Plugin type: blocktype

These are the items that can be added to individual pages. Currently blocks do not contain export or import functionality. This leads to the question of how does the core program know exactly how to export a block as HTML or LEAP?

  • GUI: portfolio -> pages -> edit pages

Plugin type: artefact

Artefacts are individual items that can be added to a portfolio. This can be files, journal entries, whole journals, resumes, and plans. Individual artefacts do contain import and export functionality.
