IFTTT, a platform that enables anyone to create custom, conditional interactions between popular apps, online services, and devices, will begin enabling individual developers to build and publish their own applets for others to use.
The platform announced last August that it would begin allowing third-party companies to create recipes and bring IFTT functionality to their own apps and services through a partner platform, and companies including Adobe and others quickly signed on.
IFTTT is now expanding this partner program (after replacing its "recipe-based" system with applets, a far more robust version of the technology), which will make it possible to bundle multiple actions into a single trigger.
The new capability is available to individual developers via
a free "maker" tier that lets anyone build and publish the applets. In addition to the $199/month Partner tier, and the tailored $499-plus Partner Plus tier, anyone with an interest in IFTTT can build applets that work with the over 430 service APIs that are currently on the platform.
Individuals have actually been able to build applets that work with two IFTTT services for personal use, but the new offering will provide these users an opportunity to publish their applets for others to use and showcase everything on a dedicated maker profile page.
