Plugins for JOSM

This is a list of all plugins available via the in JOSM integrated plugin manager. If you wrote a plugin and like JOSM to find it, add your site to the list. The link in the first column should point to a direct download of the jar file and should be named exact like the plugin (without the .jar).

Column version should contain a version number if and only if the plugins manifest contain the attribute 'Plugin-Version' matching the version number string on this site.

Note: You should put a link to a plugin, which only works with the latest release (JOSM 1.5 as of July the 12th 2007) here?

colorschemeChristof DallermasslAllows the user to create different color schemes and to switch between them. Just change the colors and create a new scheme. Used to switch to a white background with matching colors for better visibility in bright sunlight. Dialog is in JOSM's preferences on tab 'Map settings' (strange but true).

Open the JOSM preferences on tab "Plugins". Then click on the button "Get more plugins". Finally, enable all plugins you want to install. If JOSM complain it can't download a plugin, please fix the link on this page's table (should point to a downloadable jar file) or report the problem to the plugin author.

You can install plugins manually by putting the .jar files in a plugins directory under the Josm directory. Under windows, this is in C:\Documents and Settings\[username]\Application Data\JOSM\plugins. Then restart Josm and the plugins should show up.
