Modulus Add-on Marketplace for Node.js Developers


Node.js and MongoDB hosting provider Modulus has released a new set of add-ons as part of its add-on marketplace. The marketplace is essentially a "functionality options" zone for users.

Modulus explains that any customer can become an add-on provider through their Modulus account and the Add-On Provider Portal. There are five different add-ons now available from Modulus partners SendGrid, Keen IO, Iron IO, and MongoDB.

SendGrid is a cloud-based email service with real-time analytics to measure user engagement with the emails you send. So the example here is that SendGrid provided an add-on that delivers emails on behalf of companies that will help to increase deliverability and improve customer communications. Any integration with new or existing email systems is done through a SMTP or a REST API, SendGrid has a Node.js package that is open source and available on Github.

Keen.io collects and stores large amounts of event data. For example, it can take data from any occurrence or interaction that happens in an app throughout the day and store that data in a cloud database. Keen IO provided an add-on that enables users to track any event, including signups, upgrades, purchases, etc., and automatically ingest any new events and customers. There is an added query API, a large scalable event database, as well as analytics for customers.
