Open Badges displayer plugin for Mahara

Open Badge is a concept developed by the Mozilla Foundation. Read more here:


Mahara 1.8 or newer.


  1. Copy the openbadgedisplayer/ folder to htdocs/blocktype/

  2. Log in as admin, go to Administration => Extensions, click install link for this plugin under blocktype column.

  3. Add Backpack sources to your htdocs/config.php file:

// Pull badges from Mozilla Backpack and
$cfg->openbadgedisplayer_source = array(
    'backpack' => '',
    'passport' => ''


In order to display badges in a portfolio or profile page, two things are needed:

  1. The User must create public badge collections in their Mozilla backpack.

  2. The email address used with backpack must be one of the verified addresses in Mahara profile.

After that, badge collections should become selectable in the block configuration popup.
