behalf of the plugin. Others simply provide a more convenient interface to e107 functionality such as text parsing.
