Status of porting extensions to Foswiki

Foswiki aims to be totally transparent about what extensions actually work, and what value they can bring. We are not interested in marketing hype or FUD, we are interested in bringing value to end users.

Foswiki has the power to use many TWiki® extensions without modifications when used with the TWikiCompatibilityPlugin. However many, many TWiki extensions have become obsolete over the years, and other extensions will benefit from the "makeover" they get in the process of being ported to the Foswiki namespace.

The following tables show the current status of all TWiki extensions. The list is assembled from Subversion and from the list of published extensions on It does not list new extensions developed for Foswiki alone.

  • In SVN means "Developed in Subversion" - is the topic in the TWiki repository marked as "Developed in SVN"? If not the Foswiki subversion version cannot be trusted!
  • Namespace means the development namespace of the extension. Many extensions in the Foswiki namespace support auto-porting to TWiki, and extensions in the TWiki namespace can be run in Foswiki using the TWikiCompatibilityPlugin. So this is mainly a statement of how much the author/maintainer cares about the extension; if they have ported to Foswiki, they definitely care.
  • Author/Maintainer - who is the most likely person to look after it. A person means the author has asked to be contacted.
The assumption is that if an author is not registered on this site, then their extensions should be help wanted or dropped.

If you make any updates to the status of these extensions please help out by maintaining these tables

You can use Item1008 to delete dropped extensions from SVN.

Author wants help with the port help wanted

These extensions have not been ported to Foswiki yet. This is usually because no-one has expressed an interest in them; in many cases it means "help we don't even know if this works or has any value" so you can help by installing these extensions, testing them and updating the Notes column, even if you have limited Perl skills.

Dropped dropped

These extensions have been evaluated by a variety of Foswiki developers (often their author), and placed here for a variety reasons, as noted.

If you see a plugin that you use, don't despair! This is not a "permanent banishment" area. Some of these plugins are listed because we don't think they have a user base. Perhaps you can help by porting the plugin into the Foswiki namespace? (try the core/tools/twiki2foswiki script) Or, ask for our help with the conversion (and possibly enhancements).

NOTE: All skins except NatSkin, PatternSkin, WidgetsSkin, QuickMenuSkin have been deprecated, but can easily be revived if interest warrants.
