How to install modules from the ZMR into your Zotonic install

Zotonic 0.10 and higher

The zotonic shell command makes module installation from the ZMR dead simple:

zotonic modules install mod_geo

This will retrieve the module info on the ZMR (by default this site,, clone it using git or mercurial in the user modules directory, recompile the module and tell zotonic to flush its module cache.

After running this command, the only thing left to do is to visit the admin of the site you want to install the module in, and activate the module in the modules section.

Older Zotonic versions

Older versions use an alternative syntax:

zotonic installmodule mod_geo
