With the Scripts API, your apps and integrations can insert scripts for analytics, single-click apps, live chat and support plugins, and theme extensions without manually pasting code into your control panel.

Streamline content management with the Widgets API

With the Widgets API, you can create modular blocks of content and reuse them on new and existing store pages. You can also build tools that enable non-technical users to control content without editing theme files.
