NxtPlugins.com (beta)
 3779904130149819589

Summary
NxtPlugins.com is a Plugin Store on the Nxt Marketplace. The Plugins can be installed in the Nxt Wallet or are Tools to simplify the usage of Nxt. Everyone can create a Plugin and submit it to NxtPlugins.com for sale. To enhance security of the User, we will create a procedure of file signatures, so the Plugins source code and the security are open to be verified by multiple sources. At first we will verify plugins ourselves. Until we have found a way to offer security for submitted Plugins. Any Plugin can be rated by the purchaser and a public Feedback can be made on the Blockchain, for everyone to review. The User System is designed with Nxt Tokens, no email, just a Nxt Account is required.

Nxt Marketplace
Every Plugin or Plugin development group will have an own Marketplace Account, where the Plugins can be found. NxtPlugins.com handles the Marketplace and delivers the Plugin quickly, additionally provides verification information on the download page.

Security
Each Plugin zip file receives a sha256 hash after submitting it to NxtPlugins.com. Before it can be listed on the Blockchain for sale, the developer uses this hash as data to create a Nxt Token. Both, the sha256 and the Token will be displayed public for everyone to verify. Every other user or developer who has reviewed this Plugin, can create a Token for the sha256 hash of the Plugin with his Nxt Account and sign the Plugin.
This allows multiple user and developer to sign Plugin files or Report them in case they agree with the source code or have found insecurities.
For now, we will not allow any Plugins that make requests outside of the localhost.

Feedback and discussions about Plugins are very appreciated. NxtPlugins aims to grow together with Nxt, if you have ideas, want to develop a Plugin or have any other ideas, feel free to post them or contact me.

The platform is now in Beta, this means that you can expect small bugs here and there. Please report them if you find them, so we can iron those bugs out before we launch. Also, some things might change before the launch and it is possible that we are going to add some functionality.

To run Plugins in your Nxt Wallet, please use a 1.5x Nxt Version

The numers are an asset ID though. Which is the NXT address in order to find NxtPlugins.com over the Marketplace?

There will be several selling accounts in the future. You will find the Seller Nxt Account on the Details page of the Plugin.

Hi, like your project. Are there any news you would like to share?

Good that you ask, a lot of things happening in the background. I already got the first 3 Plugins submitted, another 2 are close to finish. I was talking to a designer to help me making the page more beatiful but sadly he could not satisfy my needs, which has delayed the design question for around two weeks now. Luckily he was not the only designer I have contacted and I am talking with another person and it looks very promising for now. I think we will get a very comfortable and good looking Platform for Plugins this way, more updates regarding this in the following week(s).

I have 'recruited' around 4 coders to make some further plugins (because the coders and myself are full of ideas :D ) and we already see that there is a lot of supply, demand and interest in going further with Plugins.

In the end, I think we will need to wait for the first 1.5 stable release before going out of beta mode and releasing the finished platform, I am a bit careful because it might happen that some details change for Plugins (as Holger is working hard to make Plugins as secure as possible) and this might change some minor details in how to handle them on NxtPlugins.com.

As you can see on NxtPlugins for now, the basics are set up. From now on, what needs to be done is making it as easy and convenient for the user and Plugin developer/publisher while keeping it as secure and transparent as possible.

Hi, I have a question for ya; How do you handle updates of the plugins? Is it possible to submit a new version to nxtplugins.com and allow previous customers to download the new plugin for free?
Check out the NxtLib, the .NET Framework API for the Nxt platform.

yes, thats the plan. While the developer must have in mind that the signatures will just be valid for the previous uploaded version.

Makes sense, thanx.

Btw, I did submit a dividend plugin yesterday, what's the process going forward?

Nice that you made it. I will review the plugin. Currently I have planned to release all the submitted plugins together with the release, so we already have a bunch of plugins to offer for the user. (The current platform is to show how the idea works)

I have been talking to the new designer today and he is going to send me a proposal soon, I hope it will be within the budget of the Shares I have sold so far. But it will come with some more possibilities, more flexibility and nicer than the current one for sure. And he really did like the idea and the concept aswell.
If that takes too long, I will start to offer the submitted plugins earlier already, but I would not really like to break the flow of the platform too much with changing the overall concept (from beta to release). Better to start correctly so I will see what his offer will be and I hope everything will work out nice and quick.

I have recieved a few messages asking me about when the dividend plugin will be available, some are very eager to get it :)

Hello,

Nice project. Here are a few questions:

- Do you have a version running on testnet?
- At the moment, do you register people or can people register themselves?
- What´s the plan (if any) to prevent copy?
- How much do you plan on 'keeping' for a plugin sold let´s say 100 NXT ?
- What do people get once they buy a plugin? A link to the zip to download?
- Why not make this plugin market as plugin itself! ?
- Is the rating system using polls ?

Keep it up, very nice project.

Hello chevdor, thank you for your questions.
There have been dozen of request regarding the platform of nxtplugins so far. I am currently working on implementing a majority of those. From supporting multiple wallets (official Nxt, supernet, jay, maybe mofo?), over signature system etc.

Do you have a version running on testnet?
The new version is not online yet. Maybe I will set it up to run on testnet for some beta days but I do not think so.

At the moment, do you register people or can people register themselves?
People are able to register themselves. In the current platform it is supported in the next version it will be easier. (My first idea was to make it a summary of what you have purchased in the client. This has changed with the new version)

What´s the plan (if any) to prevent copy?
This cannot be prevented. Well, to some degree it can. The Wallet itself is MIT license and all the code from the plugin can be seen. If you use any other API than the one of Nxt, nobody can see what happens on your server to get this data.

How much do you plan on 'keeping' for a plugin sold let´s say 100 NXT ?
Nothing. Well, it is planned that you can create an Asset for your Plugin and sell your future profit. So if you have a Plugin sold for 100 NXT, you can sell me 10% of your Plugin's Asset and I will get 10 NXT of those. Anybody could purchase Asset Shares.

What do people get once they buy a plugin? A link to the zip to download?
Yes. And notifications when the Developer updates his/her Plugin.

Why not make this plugin market as plugin itself! ?
Yes, planned for the future. But first I want to publish some other Plugins I have in the pipeline. If somebody can help me with this, I would pay in NXT/BTC ;)

Is the rating system using polls ?
No, I think if you need to pay 1 NXT for a rate, you rather not rate. But we want ratings :)
Sure, you would have to have the Plugin purchased before rating.

Hi Tosch110,

Thanks for taking the time to answer all those questions.
I have tried registering with no success.

As far as I got, I need to use a token. It was not clear what the content should be though:
   Data http://nxtplugins.com
or
   http://nxtplugins.com

I tried both.

Regarding the plugin you´d need, let me know what your thoughts are. I am on Slack, same nick.

Finally, for the rating, let me give you my 3 cents (so proud of this one :) )
I get your point although I see the need to pay (1 NXT = 3 cents) as a better insurance to have less spam rating.

I still stay with no fee for rating. I dont think 'scam rating' is a problem because you need to have the Item purchased (what could be counted as the rating "fee" in this case) before rating.

I will contact you on slack, thanks!

I have written an update on the AE thread: https://nxtforum.org/asset-exchange-general/nxtplugins/msg186859/#msg186859

Additionally I have added that as developer you can see now statistics of your Plugin Page visits. Click on Store to see them.
