Flex Plugin

Library to help building Twilio Flex Plugins.

Installation

npm install flex-plugin

Usage

import { loadPlugin, FlexPlugin } from 'flex-plugin';
 
class MyPlugin extends FlexPlugin {
  pluginName = 'MyPlugin';
 
  init(flex, manager) {
    // set up your flex
    flex.TaskCanvas.Content.add(<p>Hello</p>);
  }

loadPlugin(MyPlugin);

Visit Twilio Docs for a tutorial on creating your first plugin.

Libraries

Loading External JS/CSS Files

To load external JS/CSS files into your plugin, we provide two helper methods: loadJS and loadCSS. Use them by calling these methods at the start of plugin initialization.

import { FlexPlugin, loadJS, loadCSS } from 'flex-plugin';
 
class MyPlugin extends FlexPlugin {
  pluginName = 'MyPlugin';
 
  init(flex, manager) {
    loadJS('http://mysite.com/files/flex.js');
    loadCSS(
      'http://mysite.com/files/flex.css',
      'http://mysite.com/files/flex-2.css',
    );
 
    // set up everything else
  }
}

The CSS/JS files must be accessible by Twilio's proxy servers. Local files on your desktop are likely inaccessible via these methods, but your stylesheet may be uploaded to Twilio Assets for use here.

External Dependencies

The following NPM packages are defined as external dependencies:

react
react-dom
redux
react-redux

When you build your plugin, these dependencies will not be included in your bundle. Instead, Flex UI will provide them as global for your plugin to use.

To ensure you are using the same version that Flex UI is exposing, leave the version of the React that is specified in your package.json. See React Versions to see the currently supported version.

React Versions

We currently support the following versions:

react          16.5.2
react-dom      16.5.2
redux          3.7.2
react-redux    5.1.0
