EE Insider Accessory


The workshop here at EE Insider World Headquarters has been buzzing along creating fun stuff to share with you. Today, we’d like to make available the EE Insider accessory add-on for ExpressionEngine 2.0 (GitHub download).

The accessory (a new type of add-on in EE 2.0) gives you a quick and easy view of the latest news and tips from EE Insider. It’s a great way to keep up-to-date and take a break from building awesome EE-powered websites.

The accessory is available at GitHub and is free to download and use on as many sites as you like.

Congrats Ryan! This will be really useful for me and my site.

Nice work, Kenny, it’s a very simple example of a quite useful addition to the control panel, and even demonstrates how view files can be used with an Accessory, which should make non-developer-oriented designers squeal with glee.

Thanks DJ. Thanks also for including the Magpie plugin and the sample accessory. Made coding it a lot easier.
