TYPO3 Screenshots Tool - Script screenshots for official documentation

Application by
Alexander Nitsche

What is your idea about?
The TYPO3 Screenshots Tool was successfully launched in 2021 and already generates 366 of 850 TYPO3 documentation images automatically by processing scripted photo tours of screenshots.json files. With this budget, the remaining part of the official documentation images will be converted from manually created to automatically generated screenshots.

What is the potential impact of your idea?
Complete the conversion to scripted TYPO3 photo tours to minimize the maintenance effort for the screenshots of the official TYPO3 documentation. Every automatically generated image is a win.

This work is based on the preliminary work on the TYPO3 Screenshots Tool contained in the budget request “TYPO3 Screenshots Tool - Basic Module”. Further advantages of this approach to maintaining screenshots are also listed there.

Who can / should implement your idea?
I will take care myself

Approximate Funds needed
€10,000 - €25,000

Dear Alexander,

thank you for your application. In our call for applications we asked for specific ideas to grow the membership of the TYPO3 Association. Can you please explain how you application can help to grow the number of members?

Hello Ingo,

the growth of the members (and the usage of all other services of the Association and the GmbH) can be achieved by the growth of the users of TYPO3. And the growth of user numbers is mainly achieved by providing good code, good documentation and good marketing. On the other hand, improvements should be cost effective, both in terms of money and time. This feature is both: improving documentation on a broad scale, and inducing cost efficiency for the years to come.
