Installation Widget for Single or Group of Applications

Within your site you can place a widget with a short description and Install button for a single application one-click deployment or for the categorized set of solutions chosen from Marketplace. The widget looks as follows:

In this guide, you will find out how to create the installation widget for a separate application or a set of them.

Integrating Widget

In case you want a fully customizable widget for a separate application installation, you can follow our step-by-step guide below:

  1. You need to upload the j-marketplace.js script and the j-marketplace.min.css styles to your server. These files with the default styles can be downloaded from repository:
  1. Add the mp-widget folder with the above-mentioned files to the root folder of your site and insert the following lines between the and tags of the required page:
<script async src="{siteUrl}/mp-widget/js/j-marketplace.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="{siteUrl}/mp-widget/css/j-marketplace.min.css">

Ensure that {siteUrl} provides a correct path to the previously uploaded files.

  1. Add the following block to your page code at the position you’d like the widget to be placed at:
<div class="j-app-mp" data-apps="{app-id}" data-key="app.{[hoster_domain](https://docs.jelastic.com/jelastic-hoster-info)}"></div>

If you skip the data-key parameter, a customer will be able to select any preferred platform.

  • {app-id} - identifier of a single or several comma-separated application IDs (for example, data-apps="wordpress, wordpress-cluster, nexus”)
  1. Additionally, you can add the parameter with a specific group where the package should be installed. For example, it can define a group with specialized limits, which will allow users to test some complex application that cannot be installed on the regular trial accounts. Or you can create a dedicated group with bonuses and use for some marketing campaigns.
<data-group="{group}">

Note that this parameter works only with new accounts, already registered users will be redirected for installation within their existing group.

Widget Localization & Customization

You can adjust the widget up to your needs using some of the predefined parameters.

  1. The source code of the application widget can be found in its repository. It is built with the help of the Grunt project builder (to compile and minimize .js scripts and .less files), which can also be used to redefine default styles and adjust the widget.

  2. Add default parameters from the list below to customize your widget and apply localization.

data-tx-errorWarning for the case of some problem occurrence.An error has occurred, please try again later

Add the required properties to your widget code, for example:

<div class="j-app-mp"
     data-mpapi="//marketplace.jelastic.com/"
     data-key="app.{hoster_domain}"
     data-apps="wordpress, wordpress-cluster, nexus"
     data-group="promotion-trial"
     data-text="Install"
     data-tx-invalid-email="Invalid email, please check the spelling"
     data-tx-error="An error has occurred, please try again later"
     data-tx-success="Success.\nr\ Request is sent"
     data-tx-email-placeholder="Enter email"
     data-tx-preloader="Loading, please wait..."
