Jump to: navigation, search

Third-party plugins give you more tools to work with your genealogy data in Gramps. This page lists plugins written by users and developers to work with the Gramps 4.0 version. These plugins may not be officially part of Gramps. Feature requests and bugs with these plugins should be directed to the contact information below. Plugins for previous versions of Gramps can be found on the 3.2 Addons or 3.3 Addons or 3.4 Addons page.

Installing Addons in Gramps

Gramps 3.3 introduced a new system for downloading and uploading Addons. Now you can have Gramps manage the process of checking and downloading updates.

To configure Gramps for Addons:

  1. Start Gramps
  2. Select Menu Edit -> Preferences...
  3. Go to the General tab
  4. Change "Check for updates" so when you start Gramps, it checks for updated Addons:
    1. Never - never checks for updates when you start Gramps
    2. Once a month - checks for updates when you start Gramps once a month
    3. Once a week - checks for updates when you start Gramps once a week
    4. Once a day - checks for updates when you start Gramps once a day
    5. Always - checks for updates whenever you start Gramps
  5. Change "What to check" so when you check for updates, it checks for:
    1. Updated addons only - does not check for new addons
    2. New addons only - does not check for updated addons
    3. New and updated addons - checks for all new and updated addons
  6. Change "Do not ask about previously notified addons":
    1. Check it so that new/updated addons are only asked about once; afterwards it doesn't show them to you
    2. Uncheck it so that new/updated addons are always shown to you


Addon List

Addons now are listed inside of Gramps through the interface described above.
