Mahara has a highly pluggable architecture. Currently, you can write plugins for authentication, content types (artefacts), blocks, notifications, search and more. In addition, you can theme Mahara, and also translate the UI to different languages.

Admin stuff

We used to maintain a "mahara-contrib" project in Gitorious and Launchpad, where we invited plugin developers to keep their projects. This fell into disuse circa 2010, and now we encourage plugin developers to host their project wherever they wish, and we'll link to it on our Plugins page.
