Many users love the Appodeal plugin. Having access to many ad providers in one place, getting high fill rates from the best advertisers is an awesome thing. However; that comes at a price. The plugin is largeā€¦ It has to include the SDKs for every provider in the plugin.

Today we are announcing a new beta version of the plugin. This new version is modular. After you include the base plugin in your build.settings, you then include the adapters for the various ad types that are important to you in your build.settings allowing you to customize your Appodeal experience. Of course you can use every ad type but doing so will have the same size requirements as the legacy Appodeal plugin.

To use this new plugin, you would alter your build.settings to something like:

settings =

    plugins =
    
        -- Base
        ['plugin.appodeal.base'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.AmazonAds'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.GoogleAdMob'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.TwitterMoPub'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.StartApp'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,

        -- Banner
        ['plugin.appodeal.AppLovin'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.FacebookAudience'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.Flurry'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.InMobi'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.MyTarget'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.MillenialMedia'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.Yandex'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,

        -- Interstitial
        ['plugin.appodeal.AdColony'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.AppLovin'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.Chartboost'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.FacebookAudience'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.Flurry'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.InMobi'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.IronSource'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.Mobvista'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.MyTarget'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.StartApp'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.MillenialMedia'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.Ogury'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,

        -- Rewarded Video
        ['plugin.appodeal.AdColony'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.AppLovin'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.Chartboost'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.FacebookAudience'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.Flurry'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.InMobi'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.IronSource'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.Mobvista'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.MyTarget'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.StartApp'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.Unity'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.Vungle'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
        ['plugin.appodeal.Tapjoy'] =  publisherId = 'com.coronalabs' ,
    },
}

The example above includes all the entries you can use. If you want a lighter footprint, simply exclude the ad types you don’t need.

The legacy Appodeal plugin will stay in place for now, but eventually this model will become the primary use of the plugin. We will manage a two-plugin model going forward, a “release” model and a “beta” model. For now, the legacy plugin is the “release” version and modular version is the “beta” version.

We encourage people to try the modular version and provide us feedback on the plugin.
