My top Alfresco Addons

Recently we upgraded to Alfresco 201602GA (5.1.e CE) with all their new capabilities such as smart folders, new admin console or model manager. But once you installed Alfresco CE (or EE), you always need some extra Community power. This is a selection of our favourites for our Alfresco installations.
 
1. Javascript Console: Simply fantastic, essential plugin for administrators and developers in Alfresco installations. 
 
 
Also execute script addon in Share extras is quite useful in 5.x version , but it needs some changes for make it work in recent versions
 
2. Alfresco Site Creators: I do not remember a recent Alfresco Installation without this customization. Must have!
 
 
 
3. Alfresco Site Space Templates: The missing templates for Alfresco Sites.
 
 
 
4. Libreoffice Edit Online: No applet based, simple as webdav based edition hyperlink for protocol registering.
 
 
 
5. Uploader Plus: How many times does a client ask you for filling metadata before uploading the document ? 
 
 
 
6. Alfresco List Manager: Dynamic Lists administration for your Alfresco Share forms and content models. A simple way for avoiding redeploying constraint lists in content models continuously. It is very useful, when these data is not completely static, for example a list of clients.
 
 
 
 
7. Alfresco Bulk Import v.2.0: Enhanced Bulk Import Tool for (not inplace?) content migrations.
 
 
 
8. Trashcan Cleaner: Do no forget to take out the thrash.
 
 
 
9. PDF Toolkit: Useful PDF actions for content rules split, merge and many more.  
   
 
 
10. Alfresco Audit Analysis and Reporting: The BI reference project for Alfresco Suite.
 
 
For Alfresco 4.x users Audit Share is a very very nice addon --> https://github.com/atolcd/alfresco-audit-share
 
 
11. Alfresco Groovy Runner: Nice console for accesing Alfresco Java API. Well documented, with many examples.
 
 
 
12. Alfresco version by name: Very nice customization for the default behaviour when uploading documents in Share. 
 
 
 
Other admin basics for EE users are:
 
 
1. Support Tools for Enterprise Edition: A "must" have for every Alfresco Enterprise installation.
 
 
A JMX console like JMX term is quite useful --> http://wiki.cyclopsgroup.org/jmxterm/
 
 
2. Alfresco Nagios Plugin: A very useful check_jmx plugin for Alfresco (more adequate for Enterprise Editions) although basic ports monitoring and checks are also valid for Community Edition.
