WIRIS plugin for Moodle

Add a fully WYSIWYG for scientific expressions (WIRIS EDITOR) and, optionally, an advanced calculator tool (WIRIS CAS). Enabled editing to STEM related topics (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). 

WIRIS EDITOR is a mathematical visual (WYSIWYG) editor. You can use a large collection of icons nicely organized in thematic tabs in order to create formulas or equations for any web content. You can create and edit your formulas in a visual environment, just click on the WIRIS editor icon for creation or double-click on the formula for edition. No maintenance when upgrading Moodle to a new minor version. It is based on JavaScript and compatible with HTML 5.

WIRIS EDITOR offers a chemistry toolbar. The maths and the chemistry palette are available from different icons in the rich text editor.

WIRIS CAS is an online platform for mathematical calculations designed for education. You can access a powerful calculation toolbar through an HTML page that includes integrals and limits calculation, function graphing in 2D or 3D and symbolic matrices manipulation, among others. WIRIS cas covers all mathematical topics from primary school to university level (Calculus, Algebra, Geometry, Differential Equations...).

WIRIS tools can be used for free up to a certain level of use per natural year. Please read license conditions and prices at WIRIS store.

In order to use WIRIS tools for editing you need to combine WIRIS filter with  WIRIS plugin for Atto and/or WIRIS plugin for TinyMCE.

More than editing, better quizzes.

    What is the plan for WIRIS Hand? I have created an addition to the existing plugins (as a proof of concept), that adds a hand icon in the text editors. It pops up a window with the WIRIS hand embedded, and then grabs the MathML and places it in the editor. Works great, just wondering if that is going to be included in the WIRIS editor at some point or what the licensing requirements are to actually put it into production.

    Hi Matthew,

    HAND & EDITOR will be 'merged' very soon. We still have to decide the concrete terms. It may be the case that depending on the device (touchable vs desktop) the default mode is handwriting or palette based.

    If you want to discuss licensing terms the best option is that you send a message to sales@wiris.com

    Latest version is missing the title string for the new chemistry editor button (on atto editor toolbar).

    Yes, the update fixes that for me. Thanks for your prompt work. Good to see the new Chemistry editing features.

    One other thing, which may also relevant for the Maths editor. Is there a way to chose upright (rather than italic) lower-case greek letters?
    I appreciate the convention for maths variables is to use italic lower case greek letters and that you already have an upright lower case pi constant, but upright lower-case greek characters would be useful for some chemical nomenclature, physical constants etc.

    By default WIRIS works with an auto-italic mode with the MATH PALETTE.
    http://www.wiris.com/en/editor/docs/manual/autoitalics

    That feature is not activated in the CHEMISTRY PALETTE. Hence you should be have to upright lower-case greek letters.
    You can have a try in the demo http://www.wiris.com/plugins/demo/chemistry/

    Hi everyone,

    Aplogise if this issue has been raised up.. i try to make sense of the above dicussion without success. I am very new to moodle and do not understand technical language too much. I am trying to create a maths course
    in moodle and i wish to install this plugin. I had succefully installed WIRIS plugin filter and WIRIS plugin for Atto editor. However when i try to install WIRIS quizzes at first it prompts me to manually update the plugin type. And after i chose 'Question type' i am still unable install. I get this error prompt.

    Validating qtype_type ... Error
    [Error] File version.php not found [null]
    Installation aborted due to validation failure

    @HAJA MARICAR We understand you are trying to install WIRIS quizzes using the "Install add-ons" feature from Moodle's user interface.
    Unfortunately, that installation method is not currently possible for WIRIS quizzes.
    You need to install WIRIS quizzes manually as described at http://www.wiris.com/en/quizzes/docs/moodle/install

    I cannot find the WIRIS button on the ATTO toolbar. The filter is enabled and WIRIS says it is installed correctly.

    @Matthew Wilson:
    Please check if WIRIS is present at http:///admin/settings.php?section=editorsettingsatto under "Toolbar config".
    You should see a line "math = wiris", if it is not present please add it.

    I'm currently testing the WIRIS editor plugins. I can't seem to get the Wiris editor buttons to appear in Atto editor. Also, no buttons that are in place AFTER the WIRIS entry (on Toolbar config) are rendered on the toolbar either.

    I see some JS errors in Chromes console (attached) which is referring to the only button (HTML) to be rendered AFTER the WIRIS button:
    https://1drv.ms/i/s!AkamgAQZKzFhgcQkVfiu0frmKIk6sg

    If I remove WIRIS from toolbar config, everything else renders fine and the above JS error doesn't appear.

    Filter is enabled correctly, MathJax is disabled and the editor and buttons appear correctly on TinyMCE editor.

    Anyone have any ideas??

    @Tristan,

    Thanks for your feedback and sorry for the inconvenience.

    This issue would be fixed in our next release (available next week). You can downgrade to our 4.7.0 version or - if you want - install our development release (development branch in GitHub repositories).

    Best regards,

    Thanks for your quick reply!

    I've just got it working actually. The following defaults weren't autofilled on installation in the filter settings page. I copied the default values into the corresponding boxes and it's working now!

    Service host
    filter_wiris | imageservicehost
    Default: www.wiris.net

    Service path
    filter_wiris | imageservicepath
    Default: /demo/editor/render
