The OutSystems Forge has hundreds of components for developers to reuse and customize.
Components can be a simple library to perform string manipulation, user interface blocks to display maps or charts, connectors to integrate with external systems like SAP or Microsoft Exchange, or to integrate with cloud services such as Box, LinkedIn, or Twitter.
To install a component in your environment, do the following:
