An active community of Zotero users has developed a variety of plugins to provide enhancements, new features, and interfaces with other programs.
To install a plugin in Zotero, download its
.xpi file to your computer. Then, in Zotero, click “Tools → Add-Ons”, then drag the
.xpi for the plugin onto the Add-Ons window that opens.
Note: for apps and plugins for mobile devices, see mobile.
Several Zotero plugins are known to have been abandoned and are incompatible with current versions of Zotero, had their features incorporated into Zotero or other tools natively, or otherwise be unsuitable for general use.
These unmaintained plugins are listed here.
