Quip Apps

The Quip Apps platform enables developers to extend the Quip document canvas with interactive, custom components. The goal of the platform is to expand the scope and capabilities of Quip's living documents.

The platform is currently in beta.

Quick Overview

npm install -g create-quip-app

create-quip-app my-app

create-quip-app my-app will create a directory called my-app inside the current folder. Inside that directory, it will generate the initial project structure and install the transitive dependencies:

├── package.json
├── node_modules
├── webpack.config.js
├── app
│   └── manifest.json
└── src
    └── App.less
    └── App.jsx
    └── root.jsx

Getting Started

Follow the Getting Started Guide to start creating your own live app.


During the beta period, only developers of your app will be able to insert the app. To add a developer, go to the Quip Dev Portal. To insert the live app in a Quip document, type @ followed by the app name.

Others can view and interact with the app, but they won't be able to create new instances of it yet.


You can’t perform that action at this time.
