A couple thing about Jomres

8 months 5 days ago #47335 by Yaritza Ramírez
Hi Vince and Rodrigo; I have a couple Q about Jomres.
I was reading on the web, and saw and article with the "Best" Joomla frameworks for template developments.
Of course there was T3 Framework, but also Gantry, Helix, Astroid, among others, so, what make you decide to use T3? where can I find good documentation to learn and start developing with T3 Framework?
Another comparison appear with Google Map and Open Street Map. I know Google Map is the best one, but do you even consider to use OSM?

Thanks for any explanation. It's just me being curious :-)

Hi Yaritza,

I don't recall the reason we decided on T3, it was some years ago now but I think at the time it was the best free framework available. Documentation is here

Jomres only supports Gmaps right now, however Rodrigo's Valentina template package supports OSM. Have a look at his plugins at

Developed and maintained by Vince Wooll and Aladar Barthi, Jomres was initially conceived in early 2005 as a Mambo based solution to a client’s hotel management needs. While it wasn't originally expected to be an online booking system it quickly morphed into one as users requested more and more features.

As the number of feature requests grew Vince knew that he would need to dedicate more time to the project and in July 2005 Jomres was formally released as a commercial project. Since then, Jomres has become one of Mambo’s, and now Joomla’s, longest running projects. It has survived various versions of Mambo, then Joomla 1.0, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, 2.5 and 3.

Aladar joined the project in 2010 after using Jomres for his own projects. He was active on the forum, helping other members of the community and eventually Vince invited him to join the team. He has since become an integral part of the project and has contributed significantly to it's development over the years.

Whilst not formally part of the Jomres project, Rodrigo Rocco and the team have become firm friends. Rod is a freelancer who specialises in doing custom work for Jomres users and developing custom plugins for the system that take advantage of it's modular design. He has built many useful extensions including his fabulous new Valentina Template Package.
