Here are the Highlights

We think these will be helpful as you start to utilize this resource.

  • Go here to see a fully working example for exporting item data in CSV format from the Cantemo Portal search page. Since the page was reworked in Portal 4.1.0 we wanted to show how this is done in the latest version of Portal.

  • Portal Plugin Template is a collection of dashboard widgets and user interface plugin examples—including their related back-end functionality.

  • If you want to implement a custom archive plugin, the Filesys Archive example plugin is a good starting point.

  • Use this Google Vision Rule to tag your images with AI. This will show you how to run Google Vision image analysis on images in Portal with a Python script.
