Ryan Masuga had the idea for devot:ee in September 2008. At the time, the only place to get extensive ExpressionEngine add-on related information was in the ExpressionEngine forums. There weren’t any objective, organized, third-party sites to take it any further. Ryan took his meticulously organized collection of EE add-ons culled from various corners of the web and put together the initial devot:ee catalog.
The site officially launched on May 1, 2009 with around 300 add-ons in the catalog. The add-on store was added a year later. devot:ee is now the most visited third-party site for the ExpressionEngine platform.
