Library Release 9 - January 2021 (Pack & Ship, Events, API Connectors and more)

We’re excited to announce the 9th release of the Tulip Library!

The Library is a set of apps that can be added to your account and used out of the box. Each app comes with an installation guide, and a video describing how the app works and what it can be used for.

If there’s an app in this list that you’d like, reach out to Sarah (sarah@tulip.co) or contact us and we’ll get it added to your account and the documentation sent to you.

Hello there :wave:

Some food for though : I found it a bit difficult to find apps linked to API connectors in the library. I believe they all have “Unit Test” in their names so I can search app called “Unit Test” but it would be great to have a dedicated category for example.
