Open Source Plugins and (coming soon) Corona Store
At the end of January, I talked about wanting to make plugins more open.
Today, we’re doing two things to make that happen:
Open Source Plugins
First, we are open sourcing Corona plugins on github!
These plugin projects are real-world examples of CoronaEnterprise projects. They come straight out of the Corona plugin directory, the same plugins that our hosted on our build server. They show you how we are using (dogfooding) Corona’s native APIs to extend Corona’s core functionality.
Second, we are laying the groundwork for a Corona Store. The goal is to enable you to sell your plugins (and other resources) to the rest of the Corona community — or make them available for free.
The grand opening won’t happen until later this year, but we are accepting applications for free plugins (you can start charging for it after the grand opening): Corona Store application form.
Also, if you have ideas or are looking for ideas, here’s a couple of resources that will be helpful:
- We are making extended CoronaEnterprise trials available for plugin developers. E-mail
enterprise at coronalabs dot com.
- Lots of real-world examples of Corona plugins available under the MIT license.
- A list of feature requests that could be implemented as plugins.
Finally, check out our FAQ.
