Plugins & Software for Daylite 6

Custom Plugins

Plugins are software programs written to use the Daylite Client SDK, so they run from within Daylite and interact with it. Many useful functions are available in commercial plugins. We at Putah Creek Development recommend, sell and integrate these in your environment.

Daylite Cloud has opened a different kind of software possibility. Using the Daylite Cloud API, custom apps interact directly with the Daylite Cloud Server with the same security as Daylite itself. These apps may run on macOS or iOS (iPhone or iPad). This new API makes most of the main Daylite objects available to apps, though a few remain to be added.

We also develop fully custom plugins just for our clients. Although these necessarily cost more than other options on account of the size of the development and the limited audience, the exact fit often brings enough productivity gain to justify it.

Between commercial and fully custom plugins in cost are semi-custom plugins that adapt features we have already developed into an overall package that still serves your exact needs like a fully custom plugin.

Putah Creek Development plugins are licensed by user or by site, depending on their nature and purpose.
