BadgeOS is designed to be a true operating system for turning any WordPress site into an engagement management application. It is built with expandability in mind to allow virtually anything to trigger and recognize achievement. This Developer Resources area of the site provides links to documentation, APIs and guides to extending BadgeOS and integrating it with other plugins and systems.

The system can be extended through BadgeOS “Add-Ons”, plugins which hook into the core BadgeOS system and allow developers to customize the user experience, or BadgeOS-compatible plugins, which integrate BadgeOS functions. Our team continues to develop a range of Add-ons to BadgeOS that enhance core functionality with specialized functions, and we encourage others who are creating Add-ons to share them with the community as well.

News! The now features a range of BadgeOS Add-ons and BadgeOS-compatible plugins that have been developed for use by the community. Submit your plugin today so it can be featured on the site and receive the widespread attention it deserves. Featured Add-ons will also be included in the “Add-On” menu from within the BadgeOS plugin itself, reaching thousands of users.
