Enhance your community with amazing content display options. Enable and control search and navigation across multiple community sites. Empower large, diverse communities with service portals for site and content creation. Do all this without having to install plug-ins or set up add-on servers to host services. These UX Widgets enrich Jive overview pages with powerful intranet platform capabilities.
This is the starter widget in this series of open source releases that eases finding and displaying information about content in your community. The Content Lookup widget is a handy tool for quickly locating content in your Jive community and obtaining various stats and reference information. It utilizes the Jive V3 search API and parses the returned information into an easy to consume table. In particular, this widget makes getting the content ID and Binary URL to uploaded files in the Jive instance much easier than doing API lookups in the browser and parsing the returned information for that level of detail. The Content Lookup widget is so useful that the rest of the projects in this series have this as a prerequisite. All of their installation instructions reference its use to help set the projects up within your Jive instance.
This HTML widget project greatly increases the usable space on pages by displaying information in an accordion viewer. Viewers expand sections to display the content within. An easy-to-use builder application creates a self-service portal for site admins to come and generate an accordion for their page in three easy steps:
1. Create a Jive document with a table defining what to build in the accordion.
2. Give the builder application the URL to the setup document, and it generates all of the required code.
3. Place an HTML widget on the target site, and paste the generated code into it.
The accordion widget dynamically builds collapsible Bootstrap panels based on the setup document’s content. This allows the accordion to be set up quickly and easily, and modifications are a snap.
Have you ever wanted a search that only looked in specific places on your community? This project is an alternative to the Jive search widget’s “current place” or “global” search options. It allows you to set up a list of places for the search to look through. This is very useful for business functions that have work spread across several locations within the community, and want to limit search results to only those places. A builder application lets you set the places that will be searched, eases the configuration process, and generates all of the code to get multi-site searches up and running.
How would you like to view various pieces of content within your community within a single site? You can surface documents, discussions, profiles, and even other overview pages from your community in a single Content Viewer. All of this functionality is built and maintained using a single Jive document with a bullet list representing the Table of Contents (TOC). A builder application removes all of the complexity and generates all of the code for you. All you have to do is set up two widgets on a page. One widget will become the TOC pane, and the other will become the display panel. Clicking an item in the TOC loads the content into the display panel for viewing. Users can select which content to view by the content listed in the TOC and you do not have to implement and maintain complicated menus and navigation bars to keep your sites up to date and connected. Changes can be made to the TOC document to add, modify, and delete entries. Linked documents and sites contained in the TOC can be edited to modify the content that is displayed. Give your community the ultimate in convenience.
Do you need to export the followers of a person or place? How about exporting event attendee details, including emails? The Export widget is a service portal that automates the process of gathering information from your community and parsing it into an easy to read, export-friendly format. Get the information you need without all the hassle.
Building on Dave Myers original Content Slider project on the Jive community, this project eases the process of creating a Picture Carousel. The presentation is set up using a single Jive document with a table to control the slides, headings, and links. A builder application allows users to easily configure size, colors, fonts, and more for total control over the experience.
Presentation (to be released soon)
Team Listing (to be released soon)
The projects that are not currently linked to their Github repository are still in the release process. They will be available soon.
Tile conversions of these projects are possible, but the UI design would need to work around the tile size restrictions. Conversion to add-ons / apps is also possible, but the widget design has worked best for our communities. We look forward to your feedback and contributions.
