​​​​​​​​Developer Studio Plugins

Plugins are small JavaScript files you can add to your project that provide a ready source of integration into a specific chipset, module, or OEM solution. The plugins generate the code necessary to implement your project onto the platform of your choice. Do you want to learn how to create and install plugins? Download Bluetooth Developer Studio and reference the included documentation.

Are you a chip, module, or OEM supplier? You can create plugins that generate server-side stub code for your solution, or generate client-side stub code for a specific mobile platform—the flexibility is in your hands.

If you’d like your plugin to be included in this list, please contact us at and we will get your plugin posted.
