Zyxware Technologies has developed and contributed CiviWCI (CiviCRM Widget Creation
Interface) to the Free Software Foundation to assist in the fund raising campaign that FSF is launching in Dec 2014. The extension is expected to help FSF create “Donate Now” and “Join Now” widgets (fund raising and newsletter subscription) that can be embedded on any site that wishes to support FSF. This extension will replace the earlier widget system used by FSF. Through this contribution, Zyxware once again reaffirms its commitment to Free Software and the community around Free Software.

CiviWCI is a CMS independent extension for creating and managing embeddable widgets, which can display content from various CiviCRM properties such as Donate links, Progress bar, Malinglist signup forms, html text etc. The Widget Creation Interface (WCI) also offers the flexibility to CiviCRM users to customize the look and feel of the widgets. The widget can be embedded on any website, irrespective of the technology or platform used.

CiviCRM is a web­-based, open source, highly customizable, Constituency Relationship Management (CRM) software aimed at meeting the needs of non­profit and other civic­sector organizations. CiviCRM's robust feature set enables organizations to promote their organizational objectives through contact management, fundraising, event management, member management, mass e­mail marketing, peer­to­peer campaigns, case management, and lots more. CiviCRM is best integrated with Drupal but it has integrations with Wordpress and Joomla as well.


  • CMS (Any CMS supported by CiviCRM, we prefer Drupal)
  • CiviCRM Version 4.4.7 or above


  • Enables users to create embeddable widgets with the support of the existing CiviCRM
    components such as contribution pages and mailinglists.
  • Progress bars can be created and added to widgets which allows the user to know the
    current contribution status.
  • Facilitates users to modify the widget appearing in a website without changing the embed code.
  • With WCI, it is possible to cache the widget to reduce the load on the CiviCRM server.

Please refer to the link below for more details:



For further information about the widget and to customize the widget for your organization, please do get in touch with us.

Freelancing is not just sitting home and earning some extra income, it is in fact a proven career Community Projects Entrepreneurship Freelance Leave a reply Your email address will not be published.

There is a whole bunch of them here and they call themselves as Indie Developers. Nice name eh? And there has been some successful players in the market as well. Nick Bradbudy is one of them. He is maintaining a blog at nick.typepad.com where he recently blogged some generous tips for wannabe indie developers. I think, his blog is an inspirational tool, which probably you might want to add it to your initial list in this blog. Yet another one is Jan Goyvaerts the creator of EditPad Pro. He maintains a blog at http://www.shareware-beach.com/. I myself is a loyal customer of both Nick’s and Jan’s products and I can attest myself that they do what they preach. Yet another concept, which is somewhat relevant to Freelancing is MicroISV a word first coined by Eric Sink (Founder of SourceGear) and later being used and misused by wannabe entrepreneurs. ~ranjith Pagination Current page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Next page Next › Last page Last » Add new comment

Hi. I'm using CiviCRM with Wordpress for a non-profit sports club in the UK. We have only just started to trial CiviCRM to control our membership system, the numbers of which are quite modest at the moment. We are looking for a widget to embed in a sidebar to show the number of current members that we have at any given time, that would populate itself by data from the CiviCRM membership database. Could you please tell us whether your proposed extension would be capable of doing that or be adapted to do that?
Many thanks
