Proper coding in Frog!

It’s taken longer than I hoped to get here, but we now have a proper code editor built inside Frog, and this is just the beginning of the next exciting stage of it’s evolution.

Although this is called a HTML Widget, it’s far more than that.  Frog is developed entirely using a combination of back end APIs and front end JavaScript, and given that this HTML Widget also allows you to write JavaScript that means you can build pretty much anything that WE can build here, right from within the Frog Site Editor!

So whether you want to build your own personalised dashboard widgets, data reporting, or integrations with third party products, now you can do it just by dragging a widget on the screen and (in my case) cutting and pasting some code!

Coding in Frog

If you’ve started using this and you’ve built anything cool then please let me know, especially if it’s okay to share it with other schools!

Why am I so excited?

Our previous product, Frog 3, wasn’t actually a learning platform.  It was a sophisticated content management system, one that was powerful enough to build your own tailored learning platform with.  But more importantly, many other things, too, from YouTube type systems, to social networks.

Frog Learn (based on our FrogOS technology) is way more than that, but in honesty it’s taken us far too long to get to the point where we can make this available to the schools properly.  Well now we’re there.  And this means that our customers now have bar none the most powerful and flexible system available.  And just like Frog 3, that means that this is no longer just a learning platform, it’s whatever you want it to be.

And this is just the beginning. The Frog system is about to take many leaps forward, I’m sure it doesn’t take a genius to work out where this is all going!
