Returns the count of unread/read messages in moodle

To test: 1- install the plugin in moodle/local/moodlecount/ 2- Read, setup and run moodle/local/moodlecount/client/client.php


You can install via composer or copy and paste the files. The module lives in the /local/ folder.

Install via composer

First navigate to your moodle directory:

cd /var/www/moodle-folder.

Add the module to your composer list: composer require otago/moodlecount:dev-master --no-update

Update composer: composer update --no-dev

Note if you're installing on a dev environment you'll omit the --no-dev


After installation, you'll need to update the moodle database with your module. Simply login as an admin and moodle should prompt you.

Next you'll need to add the functions to the list of functions to your web service. Navigate to Site administration > Plugins > Web services > External services. Select your web service you want (if you have not created a role, user and service for web services, google it) to add your functions to, and click 'Add functions'.

Then select local_op_wstemplate_count_read_messages or local_op_wstemplate_count_unread_messages from the list.
