Google Summer of Code 2011 is in the second term. Leonardo Sápiras passed the midterm evaluation and continues his work on the phpPgAdmin plugin infrastructure.

His work is already in an advanced stage, time to take a look and show you, what’s possible.

Note that the scope of the project is to provide a plugin infrastructure. Part of this is a very basic example plugin, but not with any advanced functionality.

The installation is easy, if you want to test it, you can checkout Leonardo’s code from his git repository.

If you want to see the example plugin, you have to activate it in config.inc.php:

The configuration option to enable the plugin infrastructure
The configuration option to enable the plugin infrastructure

The config option is the plugins variable, new at the end of the file: $conf['plugins'] = array('Example');

After enabling this option, you will see a new link “Example Plugin” appearing at several places:

The example plugin in the upper right corner - in the database list
The example plugin in the upper right corner - in the database list

The example plugin in the upper right corner - in the table list
The example plugin in the upper right corner - in the table list

The example plugin in the upper right corner - in the data browse view
The example plugin in the upper right corner - in the data browse view

This links show basic functionality, like some links to itself (showing how to build links using the new link infrastructure). This should give other module developers an idea, how to develop modules. The example plugin always adds the new tab on the most right position.

Conclusion: the infrastructure is available. Now it’s time for you module developers to actually write some useful modules ;-)
