Mahara has a very pluggable architecture, which allows people to add their own artefacts, blocks for views, methods for authentication and more. Mahara is a young project, but a few plugins are beginning to appear. Here is a list of them.

If you have a plugin that you'd like to contribute, we'd love to hear from you! Post on the Developers Forum with some information about it.

Please note: Plugins listed here are NOT subject to the same standards of review that the Mahara core is, and as such, may contain security issues or other problems. It's up to you to verify that the plugin will adequately suit your needs!

Artefact Plugins

Mahara ships with plugins for profile information, a file repository, blogs and a resume builder. In addition, these plugins are available:

  • Europass by Gregor Anželj - implements Europass into Mahara, allows showing Europass data in Views and exporting this data into several forms
  • My Learning by Gregor Anželj - adds questionaires about learning styles and intelligences, with Flash-based visualisations that can be embedded in Views
  • Problems & Conditions by Catalyst for Cambridge University School of Clinical Medicine - adds the ability for students to record case notes about medical conditions, and share them with others. A nice feature is a category browser that makes it easy for users to choose what conditions to associate with a given case note. download
    Note:Not compatible with Mahara 1.3 yet 
  • My Reading by Jong-Dae Park - add comments on the books users read. The plugin was developed by modifying the code of blog artifact plugin developed by Catalyst and utilize web service from Korean online book company. The code need to be modified if users want to use webservice from the online book company in other countries. download
