Front end

The prototype now includes the ability to add items to your store. Messaging is in the process of moving away from a widget to a right hand side panel. This will free up more space and solve some ux issues that the widget presented.

Below is a demo video of the current state of the prototype, and you can try it yourself in Chrome.

This week

Back end: Work on the Networking repo continues. Front end: Delete items, Edit items, Finish settings, Finish the UI changes on Messaging and adding the ability to select pre-set page templates.
