Zimbra SkillZ: The Sticky Notes Zimlet is Back!
Hello Zimbra Friends,
This week you get two Zimlet blog posts! Today’s post, brought to you by Synacor’s Channel Evangelist Barry de Graaff, shows you how to download, deploy (sideload) and use the Sticky Notes Zimlet so users can add Sticky Notes to Zimbra emails.
Some of you may remember the Sticky Notes Zimlet from way back, and now it’s been updated for Zimbra’s Modern UI!
If you aren’t familiar with Zimlets, start here https://github.com/Zimbra/zm-zimlet-guide.
This post has a lot of developer “tricks”. If you aren’t a developer and just want to install and try the Sticky Notes, run these commands as user `zimbra` on your Zimbra server:
zmzimletctl deploy zimbra-zimlet-sticky-notes.zip
Download the Sticky Notes Zimlet
Create a folder on your local computer to store the Sticky Notes Zimlet:
mkdir ~/zimbra_course_pt3 cd ~/zimbra_course_pt3 git clone https://github.com/Zimbra/zimbra-zimlet-sticky-notes cd zimbra-zimlet-sticky-notes npm install zimlet watch
The output of this command should be:
Compiled successfully! You can view the application in browser. Local: https://localhost:8081/index.js On Your Network: https://192.168.1.100:8081/index.js
Visit https://localhost:8081/index.js in your browser and accept the self-signed certificate. The index.js is a packed version of the

Sideload the Sticky Notes Zimlet
Log on to your Zimbra development server and make sure that you are seeing the modern UI. Then append
/sdk/zimlets to the URL.
