Translation

The app synchronizes the translation from your Moodle site. Upload to your lang/en folder (or to your moodledata/lang/mylang folder) a valid mobile.php file containing your translation, an example can be found here

Style customization

The app can also retrieve your custom styles from your Moodle site. Since the app is a HTML5 app, you can apply safely any CSS, CSS2 and CSS3 style.

In your Moodle installation go to Plugins / Web services / Mobile and enter in the mobilecssurl field a valid URL pointing to a CSS file containing your custom styles. The original styles to override can be found here: https://github.com/moodlehq/moodlemobile/tree/master/css

The CSS should be placed inside your Moodle installation (in your custom theme or inside a local plugin)

Moodle sites must be enabled for the app to access them

The administrator of your Moodle site (which must be version 2.4 or later) must enable mobile access as follows:

  • In Site administration > Plugins > Web services > Mobile tick the 'Enable web services for mobile devices' checkbox, then click the button to save changes.

Installing the mobile app

Apps are available in Google Play and also Apple Store. You can install the app directly from your Mobile device, search for "Moodle Mobile" the author/owner must be "Moodle Pty Ltd"

Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.moodle.moodlemobile

iOS: https://itunes.apple.com/es/app/moodle-mobile/id633359593

You can find the app build for other Mobile OS (not supported officially) here:

https://build.phonegap.com/apps/314601/builds

Testing the app on a demo site

In the login screen, type "teacher" or "student" in the Username field and click the Add button. You will be logged automatically to a Moodle demo site for testing the app.

Cache

If you connect to your Moodle site and update/create/delete anything, and then go to your mobile app, the content will not be displayed. You will have to wait a couple of minutes. The cache time for the app is currently 5 minutes.

There are developer options for purging the cache at any time (Settings -> Development)

How to report a bug

  1. Log in to the Moodle Mobile tracker https://tracker.moodle.org/browse/MOBILE (you'll need to create a tracker account if you've not done so previously)
  2. Check whether the issue has already been reported by searching all the issues
  3. If not, report the bug by clicking the 'Create Issue' link at the top right of the page, selecting 'Moodle Mobile' as the project
  4. Add a detailed description then click the Create button
  5. Attach the following files to the issue by selecting 'Attach Files' in the 'More actions' dropdown menu:
    • 'Device information' - this can be found in the app (Settings -> Development -> Device info, you can send yourself this information by email using the e-mail button at the bottom)
    • App Log (Settings -> Development -> Show Log, again you can send yourself this information by email)

Report a bug by email

You can send us the same report by email using Settings -> Report a bug. As the report is sent by email to mobile@moodle.com, the report will take more time to be filed in the tracker.
