A quick demo of a Confluence plugin for a staff & student directory at the University of Nottingham.

It's a tiny Confluence plugin with a lot of client side scripting. We built it to use mainly JavaScript and REST APIs so that the main bulk of this could be reused over again elsewhere.

Little known facts:

  • You can search by username
  • You can lookup people by their extension number. Sssh.

Sadly, the data feed for China and Malaysia campuses never got built in.

Developed by David Simpson and Shaun Hare back in 2010.
