I have created a couple of plugins for Joomla 3.2 and have recently started on a component to manage apartment rentals. I was wondering if there is a framework out there that had the basic file/folder structure already created with the files necessary to get a component going quickly.
I don't want to have to recreate the wheel every time I start, and the files and classes necessary to get a component going have a basic necessary structure. Is there one already out there?
If there is not, which stock Joomla component would be a good example to work from?
EDIT: Upon seeing the answers, I think maybe "framework" was a bad choice of terms. I am not looking for anything that has a codebase of it's own. I was lokking for something that has the file/folder structure that is common to all Joomla components and required to run, such as the controller, the views folder, the models folder, etc.
What I am looking for should have no dependencies that are not already a part of the Joomla core code.
I found one for joomla 1.5 that had all the necessary files and all you had to do was rename the classes and files to match the name of your component and install and you would have a basic admin view, a front end menu view, , etc... I am hoping someone out there created one for
