Custom Design Library

From old feedback: Custom Design Library | Cwicly

A separate place where you can store your own sections so you can build your own design library with a good accessibility, own categories and related snapshots of the actual section. Just like the Cwicly design library. I know there is something existing already, but this is not meant to create, manage and continuously extend a large library.

Upvote,

Yes, this would save so much time for me, and would make building processes so much quicker.

Indeed, this is needed.

This is going to be reviewed with our next iteration of the Design Library which should include our designs, your own personal ones and community shared designs.

Has any thought been given to using block patterns instead of pre-designed templates?

Hi there @David,

Indeed, this would have been the simplest way to go.

Sadly, with the current implementation of patterns we can’t control anything when the block is inserted, which means we cannot change the unique ID of the block which in turn will create problems with our internal class management.

But the new design library will be a lot closer to the current implementation of patterns, which I must say are very easy to access and insert.

So :+1: for bringing this up.

Hey, @Louis,

would it be possible to copy Oxygen’s implementation of owning your own library on a separate WP installation which you can access through an API key?

Hi @jUrkY3fO,

Indeed, we’re looking at multiple solutions and Oxygen’s is certainly appealing.
A user will definitely be able to create his own library and share (sell?) it with others.

Also what seems really important is allowing an end-user to set up a complete theme (with templates, template parts, conditions) provided by you from A to Z from within the library, basically with a single click…

The point we’re still not quite sure on is if the libraries will be stored on our servers (you retain all rights) or use the user’s WordPress installation as a base.

Suggestions are always welcome :wink:

Option to sell own library would be truly awesome.

I think letting us use our own would be the best solution. Takes stuff off your back so you can focus on the more important stuff.

How would one handle dynamic content?
What about custom post types, ACF options, etc.?
In terms of complete themes, this would be necessary.
Is this achievable in some (convenient) way?

Agreed, even if there will be an official Cwicly template marketplace (which of course could follow its own rules then).
