We are pleased to announce that both our Escher and Carta plugins now have a home at the plugin directory.

The Escher plugin allows you to download plugins from within Omeka.

The Carta plugin allows you to add Leafletjs maps to your exhibits.

Both will continue to be available via GitHub for those who wish to fork, develop, etc…..

Thanks to Patrick Murray-John for assisting us in getting the plugins situated.

Having a central home in the Omeka plugin directory will allow us to more easily maintain and update the plugin as well as provide users with one location for download.

Escher: Omeka Plugin for Plugins

We are pleased to announce our new Omeka Plugin, “Escher”.

“Escher” is a convenience plugin that allows you to download and install plugins from the Omeka plugin directory from within your admin panel (no more FTP or WGET needed).

Each time you click the “Escher” menu link it checks the current plugins from the Omeka plugin directory so you will always get the latest available plugin.

The plugin can be downloaded via our Download Portal or via GitHub.

We hope the plugin is useful to the Omeka community and welcome any feedback at
