I went from seeing this to having a new 'News' page live on my site in about 30 minutes. Previously, we had been direct linking out from our nav to our Medium blog, nice to have people stay on our site a little longer to preview the recent articles before sending them out. I added a screen width check to load in the widget as 1, 2, or 3 columns depending on the browser's width. Here's what it looks like on our site: https://findawayvoices.com/news/

Pros:

Lots of options for what info to include, extremely fast to generate your embed code and get up and running, looks great out of the box.

Cons:

No native responsive support (but easy to shim that in). Images too low-res for single column.

Hey Will, Thank you for your feedback. We just released a minor update which added ability to define an aspect ratio for picture "Original", "Landscape", "Square". So all your new visitors will see the landscape images by default. For other cache time will be 5 hours. You could check it to but clear cache at first, to make sure your widget.js file is up to date.
Hi @willdages, do you mind sharing how you made it responsive? Thanks.

Very nice widget but it seems that the backend is down.

I get the error ERR_CERT_DATE_INVALID

Can you fix it ? Thank you again for the work :)

Also, it would be amazing to open source the project.

Pros:

Beautiful design

Customizable

Cons:

Not open source

Until it becomes responsive and mobile-friendly, I will not be using Medium Widget. A material design option (or another design language) would be cool.

Pros:

It's clean, simple and easy to set up.

Cons:

It needs to be responsive. I'm having trouble getting it to work with my mobile-friendly site.
