 I have had to write many integrations with Third-Party APIs for WordPress.
 I would love to see WordPress introduce a more formal way to integrate
 with various APIs.

 Take for example Slack, many plugins and themes have written custom code
 to integrate Slack messages, but the end call to the api is typically the
 same using `wp_remote_post()`. Currently I have seen some sites with 5
 different plugins all connecting to Slack's API. I would love to see the

 A page on WordPress.org (similar to plugins, blocks, etc) where I choose
 what app/services I want connected to my WordPress install. Theme/Plugin
 Authors could use these connections instead of writing their own. This can
 help with managing security and performance with Third-Party APIs.

 With multiple apps connected to my WordPress install, in the future we can
 have workflows, similar to Zapier, IFTTT, etc. Many of these integrations
 are for WordPress Plugins such as Gravity Forms or WooCommerce. If I want
 to create workflows with those tools and other services, it would be nice
 if it can be done all within WordPress.
