Home Download Plugins


The functionality included in Beaver is just basic functionality, so Beaver stays light-weight.
Other features are available through plugins.

For users:

Currently, the following plugins are available. Extract the archive, then open a terminal and go to the extraction directory. Do make and, when finished, make install to install system-wide, or make install_local to install the plugin in your home directory. Now, the plugin is available the next time you start Beaver. You can activate plugins via the Plugins dialog (Tools > Plugins).
