Widget API Documentation

1.Load API Script

Add following javascript file to your page.

<script src="//services.wheel-size.com/code/ws-widget.js"></script>

After that global variable WheelSizeWidgets will be available.

2.Embed Widget

Use WheelSizeWidgets.create method to create widget instance:

WheelSizeWidgets.create(selector, configuration)
  Embeds widget's iframe into container specified by selector.

    selector      (string) - css selector identifying widget container element
    configuration (object) - configuration options, may contain following properties
            uuid        (string) required - configuration uuid
            width       (string|number) - widget html width
            height      (string|number) - widget html height
            iframeAttrs (object) - standard html parameters for iframe tag

    Widget instance

    - If iframe element is already exist and you just want to create Widget instance,
      leave absent uuid field or configuration parameter at all.
    - If height field is evaluated to false, autoresize is used.
      It means that iframe window will automatically adjust its height for content.

Widget instance contains following attributes:
  iframe (element) - iframe element
  parent (element) - iframe container element, specified by selector
  config (object)  - configuration object

Example usage:

<div id="ws-widget-fdbe15"></div>

  var widget = WheelSizeWidgets.create('#ws-widget-fdbe15', {
    uuid: 'fdbe15edbc074b59ba5efd0bd3d3ee3c',
    width: 600

Make sure that WheelSizeWidgets.create is called when corresponding container element is already exists.

Another way is to create iframe element manually in html.
If you than want to use javascript API, use WheelSizeWidgets.create method without configuration parameter.

<div id="ws-widget-fdbe15">
  <iframe src="//services.wheel-size.com/widget/fdbe15edbc074b59ba5efd0bd3d3ee3c/"
          width="600" height="400" frameborder="0">

  var widget = WheelSizeWidgets.create('#ws-widget-fdbe15');

3.Widget Events

The Widget instances have on and off methods for event handling.

Widget.on(type, callback)
  Binds a callback function to the widget.

    type     (string)   required - event type
    callback (function) required - event handler

Widget.off(type, callback)
  Removes a previously-bound callback function from the widget.

    type     (string)   required - event type
    callback (function) required - event handler

The API provides following events:

ready:document - fires when iframe's DOM is ready
ready:window   - fires when iframe's window is loaded

activate - fires when any new tab activated
activate:tab - fires when the tab activated
               tab is one of search_by_model, search_by_tire, search_by_rim
  Event data contains
    newTab (string) - activated tab, one of tabs

change - fires when any resource is changed
change:resource - fires when resource's select value is changed
                  resource is one of make, year, model, tire_width, aspect_ratio, rim_diameter, rim_width, bolt_pattern
  Event data contains
    resource (string) - identifier of changed resource, one of resources
    value    (object)
      slug   (string) - slug of new value, e.g. "aston-martin"
      title  (string) - human readable value, e.g. "Aston Martin"

Any event data also contains
  tab (string) - identifier of current tab, one of tabs

Example usage:

var widget = WheelSizeWidgets.create('#ws-widget-fdbe15');
widget.on('ready:window', function(e) {
  console.log('Widget is loaded');
widget.on('change:make', function(e) {
  console.log('Make is changed. New value object is', e.data.value);

4.Custom Links in Search Result

Do you want to use our widget for search and insert links to your site?
Look at the image below - there is plenty of places where you can embed your links.

Our widget api allows to embed three type of links in each column. You can insert link before, after or instead of original content.


  linksObject is a key-options object
    key (string) - place of user link, should be one of
        beforeTrim, replaceTrim, afterTrim,
        beforeTire, replaceTire, afterTire,
        beforeRim, replaceRim, afterRim,
        beforeBoltPattern, replaceBoltPattern, afterBoltPattern,
        beforeThd, replaceThd, afterThd,
        beforeCb, replaceCb, afterCb

    options (object) - user link options, may contain following properties
            href  (string) required - template for link url
            title (string) - template for link title
            text  (string) - template for link text
            icon  (string) - link icon
            click (function) - click handler (more information see below)
            clickPreventDefault (boolean) - set to true to prevent default click action

            If link type is replace, text is ignored and used original value.
            Otherwise one of text and icon is required.

            Another way to specify click handlers is Widget.on method
            User links API provides following events:
            click - fires when any user link is clicked
            click:column, e.g. click:trim - fires when any link in the column is clicked
            click:place, e.g. click:replaceTrim - fires when link at specified place is clicked

            Event data contains
            column   (string) - link column, e.g. "trim"
            type     (string) - link type, e.g. "replace"
            link     (object)
              text   (string) - interpolated link text (text template rendered with context)
              href   (string) - interpolated link href
            context  (object) - template context (list of context fields see below)

  Template is a string with {{ placeholders }}.
    You can use following variables in custom link templates:
        trim                  (string),  e.g. "1.8"
        is_oem                (boolean), e.g. true
        bolt_pattern          (string),  e.g. "5x105"
        thd                   (string),  e.g. "M12 x 1.5"

        fuel                  (string),  e.g. "Petrol"
        engine_type           (string),  e.g. "V6"
        power.PS              (number),  e.g. 328
        power.hp              (number),  e.g. 323

        generation.name       (string),  e.g. "III Restyling"
        generation.start_year (number),  e.g. 2012

        make, year, model - objects with fields slug and title,
            e.g. { slug: "chevrolet", title: "Chevrolet" }

    Learn examples below for more information.

  User footer allows to insert custom content before or after button "... on Wheel-Size.com".

  Possible keys: beforeButton, afterButton
  Options has additional configuration field:
          type (string) with two possible values: text, link (default is text)

  For link type href, title, text templates make sence, for text - only text

  Template context contains only make, year, model objects.

Example usage:

var widget = WheelSizeWidgets.create('#ws-widget-fdbe15');
    replaceTire: {
      href: 'http://www.wheel-size.com/tire/{{ tire }}/',
      title: '{{ tire }} on wheel-size.com'

Each text in tire column will be replaced with the link to your site:

One more example:

var widget = WheelSizeWidgets.create('#ws-widget-fdbe15');
    beforeTrim: {
        href: 'http://www.wheel-size.com/{{ trim }}/',
        icon: 'new-window',
        title: '{{ trim }} on wheel-size.com',
        click: function(e) {
