MagaloneFlipBook for TYPO3

Create beautiful and interactive flipbooks, magazines or books. Magalone automatically converts your existing PDF document into an interactive and state of the art flipbook. No dependencies on other libraries like jQuery or Bootstrap, Magalone works 100% independent. Support for smartphones, tablets, touchscreens and low bandwidth situations.

With Magalone you can take any PDF document and convert it into an interactive flipbook within seconds. Magalone automatically pre-loads and displays images of your pages for fast reader experience and switches to PDF rendering when your document has finished loading in background.

All you have to do, install the plugin, configure it, it's that easy ;)

Install our extension using Composer

# FREE extension

composer require typo3-ter/magaloneflipbook <VERSION_NUMBER>


Kindly select appropriate version number for MagalonFlipBook extension based on your TYPO3 version

# PRO extension

There are 2 ways to Install PRO extension using composer

# 1 (Strongly RECOMMENDED)

  • Follow FREE extension installation guideline.
  • Check extension manager from Backend, if FREE extension is installed properly and activated
  • If yes, it means it has added all necessary composer entries in appropriate files
  • IMPORTANT Step : remove FREE extension from typo3conf/ext, copy PRO extension zip file and extract at the same place under 'magaloneflipbook' directory
  • IMPORTANT Step : Do clear system cache and reload the Backend once

# 2

  • Open File : vendor > composer > autoload_static.php
  • Search for the below code

    $prefixDirsPsr4 = array (

  • In $prefixDirsPsr4 array, copy below code at the end.

    'Softevolution\\Magaloneflipbook\\' =>
    array (
        0 => __DIR__ . '/../..' . '/<DIR_NAME>/typo3conf/ext/magaloneflipbook/Classes',


    It can be web OR public OR any other. Kindly check your installation and replace the DIR_NAME accordingly


    If you will install another extension in future using composer, it will probably overwrite the composer configuration which you performed above because this step is manual. We strongly recommend to use PRO Extension > #1
