I was wondering is their a tentative list of monetization plugins that are going to be opened source. If none that is fine, just want to know if I should bother making a native plugin or wait for the open source plugin then I can make the change to.

I don't know what our plans are there.

 

Perhaps you should reach out to us privately with what you want to do or have done...

Me too...i was thinking about AdMob plugin.

I'm still waiting for the long time announced "revenue-share based" AdMob plugin (2017, perhaps?).

In this new scenario, should I wait or should I try by myself?

 

Thank you!

o_O. I think you should try by yourself. I don't think Open Source would allow you to create a revenue share plugin for Corona. My asks are much more simple:

 

1. Admob (paid) would be nice to fully implement the multiple unitIds. I forget but it is partially implemented. You can ask for a load of a unitId and show a unitid, but you can't see if it is loaded.

 

2. Appodeal. The native appodeal allows you to send crash reports to Appodeal the one we have does not. There is also a bunch of useful property on the appodeal native that we don't have.

 

3. Startapp. The new startapp allows you to reward users with cryptocurrency for rewarded video ads. I think it is a gimmick that will die but I'll try anything especially since they are providing a sign-up bonus.

 

Other plugins:

4. Flurry plugin on my native apps, I use flurry configuration and notification services. I can't do that on Corona.

5. AppsFlyer doesn't correctly interpret the sandbox flag on iOS.

@egruttner, unfortunately, we have a technical issue that we can't solve on the revenue share version of AdMob. We likely cannot do this. 

 

@agramonte, I'm not sure I've seen requests for any of these items. Those don't look terribly difficult to implement (well the first two at least). I don't know about what's involved with adding the cryptocurrency support, but I also don't know what APIs would need to be changed. Seems to be a reward is a reward and it's just a value.

 

Flurry's other services sounds like some work, and perhaps it would make sense for those to be new plugins. I don't see why someone in the community could build a FlurryConfiguration or a FlurryNotifications plugin.
 

We probably should look into the AppFlyer thing. That sounds like a bug. Maybe file that as an issue on GitHub.
