Overview

An app developed for the Wix platform must be registered in the Dev Center. Visit the Dev Center to find all of the resources necessary to develop, register and submit an app including documentation, support, samples and much more.

In the Dev Center you can integrate an existing app, develop new apps from scratch and define and manage your app’s configurations. The “My apps” tab displays a list of all of your apps and their status, specifically the Wix approval process status. From the "My apps" tab, you can also edit your app's configurations and test your app in the Wix Editor.

To customize your app:

  1. Click the View in Wix Editor button.
  2. Add your app to the site; you can find it under the Developers apps category of the App Market.
  3. Change the setting of the app using the app settings panel. You can also resize the app to fit the live demo tab.

Once you have finished customizing your app, click Preview Mode in the Wix Editor and copy the app iframe URL including all parameters to the live demo tab.

 

If you would like to add a video to the demo tab, embed the video in an internet page (even a Wix site) and put that URL in the Dev Center.
