Salesforce has introduced a marketplace of pre-integrated app component services and tools named Heroku Elements to help developers build engaging customer-facing applications.
The new marketplace is designed to simplify the task of researching and finding the specific elements to build apps, by enabling developers to find, evaluate, and utilise modern services, components and tools for app development.
Salesforce said that Heroku Elements feature three new categories of app components that are built by Heroku and open source developers, and partners.
The new app component categories include add-ons or tools and services that are customised for developing, extending, and operating apps that are pre-integrated into Heroku.
The add-ons will facilitate developers to select elements that fit best with their app’s specific needs.
The company has also introduced Heroku Buttons that are third-party components, libraries, and pattern apps designed to allow users to deploy with a single click.
The Heroku Elements marketplace will showcase new and trending Heroku Buttons that will enable developers to start building apps quickly.
With Buildpacks, developers will be able to easily customise the build process in their preferred framework, language, and community.
Heroku Elements also helps developers to easily search for a broad ecosystem of trusted tools, components and services and discover the elements needed to develop better apps faster.
Heroku VP of Product Adam Gross said: "Heroku Elements represents some of the most interesting and innovative advancements happening across the developer ecosystem.
"Companies of all sizes can now easily access the creativity and functionality of application components, commercial services and open source tools – all in one place, and with a single click."
