Plugins Added to the Plugin Directory

It’s been about 72 hours, and already we’ve got plugins ready to add to the directory.  If you haven’t checked it out yet, make sure to visit the Plugins page to see plugins from community members and Twilio employees, which you can download and install right away.  Installation of plugins is really simple, just drop each one into your plugins/ directory, and away you go!

Getting Listed

Have you build a plugin you’d like us to list? It’s really easy, just submit your plugin. We’ll test it out to make sure it works, and add it to the list. We’ll also be featuring many of the plugins and plugin authors here on our blog. Can’t wait to see what you build!

Plugins Contest

Twilio is running a developer contest that ends a week from Sunday, at 11:59pm PST on June 26th. All plugins are eligible to enter, and all plugins submitted on our plugins page will be considered! All we require is that you fill out the form, and that your plugin works when we test it out.  SUBMIT HERE

Free vs. Paid Plugins

We’ve had a few people ask if it would be alright to build plugins that users pay for with PayPal, much like some of the premium plugins on WordPress.  We’re VERY supportive of developers making money with their plugins, and we’re happy to list paid plugins on our site (we will mark them paid so end users know before they click through).
