In order to realize the cross-platform plug-in mechanism, Fresns adopts "inline framework" as the operation logic, allowing plug-ins to run as independent modules (or deploy independently). Plug-ins communicate with each other using "command words", and clients use callback and feedback to deal with the feedback in inline framework, so as to determine the subsequent operation.

Usage Scenarios

  • On the current page of the browser, the iframe access plug-in page of the inline framework layer pops up in Modal mode.
  • In the browser's new tab (new window), visit the plug-in page.
  • In the App, visit the plug-in page with the view component WebView.
  • In the WeChat mini program, access the plug-in page with the container component web-view.

Usage Process

  • Step 1, the client defines the name to bury the extension operation (the access address of the extension plug-in in API);
  • Step 2, after the user clicks the Bury button, the client processes the variable name in the URL path in real time and replaces it with the variable value;
  • Step 3, the user performs the corresponding operation on the plug-in page, and after the operation, the plug-in sends the postMessage message to the parent by the postMessageKey identification parameter;
  • Step 4, the client receives the postMessage message of the plug-in page and processes the subsequent business functions.

Built-in Package

The main program of Fresns has built-in iFrame Resizer extension package.

  • /static/js/iframeResizer.min.js
  • /static/js/iframeResizer.contentWindow.min.js

postMessage Intro

After the operation is completed on the plug-in page, it will return the data in the following Object format to the client through postMessage communication, and the client will locate the subsequent business functions by the defined postMessageKey identification name.

    "code": 0, // Processing status code
    "message": "ok", // Alert message in case of failure
    "action": {
        "postMessageKey": "fresnsEditorUpload", // The value of the postMessageKey variable in the path
        "windowClose": true, // Whether to close the window or modal
        "reloadData": false, // Whether to reload data
        "redirectUrl": "" // Redirect URL
    "data": {
        // For example, a map extension that returns information about the user's selected location
