New WordPress Plugin: Widgets Avalanche for Ecwid

For the past few weeks I have been working on a plugin to integrate the new Ecwid API with WordPress. It’s called Widgets Avalanche for Ecwid:

This plugin does two things:

  • Gives you a UI for connecting your store to your WordPress install (AKA getting an authentication token).
  • Gives you a bunch of widgets for outputting your Ecwid products and categories in interesting ways.

Right now, it ships with three different widgets:

  • A popup.
  • A slider.
  • An accordion.

The plugin is very simple from an admin and visitor perspective, but it is packed with hooked and pluggable functions, making it 100% customizable from a developer perspective.

I think Ecwid is a phenomenal e-commerce platform and it’s my first choice when clients ask me about creating an online store. But until now, there have been very few options when it comes to showcasing your products beyond the Ecwid defaults.
