Create a 'Code' Component

Let’s create your paid code access component and connect it to your private repository. In the repository editor, click ‘Add item‘ and select the ‘Code‘ component type. You’ll need to install our Github app on your private repository, so we can clone your code to our servers. Users who purchase this item, will get a unique read-only token to access your private repository with git, npm or pip.

Set a Price

Choose your price and billing model:

Subscriptions are great for providing ongoing support or maintenance. You can create both annual and monthly subscriptions with different pricing.

Update Your README.MD on Github

The best place to promote your paid components is on your README.MD file. Use our badge/banner to place a link to your xs:code repository page. This will help notify your users about the items you are offering. You can also use social media, blogs and developer community websites to promote your project.
