The Tapslash Developer Hub

Welcome to the Tapslash developer hub. Here you'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with the SDK(s) as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck slong the way. Let's jump right in!

Get Started    

Welcome

The Tapslash Platform lets you natively embed your favorite personal expression tools directly into your app from GIFs & Stickers, to Music, Videos, Social Content, & more.

Start by Creating an App

Creating an App on the platform refers to a toolbar and the services you choose to include in it. An App acts as a container from which you can pick and choose any number of Services from our service store. Services can be individually chosen, edited, and formatted to best fit your app.

Upon creating an App you will be assigned credentials which you can use to interact with your App's services from an API level.



Select your Services

We’ve made it super simple to both embed, and build your own Tapslash services. Choose from over 50 Integrations, and even add Local services like Photos, Location Sharing, Contacts, & more. Once you've created your App, on the main Dashboard, tap Services from the left-hand sidebar to begin adding your integrations.

Browse or search the service store and simply tap Add Service to add the service to your toolbar. Once you've added a few services, they will appear in order in the table above the full list. Here you can reorder, edit, or delete services from your toolbar. As changes are made, they will be reflected in your app in real-time.




Drop the SDK into your app

After creating your App on the Admin Panel, embed the toolbar you've created by simply dropping in the mobile SDK(s) directly into your app. The iOS SDK can be installed into your application via CocoaPods or by directly importing the source code files. The Android SDK can be installed into your application via Gradle or by directly importing the source code files.


The SDKs:

  • Are fully cross-platform (iOS, Android, Web)
  • Scale as your app user base does
  • Handle all API rate limits
  • Allow for API, Local, and Content Services
  • Sync directly with changes made on the Admin Panel in real-time

The Tapslash SDKs were built to help your users better express themselves in conversational spaces. Adding these expressive tools beyond just text helps to increase retention and engagement by folds. We want you to focus on your core business and your users, let us handle the rest.

Get started by Installing the SDKs below:



Integrate the Rich Content Parser

We’ve built a parser for every service, so that all your content appears in a rich, interactive form. Play videos directly in the chat, listen to music, share Hi-res images, links, locations, & more. If you've already built a parser within your app, it's easy to opt out. Learn more about our Parsers for iOS and Android below:



Create your own Services

Once you've mastered building your app toolbar, you can begin creating your own services. Within the Admin Panel, creating a service for your own content (Images, GIFs, Stickers) is simple. With no code at all, you can build branded content packs using our drag-and-drop system. Add categories, tags, and search capabilities to your service, making it easy for users to find hilarious and expressive Stickers & GIFs.

If you want your product to exist on the Platform as a service as well, you can create an external API service allowing other Apps to embed your service on their toolbars. We also enable you to use your own custom build native/local services inside the bar.
