Hi,

I'm thinking of renewing subscription for j-cook. What I didn't like about it in prev. versions was an overhaul framework that didn't actually meet all Joomla standards ( i like when code is clean and understandable - and who doesn't ? ). Don't get me wrong, this project is a brilliant idea overall. Still i'm also looking at other solutions (there is one particular that does it pretty well). I like j-cook project patterns and the way it >works< but cannot determine if there was any improvement in terms of code cleanliness.

Could you send me over an example of j-cook rendered component? It would give me some important feedback.

Regards,
Piotr

Can you please try V2.0 ?
Before 2.0, it was fitting the Joomla 1.5 standard (before PlatForm 11.1)
If you do not subscribe for this new 2.0, I will not send you any example.
The generated source is free of use, at least once you've paid it.

It is possible that Cook is overriding a lot of functionnalities, but it is against our volounty.
Joomla is not always written well, so we don't have choice.
Following the strict standards is not always easy, but we try so.

Can you please describe precisly wich part of the source are you not satisfied with ?
I mean, please provide some details instead of discriminating it without proposing an alternative.

When you speak about another solution without specificating wich one, It gives me the impression that you are affiliated to this alternative you do not want to tell the name.

Here, we are free to talk about all existing products, even concurrents.
So, my impression is that you attempt to distract the users here.

Not saying what is wrong, means that you do not want it to be improved.
I can be wrong, but I feel really offended.

Hi there,

Really, nothing out there comes close to cook. I tried many components/services including the following and found cook to be the most fully-featured, growing and coherent/intuitive interface to use/customise. Furthermore, the quick responses to tickets/posts in forums by admin + a wealth of info in the growing community, I think you you've be hard-pressed to (nor want to) find any real alternative...

Also tried...
  1. Marco's Component Creator - only available for J1.5 so pretty obsolete
  2. Easy Creator - Very counter-intuitive
  3. Not Web Design's Joomla Component Creator - Very expensive (about 3-4 times the price of Cook) with less than a quarter of the features and no community/forum

COOK ROCKS.

Cook it! Taste it! LOVE IT!

Hi again,

Forgive me, but first you need to chill ;) I just asked questions about what's new in j-cook.pro. Haven't been here for a while and it's now hard to see what changes are there when it comes to code quality - probably great changes with the version 2.0!

From what you have just written some drawbacks might have their source in the fact that j-cook.pro was for both J 1.5 and J.16+ platform. Didn't know that it changed !!!! (that's why all the questions)
When you speak about another solution without specificating wich one, It gives me the impression that you are affiliated to this alternative you do not want to tell the name.

I didn't mean to make this impression! I was thinking about -> Not Web Design's Joomla Component Creator. I didn't want to name it, because it's sometimes simply not welcome.

I haven't had opportunity to compare it with the current j-cook version. A year ago it was possible to create some sample code with jcook - now it's not. ( again - that's why I'm asking )
Here, we are free to talk about all existing products, even concurrents.
So, my impression is that you attempt to distract the users here.

No idea why. I have a feeling any critisim might cause such impression.

Anyways, I didn't mean to offend (!?) you and if I did, I'm sorry for doing so.

@ audibleid

THANK YOU - that's what I was looking for. B)

EDIT:

PS. I'll give it a try and see what's what by myself.

I want to apologize for my emotional reaction.
Then I realized it was not a good answer.

Thank you audibleid as well for your inconditional support. Really appreciated.

@admin,

No probs! Emotional reactions are to be expected from humans! I thought cook must have been developed by a machine :) Now I'm really :sick: ... Too clever for one guy surely???!

Hi,

Ok, I looked into it. And I must say it's pretty neat ! :]

Keep up the good work.

Btw. I'll have some requests but I'll post them in adequate thread.

Regards,
Piotr

BTW I've just noticed -1 Karma rating below my avatar :) Any way to check where does it come from ?
