Hi, can you please extend rules to work with app "Such & Such"?

Recommended Posts

I get this question a lot. But it doesn't quite work that way. Apps implement a rules extension on their own. Rules doesn't extend them.

The rules extension is what tells Rules how to use any available events, conditions, and actions available for a particular app, and is a component that gets packaged with the app itself.

I dont maintain or distribute the "such and such" app so I dont have a way to include that extension myself. But I've been pretty open in my offer to help other app authors add a custom rules extension to their apps if they need help with that.

They just need to come to me with an idea of what events, conditions, or actions they want to add and provide me with a dev copy of their app and I will happily help them get a baseline extension up and running for them to include in a future release.

In the early days of rules, I actively pursued app authors on my own to offer my service of creating a rules extension for their app for them while considering what ECA's would be a good fit, and aftwr I would build it on goodwill and send it to them, some would not even include it since they didnt really understand the benefits. So I built extensions that never even got rolled into the other app by the app author.

I'm too busy for that these days. I am happy to help, but only on specfic request and in cooperation with the app author themselves.
