The templates chosen for the ToolBuilder were chosen both for their simplicity and for their well-structured code. Keeping the tool templates simple will make the learning process quicker for creating new tools. At present the following tools are available as templates:
- Forum (lams_tool_forum)
- Notebook (lams_tool_notebook)
- Noticeboard (lams_tool_nb)
- Share Resources (lams_tool_rsrc)
If you want to base your new tool off another existing LAMS tools, then you will need to use our old RenameTool. But the RenameTool is not as nice as the plug-in, so use this plug-in if possible.
