The builder is the Cook Self Service drag'n'drop application, for building your components.
Projects are decomposed in 3 stages. The builder is so splitted in 3 main parts :
Projects (Components) / Tables (Controllers & Views) / Pages (Layouts)
This represents your whole component. From there you can generate and download.
Tables / Views / Triad :
Each project contains its own tables. They represent the SQL data structure.
Pages / Layouts :
A layout represent the component template in Joomla.
Each tab is child of the upper selected tab. It mean every time you change tab, all bottom contents (bellow the tab) will change.
