Jmol/JSmol filter for embedding interactive 3D chemical structures in Moodle. The master branch uses JSmol, the HTML5/JavaScript version, tested with Moodle 2.3.x and later versions. The MOODLE_2_STABLE branch uses the Jmol Java applet with Moodle 2.0.x and later versions. The MOODLE_19_STABLE branch uses the Jmol Java applet with Moodle 1.9.x and earlier. The Jmol filter was originally written by Dan Stowell and is now maintained by Geoff Rowland.

    Hi,
    I've noticed this recently:

    the file yui/jsmol/JME/JME.jar isn't GPL. http://www.molinspiration.com/jme/ states non-cmmercial use only and as such is not GPL. Please ensure that non-GPL software is not included in your zip so we can approve it.

    Please see http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Plugin_validation#Manual_checks.

    Fyi, an alternative seems to be this:
    http://peter-ertl.com/jsme/ -- contains BSD 3-clause license (GPL compatible)

    Hi Aparup



    Apologies for overlooking this. The JME.jar was only included as a matter of convenience and can be deleted.



    I'm in the process of fixing a few bugs and will remove JME.jar from the updated version.

    Hi again Aparup
    I have now updated the code on github (master branch) but am not sure how to add the updated code to this plugins database.
    Thanks

    Ahah!

    I have just seen the Administration block on the right!

    Having updated on Github, Should I 'Edit this plugin' or 'Add a new version'?

    Then 'Schedule this plugin for reapproval'?

    Please advise

    Geoff

    Hi Geoffrey,
    yes, do 'Add a new version' and hide the old version (via download versions tab). schedule it for approval, scheduling for approval seems to be done already i notice smile.

    Also please read the following FAQ created recently, it hopefully explains how to clarify this plugin better.

    Version 4.1 does not work in my moodle 2.7.3
    - the filter does not show the 3d-molecule
    - no errormessage is shown

    had to uninstall version 4.1 and reinstall version 4.0

    Hi Andreas

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Just retested JSmol filter installation and upgrade on Moodle 2.8.1+. This worked for me. I'll shortly set up a Moodle 2.7.3 instance to test further.

    I hope to release a new Jmol filter version 5 in the next week or so which will have a number of performance improvements and new features. So, I'm keen to squash any bugs.

    Hi again Andreas.

    Just reproduced the issue on a fresh Moodle 2.7.3+ installation. Will investigate further and release an update ASAP.
