Is it possible to create a integrated UI via iframe or something similar?

Hi,

I recently found out about vecta and after browsing through the documentation I'm wondering if I would be able to create a "integrated" UI inside a vecta io board. Either fully handwritten in HTML, CSS and JavaScript or if there already is support for this via iframe or such.

The plugin examples that are provided seem very simple although I understand this is the beta phase I was looking to do something similar to the already integrated vecta layers functionality.

Where I could either add my own add to something which could represent a list of board objects same as in layers or some other functionality. And then handle these objects in a small UI pop-up such as the layers pop-up.

So generally my question is, could I technically with the current documentation and support develop something similar to current vecta layers in the form of a plugin? If so could you please link me to the part of documentation that has this, because I couldn't find this part.

thank you.

Hi Sami,

Thanks for reaching out to us.

We would suggest you to use Vecta.Dialog method. You can develop your own dialog to achieve your own functionality. More information here https://vecta.io/api/Vecta.php#.dialog.

If you think that Vecta.Dialog is not ideal for your use case, you can also write the plugin to append your own UI into the editor and write all the UI logic by yourself. Since it is Javascript, the UI can be written by yourself with the help of the Vecta API (https://vecta.io/api/) to interact with the drawing.

Hope that helps. Let us know if you have any other questions and we'd be keen to assist. Have a good day.

Regards,
The Vecta Support Team
