SDK reference

We distinguish and expose 3 kinds of APIs : engagement, visual and technical. You are very much encouraged to combine these APIs together in order to take advantage of the full potential of the SDK.


Looking for some real code examples ? Feel free to browse this repository containing a collection of complete homemade plugins 🧩


You can use these APIs to add custom actions within the Room. They are good starting points for many workflow or Call to actions.

Modal - Display Modals with custom HTML content

Chat - Interact with the chat by sending and intercepting messages

Stage.Buttons.registerStageButton - Add a button alongside Room actions

Stage.Buttons.registerShareButton - Add an entry in the Share menu


These APIs are meant to have a direct visual effect in the room and are designed to help you provide feedback and visual content to the users.

Streams - Create camera effects and custom HTML streams

Chat - Interact with chat by sending and intercepting messages

Theme - Customize the Room appearance

Modal - Display Modals with custom HTML content

NotificationCenter - Display custom HTML as notifications


The Visual APIs often leverage our template system. We recommend you to use our UI Kit to build your HTML templates.


These APIs are meant to help you leverage Livestorm data or technical blocks such as Websockets.
They are essential building blocks of plugins APIs interactions.

Settings - Register settings panel in Livestorm dashboard

PubSub - Dispatch events to other participants
