The release v10.05.24 is the first release of ONA the provides the plugin framework. This framework is an initial start so it will likely go through quite a bit of change as it develops along. By default the NMAP plugin will come with ONA.

Manage Plugins


To install a plugin, simply clone/untar/unzip it into the /opt/ona/www/local/plugins directory. It is recommended you clone the project as you can more easily upgrade this way.

cd /opt/ona/www/local/plugins;git clone<plugin_name>.git

Once you have placed the plugin into this directory, it should be visible in the "Plugins -> Manage Plugins" menu option. Simply find it in the list and click the Install icon and follow any instructions.

  • err - Install dialog, click this to complete plugin installation
  • help - Help icon, takes you to the plugins online documentation (if one exists)
  • plugin - Activate or deactivate a plugin. If the icon is green the plugin is active, if it is grey it is inactive. Click to toggle.

Available Plugins

The following is a list of plugins that I currently have in development. Most are functional, others are not quite ready for prime time. I'll try and release them as they become useful for general consumption.
