This generator uses the Marvel API to generate users from your favorite characters in your Moodle instance.

To generate a user just type the name and press the button. The user will be automatically created in your Moodle instance. This user will be created with the name, profile picture and description. By default the password for all generated users will be generated randomly, but you have the option to add your own password manually.

You can get your own keys for free signing up at https://developer.marvel.com. All characters generated by this plugin are property of Marvel.

    Great idea - Great plugin - Thanks!

    Note: If you have a typo in the API settings, your installation will freeze..

    To dev: Maybe it is better to have the fields default empty?

    Hi, thanks so much for the feedback! I think it makes sense to remove the default values, then it will ask for the keys after installation. I will fix it. Cheers!

    Really awesome plugin. However, it searches for an EXACT match , or partial ;) ( IE: if you want Dr. Strange, you need to search for "doctor Strange". on a partial match, it creates the user "stranger".

    So, i (locally) added this link to the plugin within languagestrings:
    https://www.marvel.com/comics/characters
    this way, I can allways check for the CORRECT spelling of a marvel character I want as a user...

    maybe you can add this to the plugin too?

    Hi Daniel, thanks so much for your feedback! Yes, this seems a great idea, sometimes is not easy to find the correct spelling of a character, so I will add your suggestion to the plugin. Please feel free to create PRs in Github or give me more suggestions like this one to improve the plugin. Cheers!
