jsmallsoftware develops and distributes software under the terms of the GNU General Public License for the Joomla! community. The idea is to develop software that can be easily integrated in a Joomla!-based portal to provide functionality in a simple way, with good emphasis to aesthetics. The two products available, jsmallfib and jsmallist are simple but functional versions of a small file browser and a small list of items. The interesting thing about them is they have been developed as content plugins for Joomla! This means that they can be easily integrated within any Joomla! article created within the CMS. When rendering a normal article, these plugins allow Joomla! to include a file browser or a list respectively.
In both programs permissions for accessing files or item lists are set with the 'command' within the article text. It is possible to set different access levels for unregistered visitors or specific registered user groups, but also for specific registered users individually. All this is done with the command in the article text.
jsmallsoftware will continue to improve its Joomla! extensions (and develop new ones) with its 'keep it simple'-philosophy, to provide functionality when a more complex component is not needed. jsmallsoftware was initially crated by Enrico Sandoli. If you are looking for softwareupdates and support for jsmallist or jsmallfib please visit his new website.
