Prebuilt connectors vs custom using api connector plugin

Hi,

I’m about to start working on some integrations for a b2b app.

CRMs, accounting, project management and productivity type apps.

I’m coming across a lot of apps with pre-built connections, similar to zapier.

Does anyone have thoughts or experience using these over building out my own integrations using the api connector plugin?

Thanks
Robbie

Hey Robbie,

Yeah definitely, the advantages of pre-built connections are that you will save time (by not building them yourself) and that they already have been used quite a lot, so no bugs (well, probably less bugs :grinning: ). A disadvantage can be that if you have a specific requirement, it might not be covered by the pre-built connections.

Hope this helps,

Thanks for the response on this.

Is there any pre-built connection apps you have worked with and recommend?

I’m looking at paragon and prismatic at the moment.

Thanks
Robbie
