Top 4 most popular plugins for Confluence pages πŸš€

Looking for ways to make your Confluence pages more beautiful, structured and interactive? Sometimes you might have to push beyond the limits of out-of-the-box Confluence. That's where Confluence plugins come in.

The Atlassian Marketplace is full of add-ons that can help improve your Confluence. Confluence apps can be used by both admins and end users to extend functionality, add more design options and integrate with other tools. But which plugin should you start with?

Let's look at four of the most popular Confluence apps available in the Atlassian Marketplace.

Tip: To find popular apps, type "Confluence" into the search bar in the marketplace.


1. Gliffy Diagrams for Confluence

Gliffy proclaims to be "the most popular cloud diagramming and drawing app on the Atlassian marketplace". This market-leading app boasts user-friendly drag-and-drop functionality, which makes it easy to create diagrams in Confluence.

It can be quickly mastered by technical and non-technical users, giving all team members the tools to build custom charts.

Gliffy diagrams are ideal for use as a single source of truth because they support fully-searchable text and linked diagrams.

2. ScriptRunner for Confluence

ScriptRunner is available for Jira, Bitbucket and Confluence, making it one of the most versatile and powerful add-ons on the market.

ScriptRunner for Confluence empowers admins with the ability to automate work and extend capabilities. Think of it as your all-in-one admin tool to get more out of Confluence, whether that's through managing Confluence content in bulk or creating bespoke macros and automation.

Although it's best suited to technical users, code-free features make it easy to master, while Groovy scripting can unlock even more power.

3. Table Filter and Charts for Confluence

Table Filter and Charts for Confluence is one of the most downloaded Confluence add-ons on the Marketplace. Its simple name perfectly describes what the app does: it lets you build table filters and charts in Confluence.

Confluence's built-in table and chart functionality are not flexible or customisable enough for many users who use Table Filter and Charts to build Gantt and pie charts and filter data within tables.

4. Content Formatting Macros for Confluence

Many Confluence users feel limited by the app's native design and user experience features. Content Formatting Macros for Confluence has been developed to address this.

It's a suite of easy-to-use macros (tools) that help users transform content and pages in Confluence. This app is ideal for anyone using Confluence as a wiki, intranet, documentation or project space, letting admins and end users make pages more beautiful and functional.
