I'm not sure if this is what he is looking for.
This class is only a example class. Additionaly it uses metadata in first

Actually it is documented. I forgot to connect manual page to the build.
Thanks for a reminder, it is connected now.

I'm starting tests tomorrow. There are few thing to implement still.
