What are Widgets?

Widget is an HTML component that can be embedded in your webpage or web application that displays posts you created on AnnounceKit.

Widgets allow you to implement a notification center inside your web page/application without any coding requirements. It has a rich feature set and content support such as images, videos, and embedded documents.

The widget includes an attention-grabbing element called Launcher that increases the visibility of your widget.
