This document covers the following: 


 

Website Requirements

You will also require a website on which to place our application.

The specifics of the website aren't too important, as long as you have the ability to do the following:

  • Place HTML directly on to the page(s) on which you require the BidJS Client
  • Place <script> tags (javascript) into the end of your page(s) on which you require the BidJS Client
  • Add <script> and <link> tags to the <head> of your page(s) on which you require the BidJS Client

If you wish to add custom styles to the BidJS Client, you will also need the ability to update the CSS on your website.(3)



Knowledge Requirements

You will be required to work with the following:

  • JavaScript
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • Visual hooks
  • Bootstrap
  • JavaScript Endpoints


Optionally you may also require: 

  • OAuth/Auth2/SSO


 

Configuration Details

After registering a Webapp(1) with Bidlogix, you will be provided with several pieces of key information.(2)

You'll require this for your setup:

  • An API Base Endpoint
  • A Static Resources Endpoint
  • A Client Identifier

Combined, these settings will allow your website to connect with our system.

Please Note

Usually you will initially be given the demonstration page endpoint details. Any information you put onto this page will be visible publicly and to other potential clients. Please do not upload sensitive information to the demonstration page. 

(1) Webapp - Your account on our servers, representing your website or business

Installation

Installing BidJS successfully involves putting code into relevant HTML tags on your website and then choosing and applying appropriate customisation such as modules and configuration of options. For full information on installing BidJS, you can find our installation guide here

 

 

Version Updating

BidJS and its Versions are updated often depending on our release schedule. As of BidJS version 2.1 (October 2019), clients will be able to take advantage of only updating major BidJS versions (i.e. V2, V3 rather than V2.1, V2.2, etc.). This should reduce the input required by developers/technical staff and ensure that you are always using the most up to date version of our software without any further adjustment between major versions. 


BidJS and its Modules currently have different version numbers. If you are unsure which version is required, please contact us on support@bidlogix.net. You can also find out more about updating your version numbers here.


 

Modules and Options

As stated above, Modules may have a different version number to the main BidJS version so please ensure you are using the correct version. 

There are many modules and options available for use alongside BidJS. You can find out about BidJS Options here and BidJS Modules here
