Joomla Extension Builder is a set of scripts written to automate the workflow of developing and testing Joomla extensions. Written in the phing scripting language (http://www.phing.info), it consists of two parts:
“update_repo” which updates a repository from a working Joomla! installation or test server with the files that make up the chosen extension.
“build_extension” that takes the repository files and creates an installable Joomla! extension package from them.
