Below are some of the most commonly asked questions related to Plugins. If you have any additional questions, please reach out to us on the Front Community.

Where do Front plugins display? What are the differences between the plugins available?
Front offers two types of plugins: composer plugins and sidebar plugins. Composer plugins display in the message composer while sidebar plugins display in the integration sidebar. Learn more about the types of plugins in the Overview topic.

What coding language do I need to use in order to build a custom plugin with Front?
You can use any web framework or library you wish: it's just a web page embedded in Front.

Do you have an example of a working plugin we can use or sample code?
Yes! Check out our Sample Applications page and our Getting Started sample plugin.

Do you have a component library I can use to facilitate the development of my plugin?
Yes! The Front UI Kit provides ready-to-use components for use in the React framework.

Why are my links not working?
Because the plugin is running in a sandboxed iFrame, links that are targeting a new tab (via target="_blank") or window.open will stop working.
Instead, you need to use the openUrl method to request Front to open the URL.
