Step 2. Use the generated code from Widget Editor or from the example below:

Generate the code with customization through the widget editor or copy the example on how to embed the widget with JavaScript shown below.

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <script src="stwidget.js"></script>

    <p>You can further customize by tweaking properties. Check out the 
        <a href="https://chat.peakd.com/widgettest">property editor</a>, send feedback and 
        feature requests in the chat window above or 
        <a href="https://chat.peakd.com/t/hive-163399/0">open in new window.</a></p>
        var stwidget = new StWidget('https://chat.peakd.com/t/hive-163399/0');
        stwidget.properties = { "requireLogin": false, "sidebar": 2};    
        var element = stwidget.createElement('450px', '556px', false/*overlay*/, true /*resizable*/);

Clone the open source frontend repository and host the widget on your domain to customize it as you see fit.

While not alpha released yet, there is a frontend/backend library that can be used to communicate with the messaging backend nodes to read and post messages.
