What is a Service?

A service is any object that is loaded via $modx->getService. It can be a custom class provided by the user, or by MODX itself.

Once an object is loaded with getService, it is accessible via $modx->(servicename). So, for example:

$modx->getService('twitter','myTwitter','/path/to/twitter/model/',array(  
  'api_key' => 3212423,
));  
$modx->twitter->tweet('Success!');
