You know what, you can download TYPO3 extensions at many places like official extensions.typo3.org, github.com, gitlab.com, Composer packagist.org, etc. What I found is, at all platforms, TYPO3 people markdown “likes, stars, forks” etc. That’s why I wrote down this blog to highlight the best TYPO3 extensions for all the platforms.

Without TYPO3 extensions, TYPO3 would have never been that flexible or scalable to succeed for so many different use cases. Interview with Benni: TYPO3 for Everyone!
