Revision as of 17:46, 30 July 2020

A list of the third party plugins within Mahara.

A helpful way to update this list is to go:

 find ./htdocs -type f -iname "README.Mahara" -exec grep 'Version' -B1 {} \; -print

on the current codebase.

Note: another thing to keep in sync is the country names we use for 'Country' dropdowns. To check what the current state of play is

 perl -MLocale::Country -le 'print join("\n", sort map { country2code($_) . " => " . country2code($_, LOCALE_CODE_ALPHA_3) . ", // " . $_ } all_country_names())'

and check the results against htdocs/lib/country.php and htdocs/lang/en.utf8/mahara.php files For any confusion you can also check against https://www.iso.org

Indicating what version they are on in Mahara and what they currently are on at time of publishing 09 Jan 2019:

Current versions marked in Red indicate the plugin needs updating/upgrading.
