Hi, all

    As I am exlporing diagram drawing software for education usage, I found that might be a good app and an integration with mahara would be a good learning and presenting solution. I also found that there was a free plugin of for Wordpress(, so I suppose the vendor should have motivation to add it on Mahara which is mainly for education market.

   Kristina, could you look into this possibility?

Best Regards

Hello Jason,

I'm familiar with and it is a handy tool for quick wireframes. I had a look at how to embed a file, and you don't need a plugin if you share your file on Google Drive or any of the other online storage options because you can use the embed code. It is a couple of steps though to get it to work:

  1. Create your file on one of the online storage options.
  2. Authorize the app.
  3. Set up the embed code.
  4. Copy it into Mahara after having allowed
  5. I had to authorize the app again once I had it in Mahara.
  6. I could see my drawing.

This is a bit cumbersome and you'd have to check if you also need to give people access to the files in your online storage directly or if takes care of that. A proper plugin would probably make that process a bit more streamlined if the development team wanted to look into that. There is some basic information on creating a plugin available on the wiki.
