How to create custom group components, like on buddypress.org
I know this has come up before, but I can’t find the older threads about it. If this “how-to” was already explained once, I’d be happy with just a link.
We are trying to accomplish more or less exactly what buddypress.org is doing with groups already, using it not just for groups but also a plugins directory. The documentation on how to create a custom component is pretty sparse, the Component API page is a blank and the BP Skeleton Component is somewhat outdated, and doesn’t come with a whole lot of additional documentation.
This particular area of development could really benefit from an update. The custom components we’ll be developing for our sites (the primary one being a Groups variety that ties in with GitHub to establish a plugin repository) may very well be published as free plugins, but the barrier to entry is currently very high.
