We continue developing our cloud-based service Elfsight Apps. Now our team is pleased to present you an absolutely new widget editor! It will improve plugin’s customization process and make the adjustment much clearer.
The editor that gained an update plays a key role in creating plugins. For now, the ability to edit and save settings in any of our plugins became a lot easier. Be sure that you can complete setup process in a short period of time.
Why We Created New EditorAs we are going to release more products for our service, our goal is to give the best user experience in your Elfsight admin panel. Thus, the first step was to create the universal widget editor. We listed these requirements for such editor:
- It should be super clean and easy-to-use
- Fit any of our existing and future products
- User should like it at first sight
The new editor is already available at Elfsight AppsConcerning the overall user interface, we divided the editor into 2 main working areas: settings area and live preview of how your widget looks at the moment. But that’s not all changes! Read more about what was improved below.
What’s New in Editor 2.0For now, when you press “Create Widget” or “Manage” our widget editor opens at a full window size. Thus, it will be more comfortable to operate with all controls and parameters. Settings area is identical in every widget and it contains four major tabs:
- Source The main tab that you will use, whether you like it or not. Just kidding! And yet you will definitely use this tab to display what you want in the chosen widget.
- Layout It’s a set of parameters that let you set up the overall appearance of the widget. Change sizes, tune up animation effects or manage UI elements – you can do all of this and even more!
- Colors Change colors of various design elements to create a unique widget on your website.
- Other Depending on the chosen widget, here you will find settings that relate specifically to it. Let’s say these are “Super Moves” that will add more coolness or functionality… Or all at once.
