Importing H5P content to Kolibri


Thanks so much for an amazing educational solution.
I am exploring the possibility of importing H5P content into Kolibri, and I’ve found on RiceCooker that there is experimental support.

I’ve also seen that the contributions happened at the end of 2019, and I haven’t seen any more development.

How experimental is it?
Has anyone used it?
Have you found any issues?


Hi @nicopace,

Thanks for getting in touch!

We have mostly pegged the support as experimental in order not to raise expectations without additional testing. Currently we are able to import via Ricecooker and use on Kolibri. On Kolibri there is a plugin to render H5P files that can be activated with the following terminal command:
kolibri plugin enable kolibri.plugins.h5p_viewer

This should then allow import of H5P files and allow them to be displayed and rendered. I am not aware of any extant issues with H5P rendering, but we have also not extensively tested it with a wide range of H5P files, hence our hedging!

Let me know if you run into any issues testing it.

Kind Regards,

Will enable the plugin and try it on my local setup, and report if there is any issue.

Thanks @richard,
