I there an overview somewhere of available add ons for ExpressionEngine 5? Devot:ee doesn't seem to go further than EE4. But I see lost of them on the individual sites of developers.

  • I really would appreciate an up-to-date-overview of EE5-add-ons. Indeed devot-ee does not have them all, although it's still a good starting point. EEHarbor also is an important hub.

As a general rule of thumb: if it’s compatible with EE4, it’s compatible with EE5, too.

The jump from 4.3 to 5.0 was necessary to facilitate the change in license model, not because of breaking changes in EE’s APIs.

    Yes, the EE4 add-ons are totally compatible with EE5. Tested many, all is ok.

  • @mcwhitey Low is 100% correct. There is no change in EE's API and other features. So, all plugins of EE4 are almost compatible with EE5. But it is advisable to update current EE version to EE5 to facilitate upcoming great features. Commented Dec 19, 2018 at 6:11
  • That's true (EE5 can use EE4 addons) except for those from eeHarbor who for some reason require you to update the addons to work with EE5... more here eeharbor.com/blog/add-ons-for-expressionengine-5 Commented Dec 19, 2018 at 14:55
