Prebid.js Module Overview

The core of Prebid.js contains only the foundational code needed for header bidding. Any functionality that could be considered an add-on or that covers a special case is being moved out into modules. Examples of this kind of code include:

  • Bidder adapters
  • Special auction logic
  • Ad server API integrations
  • Any other extensible functionality

This section of the site contains user-submitted module documentation. We’re hoping that it will grow over time.

To see all of the modules that are available, see the modules folder in the repo.

If you are looking for bidder adapter parameters, see Bidders’ Params.
