Expand your reach

Place your app or service in front of millions of creators each month by building a plugin in Kapwing.

Simple API

The Kapwing plugin-helpers NPM package allows you to easily import Kapwing's API into any application.

Flexible control

Plugins run in an isolated iframe allowing developers to have full control over the look and feel of a plugin inside Kapwing.

Built for both users and developers in mind

For users, plugins provide a simple way to connect Kapwing to any app or service that offers a plugin inside of Kapwing. Plugins like Unsplash, Pexels, and Pixabay allow for easy access to a variety of assets and stock content. Other plugins, like Giphy Text, allow users to easily manipulate dynamic text content directly inside of Kapwing.

Developers can get started with building plugins inside of Kapwing in just a few lines of code. Plugins can potentially reach millions of creators each month and allow for a new surface for your tool or service to reach users. If you're interested in building a plugin in the current beta phase, please reach out via this Google form.

Getting started with developing plugins

Developers can connect their app or service to Kapwing and reach a potential audience of millions of creators each month. Kapwing plugins are essentially full applications that run inside the Kapwing editor, allowing developers to have full control over the look and feel of their app or service.

1. Sign up for the beta

While Kapwing Plugins is still in a beta phase, please reach out to our team to let us know what kind of plugin you'd like to build and how we can work together to make it possible. We're a small team and we want to work closely with developers in this beta period of plugins.

3. Build and launch your plugin

Once your plugin is developed, you'll be able to launch it within Kapwing and reach creators within Kapwing Studio. We'll work closely together to help support your launch and make sure that things go smoothly on both ends.

Have an idea for a plugin but not the right development resources currently? Please reach out and still let us know! We'd love to get new ideas for plugins and see if we can help make them a reality.
