Allow new submodul in extension_builder itself
The extension_builder offers 1 method to create extensions, but this is not the only possible one. There exist several methods how you can create domain-objects and the logical relations i.e. by analyzing a database with special parsers, by xml (unmarshal) or just an alternating graphical tool.
While some basic classes, i.e. for the naming of all classes and variables can be the same, it would be useful, just to include an additional tab in the extension and using the extension_builder classes as far as desired or required.
This surly is not expected from the extension_builder-team but could be done by others if there would be an option to include an additional sub-modul, i.e. by hook.

I'm not sure if providing a hook for a submodule would be the best way to do that.
Are you aware that you can extend any class of the ExtensionBuilder? For example you can extend the FileGenerator to add methods to create additional files.
Or extend the repository to import configuration from other sources than ExtensionBuilder.json found in the existing extensions.

Yes, I realized I could change the TypoScript-Setup of the extension too.
I haven't had a deeper look at it yet and haven't a recipe but in general we could leave the topic open perhaps, just to collect a bit, but I don't mind too if you want to close it.

- Status changed from Needs Feedback to Closed
- Priority changed from Could have to Won't have this time
Since we already have a far too long list of possible additional features I would prefer to close this. Of course if there is a simple generic implementation for this, a patch is welcome...
