Filter: Timeline widget

Type: Filter
Requires: Moodle 1.9 or later
Status: Contributed
Maintainer(s): Nick Freear

A filter to embed an MIT SIMILE Timeline Javascript interactive widget. You and your class can use it to visualize temporal/ historical data. The data source can be a static XML file, or a dynamic Moodle Database activity (currently Moodle 1.9 only).

Requirements: tested with Moodle 1.9.7 and 2.0.2 (all Moodle 1.9.x should work, Moodle 2.x - static XML only).

Uses: MIT SIMILE (included); Javascript; also, parse_ini_string function (see compat.php).

Installation

  1. Download and uncompress the code files. Copy the renamed timelinewidget directory to the filter directory on the server, eg. /var/www/moodle/filter/timelinewidget/
  2. Log in to Moodle as admin, visit Site Administration | Plugins | Filters | Manage Filters. Scroll down and click on the icon for Timelinewidget to enable it.
  3. Try one of the Usage examples below.

Usage

Try one of the two modes:

  1. XML: Upload a timeline XML file to your course (see the example directory). Then, type the following in a resource using Moodle's rich-editor (note, line-breaks, which can be represented by <br /> are required). Substitute an appropriate integer in place of COURSE_ID and adjust the other parameters as needed. Minimal syntax:

    [Timeline]
    dataUrl = COURSE_ID/simile-invent.xml
    [/Timeline]
     

More examples in the Readme.
