"Recent comments" dashlet for Alfresco Share

This extension is a dashlet that retrieves comments stored in the repository and/or in sites (can be added either on a user or on a site dashboard).
Dashlet's results can be filtered. Sort and filter preferences are saved for each user. There is also a RSS Feed.

Building the module

Check out the project if you have not already done so

    git clone git://

An Ant build script is provided to build JAR file OR AMP files containing the custom files.

To build JAR file, run the following command from the base project directory:

    ant dist-jar

If you want to build AMP files, run the following command:

    ant dist-amp

Installing the module

This extension is a standard Alfresco Module, so experienced users can skip these steps and proceed as usual.

1st method: Installing JAR (recommended)

  1. Stop Alfresco
  2. Copy recent-comments-X.X.X.jar into the /tomcat/shared/lib/ folder of your Alfresco (you might need to create this folder if it does not already exist).
  3. Start Alfresco

2nd method: Installing AMPs

  1. Stop Alfresco

  2. Use the Alfresco Module Management Tool to install the modules in your Alfresco and Share WAR files:

     java -jar alfresco-mmt.jar install recent-comments-alfresco-module-vX.X.X.amp $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/alfresco.war -force
     java -jar alfresco-mmt.jar install recent-comments-share-module-vX.X.X.amp $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/share.war -force
  3. Delete the $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/alfresco/ and $TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/share/ folders.
    Caution: please ensure you do not have unsaved custom files in the webapp folders before deleting.

  4. Start Alfresco
