Civix v22.05: How to remove a million lines of extra code

civix is a development tool. It generates code for extensions, providing a baseline for developers and hackers who want to improve and add onto CiviCRM.

civix generates a lot of code. Much of this code is educational; hopefully, some of it is even useful. But some parts of it are redundant or excessive. The excess bits don't matter much with a single extension. However, in practice, they are copied to almost every extension. Individually, these are small bits. Collectively, they add up.

Gift Aid is important for UK charities, and means millions of pounds extra go to the charity sector. Each time an eligible tax payer donates and forgets to tick the Gift Aid box, the charity misses out.

Over the years the GiftAid extension for CiviCRM has evolved and we are now reviewing it to ensure the process is easy for donors to make a declaration and to ensure that administrators can process GiftAid claims easily and with confidence.

IPN Notification URLs are hard; make them easy

The CiviCRM Easy IPN URL extension is pretty simple. It just adds a new link in CiviCRM's Payment Processor listing that displays the proper notification URL, with a single click. This way you don’t have to piece together a URL on your own or instruct clients on how to formulate such a URL themselves.

We live in challenging times, and we should now help each other more then ever - especially when on lockdown.
 
We created a CiviCRM extension to coordinate help for the vulnerable and most affected members of your neighbourhood, community, town or county. It provides two simple public forms, where people can sign up either to request or offer help. These forms then create CiviCRM contacts with the help requests/offers stored in custom fields.

It’s easy for CiviCRM users to get confused about where to find settings in the CiviCRM menu because the links may be nested within other menu items. This can lead them to look at multiple menu items to find the appropriate setting which can be frustrating to new users not familiar with the system. Enter the Quick Search CiviCRM Menu extension. Once the quick search extension is installed, menu items can be found much quicker. CiviCRM permissions are also considered.

In 1992, there was a little known new thing called the world wide web. By 1995, it was a "thing". Now, what exactly do those quotes do to the word "thing"? And what does this have to do with "entities"? Cue my favorite programming joke.

In CiviCRM currently, if a Membership Type has Membership records in CiviCRM there is no way in the CiviCRM administration interface to change the Relationship Types that will be used to inherit this membership. We now have an CiviCRM extension which solves this problem.
