I've written a rendererer library (on basis of JDocumentHTML) for Joomla 3, needed for a component of mine. It has to be put in a subfolder of /libraries/joomla/document for now. Now I'd like to pack it and make it installable via the package installer of joomla. I've found no tutorial and no book so far emphasizing the way to do it, except an old post explaining a little bit how to make ONE library (and not a rendering one) able to be installed at the root of the library folder in Joomla 1.6.
Does anybody know how to do that?
More informations and reformulation:
I got this PDF rendering class, which is extending JDocument, stuffed in a custom library. Ideally, I not only want to be able to distribute a .zip of this library in order to make it installable via the file manager. That I have already done. I would like to be able to actually render something using it.
Extending the core Joomla rendering functions is a really easy thing to do if you copy your custom renderer to the right place via ftp (to /libraries/joomla/document/ to be specific), but I don't have a clue how to do it via a custom library installed through the extension mananger, in order not to mess around in the vendor directories.
So for now, I have:
- packed my rendering library.
- installed it. that works. Now, how could I actually use it?
