Common Ninja: News & Updates — August 2023

In this edition, we delve into the world of API Integration, exploring how it's transforming the way our widgets interact with various platforms. We also introduce our AI Content Enhancer, a cutting-edge feature designed to elevate your content creation process. 

We're thrilled to announce our integration with Wix API and Wix Data Collections, further expanding our compatibility with leading web development platforms. In other news, our YouTube channel has hit a milestone with 200 subscribers, thanks to our dedicated community. 

Lastly, we're excited to unveil a host of new widgets and features, each designed to provide you with more versatility and control over your website's functionality. Join us as we explore these updates in more detail.

API Integration

We are excited to introduce our latest feature — the API integration. This powerful tool allows you to connect a Common Ninja widget directly to your API, enabling the widget to pull data dynamically and display live data. This means that your widget will always be up-to-date, reflecting the most recent data from your API in real-time.

This feature is designed to streamline your workflow and enhance the user experience. Instead of manually updating your widget data, the API integration does the heavy lifting for you. It fetches the data from your API and updates the widget automatically. This not only saves you valuable time but also ensures accuracy and consistency in the data displayed on your widget.

AI Content Enhancer

We are delighted to introduce our latest AI-powered feature, the "AI Content Enhancer," as part of our comprehensive widget suite. This innovative tool is designed to streamline the widget creation process, making it more efficient and user-friendly.

Consider a scenario where you're designing a widget and struggling to craft compelling copy that will engage your audience. This is where our AI Content Enhancer steps in. Acting as your personal content assistant, it understands the context of your work and the purpose of your widget, providing you with customized copy suggestions. The tool allows you to specify the tone and length of the content, making it a versatile addition to your creative process.

This feature is our second AI offering this year, demonstrating our ongoing commitment to harnessing the power of AI. We aim to continually innovate and integrate AI capabilities into our platform, enhancing its power and intuitiveness for businesses, agencies, and small to medium-sized businesses.

Wix API / Wix Data Collections

We are excited to announce a significant upgrade to our Wix apps. Common Ninja has successfully integrated with the Wix Data API, marking a major milestone in our commitment to delivering superior no-code solutions for Wix users.

This integration allows you to directly connect your Wix collections to our diverse range of widgets, including Charts, Tables, Progress Bars, and more. The result is a more streamlined workflow, improved efficiency, and an enhanced user experience. You can now use the data from your Wix collections to create dynamic, real-time widgets, making your website or online store more interactive and responsive.
