Welcome! The Developer Zone is the place to learn about extending xTuple with scripted packages, modifying core source code, and interfacing with third party applications.
If you are interested in development on the web client please visit the wiki on GitHub. If you are more interested in the C++ client, continue reading this page.
The extension method is the right way to change xTuple ERP in the following cases:
What can you do with extensions?
Altering core source code is the right way to change xTuple in the following cases:
What might be candidates for changes to the core?
Or, go straight to instructions for compiling xTuple source code.
|Interfacing with third party applications||We are also developing additional documentaion on the many ways you can integrate xTuple with external applications. Our primary tool for this type of work is the xTuple Connect add-on, which supports a wide variety of import and export mechanisms, and the automation of the handling and transport of the data being exchanged.|

Changing existing core screens
Currently I am interested in modifying the core screen of xTuple to streamline it as an import/export startup.
I've looked over the files and I believe the core screens are hardcoded into the client, so I believe that there might be a error when it is claimed that the extensions are able to

Keep reading. You can write
Regarding import/export, you might want to look at what we're doing with embedding the CSV import tool into the client, and expanding XML import/export capabilities, before taking on anything big in that area. Can you describe what you're looking to do? (Ideally in the New Development forum?)

I want to insert new records or modify existing data directly using sql. Does the API provide this
type of interface for postbooks?
I have been programming in c/c++/vb for 25 years, and am very comfortable at the api level.
eg; As a consultant, I often work onsite. I would like to create a web interface for my
company, which allows me to create invoices in postbooks hosted on my office servers while i'm at
the customer site.

Comment on layout of this page
Minor point - but I feel this web page could be improved for people looking for information by moving the four points (> Core Overview ...... thru > Specifications) to the top of the page or highlighting them in some other way - I had been to this page several times and never realised they were sections in their own right - I glanced at them but never realised where they lead - Now I see them it seems obvious but they are just very easy to miss at first glance.
