Introducing EmbedBox: Our Open-Source Embed Code Install UI

How many times have you written “Just copy-paste this embed code into the end of the <body>”? If you’re building a tool which gets installed onto websites, it’s inevitable that you will write that at one point or another. It’s likely you’ll then have to create docs for installing that embed code on Wordpress, and Drupal, and Joomla, and Shopify, and every other CMS platform under the sun.

It’s silly that every SaaS company or open-source tool which wants to get something installed has to repeat the same (mind-numbing) work.

EmbedBox can be displayed as a modal which opens up, or inline.

If you have a tool which you would like people to install, give EmbedBox a try. Even better, contribute a new feature, a bugfix, or instructions for a new platform!
