e107 Now Welcomes Third Party Plugins & Themes

Developers can now submit their plugins and themes to the e107 plugin and theme directory.

e107 is a free and open-source content management system powered by PHP and MySQL. Despite being maintained as a hobby project for most of its long life, e107 has accrued quite the user base, with well over 8,000 websites running on it.

e107 also detailed the best way to go about creating plugins and themes:

“The “Plugin Manager' and “Theme Manager” also have some tools to assist you in the creation of various files, such as theme.xml for theme developers and plugin.xml and admin_config.php for plugin developers. There's also a new language-file scanning tool in the Plugin Manager which can help with upgrading old plugins and finding unused LAN definitions.”

Developers wishing to contribute and struff their digital stuff will need a Github account to get going. It's not currently known is e107 will ever convert its them and plugin directories into marketplaces, enabling developers to sell their products as well as give them away, like they now can.
