Moodle JS framework prototypes research (Invited speaker)

Plugins directory public API

  • by David Mudrák
  • Overview of recent development and the ability to integrate external tools with the plugins directory (such as mdk, moosh or custom shell scripts)
  • Estimated length: 5 minutes

Prechecking against Moodle coding guidelines from your command line

  • by Frédéric Massart
  • The patch precheck job in Moodle continuous integration process - see Automated code review
  • Short demonstration of the possibility to execute the CI precheck job from the command line (without the need to use the 'cime' label in the tracker), especially when using mdk
  • Estimated length: 10 minutes

Development of the quiz fault-tolerant mode

  • by Tim Hunt
  • This allows the students to continue working on their quiz attempt, even if the network is unreliable, by storing everything on the client-side, and using Ajax when possible. I will try to show some more of the details.
  • If the network connection never comes back, you can download the responses as an ecrypted file, which can later be uploaded ot the server.
  • Work in progress code is at Tim's github repo
  • Do we want this in standard Moodle? If so, when, and how do we add it? (It was developed as a plugin while it was an experiment. If it went into standard Moodle it would need to be merged into the main quiz code.)
  • Estimated length: 20 minutes
