Bubble is a leading no-code platform with a robust user base of over 3 million. Bubble plugins are a core part of the platform's allure, acting as Bubble’s take on integrations. These plugins enable users to enhance the platform with additional elements, API calls, and actions.
You have the opportunity to build and monetize plugins for the broader community or develop private plugins for bespoke code solutions in your applications. If you’re keen to understand the nuts and bolts of these integrations, let’s take a deep dive.
