IFTTT releases platform for developers to build and publish applets

IFTTT is opening its platform to thousands of individual developers.


The new Maker tier will allow anyone who signs up to build and publish Applets by using the tools they unveiled for its partners in November 2016. Makers can build with more than 430 service APIs that are currently on the platform.

Before this launch, any user could build new Applets that worked with two IFTTT services which the user was connected to for personal use.

IFTTT is also unveiling a brand new Applet tool: filters. Makers and partners can now build Applets that work with Javascript filter code. This opens up an entire new set of use cases, from conditionals to randomization.

Onboarding Makers is a natural extension of the work they have invested in their platform since its launch. While the ability to integrate an API and build out endpoints into custom triggers and actions is still reserved for their partners, IFTTT sees the Maker tier as a way to nurture and encourage up-and-coming developers.
