Developers

We provide a simple API, which is flexible to whatever your needs are. We assume nothing about your community, the nature of the context of post. The relationship between the post, context, notification, and the reply is defined by you.

What we do is, verify that it is genuine, process replies efficiently, sending them on to you so you don't need specialist infrastructure to integrate with the mail service. This mean you can make plugins, addons, and extension to serve any websites, through simple setups.

If you have multiple context of which you want to process replies for, that is fine, we don't discriminate or restrict this.

We also provide a list of known plugins, addons, and extensions for various community software. Please check to see if a solution exist, or request that your solution be listed.
