Craft Plugins: Snipcart and Stack Exchange

June 24, 2014 2 min read

The Craft Stack Exchange site (now in public beta!) has me more focused on Craft than ever. Yesterday I finally cleaned up two plugins and released them into the wild.

Snipcart

This one makes it possible, thanks to Snipcart’s API, to browse order information from the Craft control panel. I’ve got a working (but half-baked) web hook in there which currently sends an order confirmation email to a hardcoded address.

Stack Exchange

A plugin that does one thing: it makes Craft CMS Stack Exchange info available for your templates, via the Stack Exchange API.

Each is a work in progress, but could probably be useful to someone as-is. I’m open to any thoughts, suggestions, pull requests, complaints, or exclamations anyone might have.
