On recent GeoServer versions 2.18 and above, Python community module is no longer appearing for download on https://build.geoserver.org/geoserver/ Is there a way to download and install this scripting extension on recent GeoServer versions? This was a very useful plugin.

We can continue to see it described on the official documentation https://docs.geoserver.org/latest/en/user/community/scripting/installation.html but the file no longer exists for download.

  • That looks like a bug in the documentation deployment - you'll note that page is linked to anything any more but doesn't seem to have been deleted.

History: Unmaintained since a while so removed with https://github.com/geoserver/geoserver/pull/4670

You need to dive into the code to make a version compatible for latest GeoServer on your own and become the maintainer if really interested.

To get the latest code source that contains the code, look at this particular commit https://github.com/geoserver/geoserver/tree/8109b626843b0ca7d4282b86c4589a64be62310e/src/community/script

Sorry for the bad news...
