The CMS platform WordPress is one of the most popular ones to build your homepage on the web. We thought it might be suitable to make it easier to embed a Dynamaker project direct on a WordPress homepage. Therefore we have just launched a plugin of our own to WordPress!
Most online applications work together with other systems and solutions to help users design and customize products online. Therefore they almost always have to be connected to a homepage, e-commerce, ERP, customer portals and similar to do their intended work.
As a fast and standardize way of connecting the applications your create with DynaMaker to these type of platforms we have now released plugins in the developer dashboard!
First out is the two plugins SendGrid and Auth0, providing e-mail service and authentication for your project.
These two provide a quick way of handling user interaction when you only have a homepage and dont yet have a full fledged e-commerce platform or customer portal taking care of things like theese.
