Great plugin

The plugin is great for Joomla 2.5. there are some things that can be enhanced but for the most part it does a go job a getting you started.
It would be great if we could contribute and make it better.
having source code on git would be a good start,,, ii would be glad to spend the time to make it 3.x compatible.
Just a thought..........

Hello World page not working

I created a new project with the JoomlaModule plugin. It automatically generated the whole structure for a Hello World component with database access, which I thought was very neat. I created a package without modifying the generated sample code, and I installed it on my Joomla environment. However, there are a few things that are not working for me, and I was wondering if it had to do with my environment, or if it was a bug.

1) If I browse http://localhost/joomla/index.php?option=com_helloworld, I get a 500 error. I traced the code, and errors are generated in getItem() in models/helloworld.php. For some reason $id remains null at line 66, and I think this is what causes the error.

2) In the administrative interface, I see string tags like COM_HELLOWORLD_SUBMENU_CATEGORIES instead of the real strings. My computer is currently using the en-US locale.

3) When I started experimenting with this plugin, my machine's locale was fr-CA, and the plugin would not work properly. It would generate only part of the helloworld.xml file. It would stop as soon as it would encounter a letter with an accent, for instance after "ao" while outputting the month (août = Auhust in French).
