Widget Installation

Once you have an account you will need Register your widget so you can generate a domain specific AppID - this just takes a moment. Click to start the process, the only information we require is the domain where you are going to host the Widget, and your user account.

To register your Widget you will need to enter the full domain for your site eg: www.yoursitename.com once you have done so, you will be able to generate the App Token and Widget Code. You will then use the Widget code to register your Widget from your site, and the Widget API to control it.

If you look at the example to your right you will find a section of the code in the Body of the example where there is an appId with value. You can replace this code with your AppID code if you want to host and experiment with this example from your own domain.
