Our customers love our GitHub and GitLab integrations. You can set them up with a single click and save countless hours of your team's deployment workflow.
There are similarly powerful services available for every aspect of development. Performance, analytics, security, payments, databases, CMS... it's an infinite list. We believe all these services should be one click away from your existing workflow.
Towards that goal, we are thrilled to introduce the ZEIT Now Integrations Platform.
But that's not all. We are also announcing the first-ever ZEIT Hackathon to bring our community of developers, customers, and partners together to create their own integrations.
For this hackathon, we've invited an inspiring panel of expert judges and put together some amazing prizes. All the details can be found on the hackathon website.

What Integrations Are

Integrations are one-click seamless extensions for the ZEIT Dashboard. Their custom UI can be securely provided by a third-party service.
Our staff have already created beta integrations for Lighthouse, Slack, and Google Cloud. The source code for these integrations is public. You're welcome to use them as the base for your own integration.

Marketplace

ZEIT Now Integrations can be published to the Marketplace, where they are listed by category. This includes not only integrations from our team and partner companies, but also integrations built by you.
Anyone can add an integration to their account through its landing page.

Integrations Dashboard

Once enabled, integrations appear within your Dashboard, listed as a series of configurations.
You can find the UI supplied by an integration on its configuration page. In the following example, the Lighthouse integration displays scores for a project's latest deployment.

Creating Integrations via the Developer Console

Through Integrations, we are enabling you to securely extend our platform, in any manner you desire:
  • Add new features to the platform
  • Securely extend our UI
  • Respond to events
  • Accelerate your workflow
You can create an integration using techniques you're already familiar with. All you need is an HTTP endpoint which returns a string containing a set of UI Components that we support. We call this endpoint a UIHook. To create one, you can make use of our @zeit/integration-utils package and deploy it with Now as a Serverless Lambda function.
// index.js

const { withUiHook } = require('@zeit/integration-utils')

let count = 0

module.exports = withUiHook(({ payload }) => {
  count += 1
  return `
    <Page disableTheme>
      <P>Counter: ${count}</P>
      <Button>Count Me</Button>
    </Page>
  `
})
The source code for this example is public on GitHub. The Counter integration is shown in action below:
Once created, you can submit your integration for Marketplace approval via the Developer Console.

Conclusion

The ZEIT Now Integrations Platform opens a new world of possibilities by unifying your existing workflow with your favorite third party services.
We are very excited about the first-ever ZEIT Hackathon, and welcome everyone to participate. It's a great opportunity to create a new integration accessible to 200,000+ developers, and to interact with our community of expert engineers and judges.
