Plugins Overview

Act! plugins are JS/HTML/CSS projects that run within the Act! application utilizing iframes. The connection to the Act! application is secured through the use of the @act/plugins package provided by the Act! team.

This package handles the necessary lifecycle events, localization hooks, and data access for your plugin to enable functionality comparable to the Act! application.

Furthermore, the Act! team ships the web components used within the project as a standalone front-end library for consumption by our partners. This library gives your plugin the look and feel of the Act! application within any project. Since web components are a W3C3 standard, they will be usable through every browser.

Ship your plugin through our developer platform. This allows you to market your application to all of the currently active Act! users.
