Plugins

The following plugins are standard included with zim:

Plugins can be enabled and configured in the preferences dialog. A number of plugins have additional dependencies, like specific external programs, that are not required for the core functionality of zim. If one or more dependencies of a plugin are not fulfilled, these are marked red.

Installing Plugins

If a plugin is distributed as a separate python module, it should be installed such that zim can find it. For use specific plugins you can install them Python's "per user site-package directory".

For example for python 2.6 this folder is:
Unix (including Mac OS X): ~/.local/lib/python2.6/site-packages
Windows: %APPDATA%/Python/Python26/site-packages

See http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0370/ for details.
