Introduction to Extensions
We built Storyblok with a robust and flexible plugin system to give our customers the power to extend Storyblok with custom applications or fields. There are three different ways in which you can extend Storyblok: Custom Applications, Field-Type Plugins, or Tool Plugins.
These extensions enable developers to:
Integrate any 3rd party platforms
Build custom applications in Storyblok
Deliver custom content structures via our API
Enhance Editor experience
Field-Type Plugin, Custom Applications, and Tool Plugins
Field-type plugins allow you to extend the visual editor with custom fields like an icon picker or a google maps location selector.
Tool Plugins are a different way to extend your visual editor. They allow you to improve your productivity by adding some functionality to the editor. Some examples of Tool Plugins are importing and exporting content or a custom clipboard.
Your plugin will enhance your editor’s experience as you can now not only use our default fields but develop your custom view and flows for your editors.
We created a printable A4 Cheatsheet with all the references for the different types of extensions.
