AngulEdit

VendorFuel comes with a powerful editor called AngulEdit. The purpose of this editor is to allow developers to rapidly create, deploy, and maintain beautiful pages on WordPress sites. First, developers create templates in the editor. Next, the developer embeds the templates into WordPress pages via shortcodes.  AngulEdit consists of two tabs: Content and JavaScript. The Content tab contains the template’s HTML while the JavaScript tab contains the AngularJS controller. In addition to AngularJS, the JavaScript tab accepts other frameworks such as jQuery.

Currently, AngulEdit comes only as part of the VendorFuel plugin. However, the VendorFuel team is working to break this apart into a standalone plugin. In fact, this plugin will be available SOON. Additionally, the AngulEdit template repository will allow developers to create and use open source templates. To get news about the standalone AngulEdit, opt-in to the VendorFuel newsletter today!

Next Generation E-commerce Toolkit

The VendorFuel plugin for WordPress provides a complete e-commerce experience. For example, you can create an online store right out of the box, with no programming experience. To facilitate customization of your WordPress pages, each installation of the plugin comes with AngulEdit. 

Two major concerns when developing WordPress e-commerce sites are performance and security. Consequently, VendorFuel’s API is built on the Laravel framework while the front end is served using AngularJS and Bootstrap. This combination provides seamless scalability and extreme versatility. In fact, the plugin itself is nothing more than a lightweight connector to the API. Furthermore, VendorFuel is theme agnostic and works with just about any other plugin installed.

Resellers built VendorFuel. In fact, the creators use this plugin themselves as part of the Office Depot diversity program on a site called ItemGrabber. By using our own plugin, rest assured that VendorFuel is a total solution to modern e-commerce. See below for features included in the plugin:
