It’s been way too long coming but I am finally happy to announce the release of dashEE 2.0 – the control panel dashboard framework for EE CMS.
There’s a new ExpressionEngine (EE) add-on type in town and it’s name is Widget! We’re all familiar with the standard EE add-ons: modules, fieldtypes, accessories, extensions and plug-ins. But did you know there was an additional type that allowed you to customize the control panel homepage with your own content and functionality? It’s called a widget and in this post I’ll review how you can create your own widgets that work with the dashEE module to assemble your own custom EE control panel dashboard.
Today I’m excited to announce the release of a new EE module called dashEE. dashEE is a completely customizable control panel dashboard alternative that gives developers the ability to create custom widgets either as stand alone add-ons or as part of their existing custom modules. Check out the Github repo for more details.
I understand that I might be coming a little late to this party, but I thought it deserved a post anyway. A little background first, up until about a week ago I had a virtual private server (VPS) with HostMySite.com (HMS). I had been a customer of theirs for about 2 years and was pleased with the service and offerings. But recently I wanted to try some new things that required an updated version of PHP. HMS said I couldn’t get the newer version of PHP without upgrading my account and changing control panels over to CPanel. Needless to say I was saddened by this news so I started shopping around.
E-mail marketing apps are a dime a dozen now a days. Each one claims it has better delivery rates than the other, more pre-designed HTML templates than the other and better support. However, I found an e-mail marketing app a while back that has just differentiated itself from the rest of the pack completely. The program is called Campaign Monitor (CM) and it’s not just your typical e-mail marketing app. CM has been built with designers and developers in mind. You can completely rebrand this hosted application to make it look and act like your own application and then resell it to your customers for additional revenue… totally cool!
