MetaModels manual

MetaModels should allow non-programmers to store their data structures in Contao and to prepare to output them in an appealing layout. This includes the definition of an output template as well as a module to search and filter data.

To get started with MetaModels please see our MetaModels manual.

Our manual also provides you with some tips and tricks on how to use MetaModels effectively. It also guides you through the installation, gives an overview over the different components and also a first example to get started. We also have the topics "Cook book" with tipps and tricks, a list of different extensions and a MetaModels API documentation.

You can support our manual with text contributions or donations.
