More secret widgets: Instagram embedding, 3D models & video player

Our top priority is to keep Readymag flexible, which is why we don’t limit our customers to preset widgets. When building a website with Readymag you can employ an ever-growing number of third-party elements, thus expanding the functionality of your project almost infinitely. To assist with this, the Readymag team created an Embed & Code widget that translates shareable code from third-party developers for your web project.

Earlier we showcased five great widgets that can help your Readymag projects. Here are another five!
