Introducing Zesty.io's WebEngine Explorer

Kim Koga 05.15.2020

We're pleased to announce the release of our Chrome extension: WebEngine Explorer. When building views in Zesty.io, content can be used in any number of ways on different pages. This extension allows the user to view all related content models on a page and edit them instantly.

The WebEngine View Explorer works with the stage environment on any Zesty.io webpage and will provide additional information to help developers while they're working on their instances. View Instance details, page details, and content model details including ZUIDs and direct links to edit content.

After installing the extension, navigate to Zesty.io and open your preview link.

Clicking the extension will allow you to adjust the refresh interval and provides jumplinks that allow users to quickly edit content and instance settings.
