GitHub has this week launched a new service called the GitHub marketplace for developers to help them find the tools they require for projects or to advance their skills to the next level.
The GitHub Marketplace has been created to offer developers a new way to discover and purchase tools. Watch the introductory video below to learn more about the new service which is now available via the link at the bottom of this article.
Github explains more:
Today, we’re building on our launches at GitHub Universe 2016—making it easier than ever to evolve and customize your workflow. Find integrations and put them to work in minutes with GitHub Marketplace, pair developer tools and fine-grained repository permissions with GitHub Apps, or build the exact tool you need with a new, production-ready version of our GraphQL API. Together, these tools give you everything you need to set up a custom workflow that grows with your goals.
Find apps to use across your development process, from continuous integration to project management and code review. Then start using them without setting up multiple accounts or payment methods. More than a dozen integrators have apps in GitHub Marketplace today, including Travis CI, Appveyor, Waffle, ZenHub, Sentry, and Codacy—with more coming soon!
GitHub Apps (formerly Integrations) is now out of pre-release, giving you more control over what you build. As first-class actors, GitHub Apps take actions themselves directly through the API—no user impersonation (or user seat) required—and they have granular permissions to access only the content they need. Install them on an organization or user account, then give them access to the repositories of your choice. Learn more.
The GitHub GraphQL API is fresh out of its Early Access program. Create your own tools with greater access to data than ever before using the same API that we use to build GitHub. Ask for the exact data you need in a single request and get updates in real time—no more hitting multiple endpoints or waiting for new ones after a feature has been released.
