On this lesson we get familiar with the Craft Cms plugin store.
It has been the best investment I made in my design journey so far. I would consider myself a novice but I honestly feel like I've gained a genuine professional insight into the process of creating a high-level website.
I'm an early adopter of the KreativePro Masterclass, and I love how well put together it is. Neftali takes you through each step of the process from paper sketches to marketing all with fun visuals & clear instructions!
Hey guys. Welcome back. Let's take a look at the craft plugin store. This next lesson I want to show you some of the plugins that we will be covering. We will need to download and install these plug-ins directly into our crafts installation. If you remember on the designs that we've created for Stream VR, one of the cool features is the ability for users to sign up, but also add movies or games into a wishlist container once they are logged in into the system.
That is why we are going to be looking at wishlist. If we search for wishlist on the plugin store, we'll find it right here. Wishlist is a plugin from the developer verb. Very simple to use a syntax that we can include into our code. This one is $49. The next step is socializer $59 plugin.
This plugin will help us create that one single button login or registration on the page that we have created. So you can register with Google or with Facebook. Now we're going to also download some free plugins, this free plugins, for example, redactor. So reductor is a free plugin from pixel and tonic.
As you can see here on the preview, it just gives us a little bit more power over the settings, when we start adding content in our fields, like adding images and links and a lot of other cool features, including an image editor. Cool so FeedMe is a plugging that we will need in order for us to import a large document full of data.
So for example, when we are about to create, all the database of entries from movies and bullying, the thumbnails, the actors, the descriptions in summary, we can pull that from multiple types of files. It can be an XML. It could be an RSS and feed me what it does. It just imports all that data and transforms it into entries.
So that way, if you ever need to migrate from an older websites, say for example, a WordPress, and you're wanting to move that over to craft, you can use FeedMe to import all that data. Pretty quickly. All right amazon S3 is our cloud management tool and we also have a plugin that is free. If you simply download.
So whenever we want to send out all the images over to the cloud, we don't need to use our local server. We can use a CDN cloud server like Amazon, that it's a little bit more powerful. One thing also, what we will need in order for us to download is a Craft ID. This is where they manage all your life, all the licenses so you will need to create an account in order for you to start buying these plugins. All right, so let's take a look at here at the settings and inside plugins, we can see Amazon S3 is now installed and we can access or disable, if we want to disable the plugin. It's pretty straightforward.
Once we actually start looking at creating our volumes. We can go into assets, create volume, and that now it will show instead of just the local folder, it will now show us the Amazon S3. Amazon S3, will have an access key and a secret access key that we will need to include in these fields. And we can choose the bucket of where we want to have those images loaded.
Cool. That's it for the plugin store. Stick around for the next lesson, which is the documentation. I'll see you there on the next class.
