Since we now have support for Open Web Apps [1], it would be great to put together a library of approved apps that could be downloaded and installed via a convenient user interface inside the OpenMRS web application. We already have Modulus [7] that does this for OpenMRS Modules, so one strategy would be to extend Modulus to also work for OpenMRS Open Web Apps.


  • Extend Modulus backend and API to support uploading and downloading of OWAs
  • Implement App Store UI in OpenMRS OWA Module
