hukdpress

Automagical display of deals from hotukdeals.com on your post or page. Requires a free API key available from hotukdeals.com/rest-api

hukdpress (pronounced hucked-press, or something similar), is a magical, shiny and some even say mystical wordpress plugin that uses the API from the awesome guys at hotukdeals.com.

The plugin appends to any post, or page you want, a list of deals sourced from hotukdeals.com which match some criteria which you specify on a per-post basis. It's great for showing the best prices or latest offers on the subject of your post or page.

Now, to use this plugin, you need to apply for an API key directly from hotukdeals.com, but thats cool. It's totally free.

Now, lets give the bad news before the good news. The plugin will work fine on IE6, but might look ugly because of pretty transparency used all over the place. All other modern browsers are supported. Maybe even lynx, but thats up to you to try.

Features:

  • Full non-javascript support for the odd people who don't use it.
  • Full support of all the aspects of the hotukdeals.com API.
  • Restrict your searches to various categories of hotukdeals.com
  • Cache! Everything is cached (if you want..) to stop you hitting you API limit if you have thousands of viewers.
  • Javascript enabled users unknowingly handle updating the cache by AJAX, so there are no slowdowns in page loads.
  • "Basic" mode disables all the pretty curves in case your theme doesn't look good with the default settings.
  • Configuration of colours, scrolling wait times, number of deals, areas to search.. pretty much everything.
  • Optional integration with twitter means your viewers can tweet deals they find via. your site.
  • Automagic validation of your API key upon entry.

Requirements:

  • Requires wordpress 2.8 thanks to everything thats shiny and new and makes this stuff easier
  • Any version of PHP 5

For what its worth, this is my first wordpress plugin. But don't hold that against it - it's actually pretty neat, and you know, works, which is a huge plus.
