I often find myself needing to look up the properties of a particular TypoScript object. Of course, I search through TSref and when I need the
details of the object it is great. But if all I need is to be
reminded of the properties available and their spelling then searching
and scrolling through TSref is a bit of a pain and slows me down.
I posted this on the TYPO3 English list the other day. I explained that I was thinking of making an outline of TypoScript objects and their properties to use as a cheat sheet but wondered if anyone had anything like that already.
Among the responses was from Martin Holtz who directed me to a solution he has put together using OpenSearch within the TSref section of the TYPO3 Wiki. It is very nice and just what I wanted.
After adding it to your browser, simply select "TYPO3 Search" just like you would Google or Yahoo. Next enter the object or function you are looking for. For instance, type in "stdWrap" and you will get the page for that function with a list of all its properties. Search for "image" and you get the same for the IMAGE object. Much faster the searching and scrolling through a PDF of TSref.
You can find out more about this and how to install it at wiki.typo3.org/index.php/OpenSearch.
Thanks, Martin for sharing.
