Heroku Launch Add-on Provider Program
Build your own add-ons for the Ruby cloud application platform, with their Add-on Provider Program.
Heroku have launched a new Add-on Provider Program, which allows the Heroku community to build their own add-ons, and make them available for all Heroku developers and customers to purchase. Program participants can also create a listing in the Add-ons catalogue and manage billing, payments, and upgrades through the Add-on Provider Program system.
The program consists of a developer kit and Resource Centre. The developer kit features a provisioning API, single-sign on, tools for local development and testing of API calls and a process for building, integrating and testing the add-ons. Meanwhile, the Resource Centre contains information such as how-to guides, sample code and advice for working with a cloud service.
