The Jankbot Module Repository
Jankbot modules all in one place
We have compiled a collection of Jankbot modules all into one repository, and are accepting modules built by the community into the repository. Find modules, submit your own, report bugs, request module features and get updates all from one place.
Module API 2.0
The Jankbot module API has been redesigned from the ground up to provide a simpler, yet comprehensive way for developers to add functionality to Jankbot.
As developers ourselves, we know how important it is for documentation to be simple and clear. The Jankbot Github wiki is full of information on developing modules for Jankbot. Once you have finished your custom module, you can submit a pull request to the Jankbot Modules Repo to add it to the official module repository.
