Most EverWeb Discussion Forum visitors will already know Roddy McKay whose been a fantastic provider of third party widgets for EverWeb since 2013. Roddy’s EverWebCodeBox website has been a great source of widgets that extend EverWeb’s capabilities.
Roddy’s now created a completely new website, “EverWeb Widgets“, which has just launched with over 200 new widgets designed for EverWeb 2.0 and higher.
The new widgets take advantage of EverWeb’s updated widget API so offering a more feature rich experience than those in the EverWebCodeBox. The widgets are organised in to 20 categories making it easy to find what you want quickly. A website Search button is included to quickly locate widgets and the ‘Info’ menu is a useful resource on all aspects of the new widget packs.
Different widget categories cater for different design needs. The ‘Elements’ widget pack, for example, contains twelve widgets to create tables, lists, scroll to top buttons, text wrapped images, social media buttons and more. More advanced EverWeb users may be interested in widget packs such as the ‘Responsive’ pack which gives you the tools needed to build a responsive design website within EverWeb. The new ‘Responsive’ widgets supersede the ‘Flex’ system found in the EverWebCodeBox and are much easier to set up and use than before. Information detailing how to create a Responsive style website are included as well as some caveats and limitations of this approach.
The new widgets have also taken advantage of today’s web design trends with a new ‘Hero’ widgets category, Podcast widgets, Image Sliders, widgets for mobile and more. The widget packs also take advantage of EverWeb’s Full Width feature and the updates to the EverWeb widget API. All widgets in the ‘EverWeb Widgets’ website are fully described and include a demo so you can see how each widget works in real world situations. Widgets can only be purchased in packs and not individually. The number of widgets per pack will also vary depending on the widget category.
The new third party ‘EverWeb Widgets’ offer a great resource for any EverWeb user who has specific website needs, or requirements, that go beyond what is in the product itself. There are bound to be more widgets available in the future. You can stay up to date with any future widget pack releases from Roddy via the EverWeb Discussion Forum or directly from his website.
