Build a Cloudflare App

Description

What is a Cloudflare app?

At its core a Cloudflare app is set of JavaScript and/or CSS files which run on a website, and an install.json file which instructs tools like Cloudflare Apps how to use those files.

For example, all of these projects are installable with Cloudflare as “apps”:

-Back To Top Button
-Google Analytics
-Chatra

The value of a Cloudflare app

Only a tiny portion of the millions of website owners out there will ever visit GitHub or Hacker News. Cloudflare Apps makes it easy for anyone with a website to find and use your tool.

Making your tool installable with Cloudflare comes with tremendous benefits:

-Allow potential customers to Live Preview your tool on their site without installing a thing.
-Give your customers options with a simple configuration UI for customizing your app.
-Showcase your app to over 7 million Cloudflare customers.
-Demo your app on any website in seconds with customizable links to live previews.
-Seamlessly deliver new releases and updates to your app’s customers.

Teams which build an app for Cloudflare Apps will qualify for our prizes. The top 2 teams will win prizes.

Projects solving this challenge

Align: Keeping Everyone on the Same Page

The goal of this application is to make a positive impact in the lives of our users by combining document e-signature capabilities with live, real time communication with the document’s author. Often we are wading through pages of extremely technical documentation at some of the most important times in our lives - home ownership, medical procedures, legal affairs, employment contracts. We hope to help alleviate at least a small part of the stress that can come with these events.
