Sitecore Hackathon 2019 - Screenshot module


Happy to share that our RAS team participated in Sitecore Hackathon 2019 on Sat 2 Mar. We started our day at 6 AM and finished it around 10:30 PM.

Out of 6 different problem categories, we selected one of the category “Best enhancement to the Sitecore XP UI for Content Editors & Marketers” as our problem statement.

We have developed a Screenshot module for Sitecore Content and Experience Editor. It works like a charm.

Sharing below reference links for module video, Sitecore package and documentation.

I deliberately skipping all module details here in the hope that you will watch the video 😉.  Love to hear your comment(s), feedback(s) or suggestion(s).

4th Sitecore Marketplace Module – Sitecore Social Feeds Manager

Sitecore Social Feeds Manager
Sitecore Social Feeds Manager

I am very excited to share my 4th module “Sitecore Social Feeds Manager” on Sitecore marketplace. You can download it from here.

We all know the importance of social media for product branding. Almost all websites showing their organization or products related social messages to their website.

I created this helix-based module for getting social feeds from Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and Instagram.

Steps to use this module
1. Download and installed this Sitecore package
2. Fill your Social keys for Facebook, Twitter and Youtube in item "/sitecore/content/Habitat/Global/Social/Social Media Manager"
3. Publish Sitecore items.
4. Access JSON result from URL http://<your.sitecore.instance>/api/sitecore/social/GetSocialFeeds?channelName=youtube&token=accesstoken.

By default, it shows recent 8 feeds from each social channel but you can control the number of feeds from Sitecore.

I also included “All” feeds option where you can access recent 2 feeds from each channel and show mix of total 8 feeds on your front end. Again, you can control total numbers of feeds from Sitecore for “All” use case.

I have excluded HTML part on this module as every website have different HTML and look and feel. So directly consume this JSON output and integrate it in your HTML at desired location.

A sample HTML for calling and using this JSON data by AJAX is

<div id="SocialFeedsDiv">

    <script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.3.1/jquery.min.js"></script>

    <script>


        $(document).ready(function () {
            var b = null;
            $("#all").click(function () {
                loadfeeds("All")
            });

            $("#Facebook").click(function () {
                loadfeeds("Facebook")
            });

            $("#Twitter").click(function () {
                loadfeeds("Twitter")
            });

            $("#Youtube").click(function () {
                loadfeeds("Youtube")
            });

            $("#Instagram").click(function () {
                loadfeeds("Instagram")
            });


            function loadfeeds(channelName) {
                $.get("/api/sitecore/social/GetSocialFeeds?channelName=" + channelName + "&token=accesstoken", function (data, status) {
                    var index = 1;
                    $("#feedlist").html("");
                    $.each(data.responseResult, function (i, field) {
                        var imageurl = "";
                        if (field.ImageURL !="" || field.ImageURL != null) {
                            imageurl = "ImageURL : <a href='" + field.FeedURL + "' ><img src='" + field.ImageURL + "' alt='" + field.Title + "' /> </a> <br>";
                        }
                        $("#feedlist").append(
                            "<li>Sr No :" + index + "<br>" +
                            "FeedID :" + field.FeedID + "<br>" +
                            "PlatformName :" + field.PlatformName + "<br>" +
                            "Title :" + field.Title + "<br>" +
                            "Description :" + field.Description + "<br>" + imageurl
                            +
                            "FeedURL :" + field.FeedURL + "<br>" +
                            "Timestamp :" + field.Timestamp + "<br>" +
                            "From :" + field.From + "<br><br><br>" + "</li>"
                        );
                        index++;
                    });
                });
            }
        });

    </script>

     <br />
    <a href="javascript:void(0)" id="all">All</a><br />
    <a href="javascript:void(0)" id="Facebook">Facebook</a><br />
    <a href="javascript:void(0)" id="Twitter">Twitter</a><br />
    <a href="javascript:void(0)" id="Youtube">Youtube</a><br />
    <a href="javascript:void(0)" id="Instagram">Instagram</a><br />

    <div id="feed">

    </div>

    <br />
    <br />

    <div id="HTMLfeed">
        <ul id="feedlist"></ul>


    </div>
