    Just wondering if we could have a Developer Tools category here? That would cover add-ons that primarily cater for developers rather than day-to-day users.

    At this time there isn't. The closet thing would be other add-ons or development tutorials.

    I know. I can see there isn't one :p

    I'm suggesting we create one :)

    Responding to the first sentence in your post. ;) I'm not sure it would be used often. I'm not sure I've seen any already released?

    Edit: you said could. This is what you get for skimming on mobile. Lol

    xfrocks API imo too. That's more developer level. Most average forum owners have no clue what to do with it.

    Yeah, agreed. In fact there's two API add-ons, I think.

    Then there's the Kotami bridge by @Luke Foreman. Definitely more of a developer tool. It would be up to those developers to decide if their add-on is better situated in that category or not, of course, but I'm sure some will.

    EDIT: @guiltar has an add-on that added some additional code events, that's definitely dev focussed too.

    Or if too many categories from a clutter stand point, could also make it importers & Developer Tools

    I'd really like to see this implemented @Chris D - it will help keep useful tools together in one place. :)

    I agree, although this appears to have been lost for eons...

    I think it would be fantastic! I know @Jon W has released a couple of them, so has @Chris D... Speaking of, now that you're all official now.... ;) I know I'd consider making something to put in there :)
