Get started with partner add-ons

This feature is in BETA.

At Netlify, we’re building an add-on marketplace to make it easier to connect third-party APIs and other microservices to your Jamstack projects on Netlify. The feature is currently in the beta stage, giving customers early access to add-ons as new partners come on board.

In this doc, you can find out how to use partner add-ons or even make one of your own.


Before developing a Netlify add-on, consider creating a Build Plugin for your use case instead. Build Plugins are a newer and more streamlined way to integrate with Netlify. They’re faster to develop, and users can install them directly from the Netlify UI.

# Work with add-ons

At this stage, working with partner add-ons requires the Netlify CLI. Refer to the docs for installing Netlify CLI, logging in, and linking local project directories with sites on Netlify.

# Install an add-on

To install an add-on, run the following Netlify CLI command at the base of the local project directory linked to your Netlify site:

netlify addons:create <name>

Replace <name> with the name of the add-on service you want to install, listed as the Installation name in the Add-on providers section below. If the add-on requires additional parameters for setup, you will be prompted for them during installation.

# Add-on providers

Netlify is working with the following selected partners to provide add-ons during beta development. We will add more as development continues.

# FaunaDB

FaunaDB is a serverless cloud database that offers fast global access to data using modern APIs, like GraphQL, without sacrificing data consistency. Ubiquitous, flexible, and secure, FaunaDB helps modern developers build applications fearlessly. It is an ideal companion for your web applications hosted by Netlify, an excellent choice for web site hosting and development.

Relational NoSQL Database as a Service for your Jamstack projects.

# Very Good Security

This add-on provides data security for your forms that ensures no sensitive data ever touches Netlify servers. Inherit instant Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance and protect personally identifiable information (PII). Remove much of your data liability while drastically reducing your risk exposure and compliance responsibility.

# Your awesome service

If you have a service you would like to offer as a Netlify add-on, we encourage you to review the API documentation and contact for more information.
