Plugin skeleton generator

The project’s aim was to make developing plugins a much easier task. A new tool was designed and implemented by the GSOC student. Based on coding techniques used by existing plugins, on the guides and specifications found in the Moodle developer documentation, as well as on the user’s input, the new tool generates skeleton code that can be used to build new Moodle plugins.

Several key search areas like users or messages have been successfully integrated into Moodle's core expanding global search subsystem's functionality to cover all major search use cases. You can see the full list of issues in this epic.
