The sticky side of screen approach is...interesting. That the only UX/UI implementation option with how you have built this?

@jcwinter mvp is sticky sidebar, similar to Gmail/Google Docs. v2 will have embeddable buttons, modals, and more control over components. What other implementation are you thinking?

@pavtalk generally speaking, an 'integration directory-as-a-service' is a really compelling idea in my opinion. I have seen one or two companies who are working on this, but none who have really taken off. So instead of the 'hey we work with everything, **cough,cough** you have to use Zapier yourself and build the connection you want', Saas products offering direct one click integrations that are completely white labeled. No need to reinvent the wheel Everytime. Stripe is to payments as x is to product integrations basically. That needs to exist.

Nice idea, I hope to see new integrated apps later !

Most SaaS apps spend a ton of engineering time rebuilding the same old integrations. For instance, you'd be hard-pressed to find a site that hasn't rebuilt the 'export to google sheets' button for reporting. Integrations.js lets product managers add features at the click of a button. It takes an engineer a minute to setup, only one time. Basically if Segment.com and Gmail add-ons (https://blog.google/products/g-s...) got freaky together, you'd get Integrations.js. Here are some examples usecases: - If users spend time copying data from your site into spreadsheets, you can add an "Export to Google Sheets" feature to your site with in ~60 seconds. - If users constantly flip between your site and Trello to create cards, you can add Trello to your site in ~60 seconds. Enjoy! And message if there are other integrations you'd like enabled.

Very interesting idea and appreciate the "cast a lines and see what bites" approach to product launch. Export is neat, but the "Views" are what is really interesting. I could imagine something like a "reverse Segment". Segment and Zapier have made it even easier to push customer information for the right tool for the job, but regathering that context back in something like a central staff/admin system currently involves so much custom API interfacing or ETLing and both leaving you with only raw data. Imagining even with just a user/unique ID how much context information could be pulled in that could help CS/CX teams, operations, any staff that deal with customers along their pipeline. Interactions history customers: Kustomer, ZenDesk, Delighted, Intercom, MailChimp, MailJet, every ESP on the planet, etc ad infinitum Ecommerce & Fulfillment: Shopify, Etsy, ShipStation, AfterShip, etc Payments: Stripe, Braintree, Recurly, Chargify, etc... The ability to conditionally regather and display that context information + be able to interface back with those systems is killer. Kustomer is doing something very interesting with their context cards which this reminds me of. With all those integrations, do you plan on opening up an SDK for the community to help out? Best of luck and look forward to experimenting!

@ken_colton Is the goal for you to have a single view of customers (across kustomer, zendesk, delighted, shopify, stripe, etc) for internal purposes or to show back to the customer as cards?
Ken Colton@ken_colton · CTO @ Material World
@pavtalk Thanks for reply. For our internal staff tools only. For example we have a staff view of a user, it has their basic account information + our service. But our CS team is constantly jumping to a new tab to for example look at their Stripe history or if they had recent support desk interactions.

This is a cool idea. I would be curious to see what are the integrations coming down the line.
