Telerik Launches Industry's First Apache Cordova Verified Plugins Marketplace

Couchbase, Leanplum and AYLIEN plugins among two dozen debut partners delivering certified Cordova/PhoneGap plugins for developers

WALTHAM, Mass.--()--Telerik® today announced the availability of the Verified Plugins Marketplace, the first-of-its-kind gallery of Cordova/PhoneGap plugins to extend and empower cross-platform hybrid mobile development. Free to the community, the gallery provides thoroughly tested and documented plugins to help ease app development initiatives.

“We are excited for Couchbase to be one of the first enterprise-level LINQ providers in the Telerik Verified Plugin Marketplace”

Telerik recently surveyed nearly 2,200 developers and IT decision makers. The survey results indicate more than 80 percent of respondents are using open source within their development cycles.1 However, enterprises are still hesitant to fully leverage open source solutions that are not certified and supported. The Verified Plugins Marketplace provides a single location to add and access a series of Telerik-certified plugins necessary for mobile development.

“In the true spirit of open source, we’ve delivered a single destination for developers to get the latest, proven plugins and also have the opportunity to talk directly with app authors,” said Aaron Mahimainathan, Chief Product Officer, Telerik. “We know Cordova/PhoneGap is at the heart of hybrid mobile development and our Verified Plugin Marketplace is open to everyone using PhoneGap to push mobile apps forward. In fact, it’s much more than a marketplace—it’s a real community that enables deep dev-to-dev communication about the technologies that matter to them.”

Since launching in August, Telerik has posted more than two-dozen plugins ranging from individual developer submissions to plugins supporting technologies from CouchbaseLeanplum and AYLIEN. Plugins range from Google AdMob banners to a background audio plugin, calendaring, barcode scanning, push notifications and more. Telerik plans to expand the marketplace with additional plugins from enterprise-level partners and individual authors.

“We are excited for Couchbase to be one of the first enterprise-level LINQ providers in the Telerik Verified Plugin Marketplace,” said Wayne Carter, Chief Architect of Mobile, Couchbase. “By adding LINQ on top of Couchbase Server, Telerik is making it easier for the .NET developer community to build scalable, enterprise class mobile applications on the industry’s most complete NoSQL database.”

Telerik is the provider of Telerik PlatformSM, a cross-platform mobile development solution, built on open standards, for iOS, Android and Windows Phone development. It addresses the entire application development lifecycle and integrates with numerous tools, frameworks and services. While the Verified Plugin Marketplace does not require use of Telerik Platform, customers worldwide benefit from using Telerik Platform alongside AngularJS, Kendo UI, PhoneGap, GitHub and more.
