Changing the way commerce is built is no easy undertaking. Therefore, we are incredibly excited about our Medusa community, their support, and their amazing contributions that make it easier for others to move to a more modular way of building commerce.
This article is part of an ongoing series that periodically highlights community plugins, storefront starters, quotes, and more. Join our community of over 5,000 developers on Discord to stay updated with all community-related news and discussions. You can also visit our Plugin Library to browse many community contributions.
Govind Diwakar has created a Strapi monorepository with all the components necessary for you to set up and use Strapi with Medusa. Within this monorepository, you’ll find a Strapi project, a Medusa plugin for Strapi, a Strapi plugin for Medusa, and other components that will make your integration between Medusa and Strapi successful.
By integrating Strapi and Medusa, you can utilize rich CMS features that Strapi provides while using Medusa’s powerful commerce features.
Check out the monorepository for more details about the project and how to set it up.
Lacey Pevey created a plugin that allows you to use AWS Simple Email Service (SES) as a notification provider in your Medusa backend.

Check out the Medusa SES Plugin for more details about its features and how to install it.
We also got a much-requested SvelteKit client that lets you interact with your Medusa backend from a SvelteKit storefront. With this client, you can easily build a SvelteKit storefront or admin for your Medusa backend.
