Integrate virtual tours with immersive virtual reality into your website or portal in a few easy steps.

Introduction

Looking for a quick and easy way to integrate virtual tours and immersive virtual reality into your website or blog? Use the EvoVR Web API provided by WeboBook.

EevoVr is a tool for creating and visualizing virtual tours with immersive virtual reality, it can be integrated into any site or portal with multiple accounts via API.

API integration

EvoVr consists of two parts, EvoVR Virtual Tour Creator and EvoVR Virtual Tour Player. The integration of EvoVR Virtual Tour Creator and EvoVR Virtual Tour Player is done separately.

EvoVR Virtual Tour Creator is the tool used to create and edit virtual tours. Integrates in the administrative part of the site, where ads or posts are created or edited.

EvoVR Virtual Tour Player is the player that visualizes virtual tours in front of the end user. It must be integrated in the public part of the site, where ads or posts are displayed to end users.

The architecture of EvoVR is built so that it can be integrated into any type of site, both in blogs or corporate sites and in large portals with multiple separate accounts.

EvoVR Virtual Tour Creator integration

There are three steps to add an EvoVR Virtual Tour Creator.

Editor integration should be in the admin panel of your site where your ads or posts are created and edited.

  1. Step 1: Add the CSS link.
  2. Step 2: Add the JS links, authenticate the application and specify the language.
  3. Step 3: Add an HTML tag and make the necessary settings.

Step 1: Add the CSS link

Copy and paste the <link> styles into the <head> section of your page.

<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://webobook.com/css/evovr.css"> 
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://webobook.com/css/evovr-preview.css">

Step 2: Add the JS links, authenticate the application and specify the language

Step 2-1: Place the following <script> at the bottom of your pages, just before the closing </body> tag, to enable them.

Important!

If you have integrated jQuery on your site, use the code from the "Without jQuery" tab.
If you do not have integrated jQuery on your site, use the code from the "With jQuery" tab.
In order for EvoVR to work, you need the jQuery library, but if you are already loading it on your site, you need to put the javascript link, which is without the jQuery library.
<script src="https://webobook.com/asset/as:VIEW_API_KEY"></script> - Without jQuery
<script src="https://webobook.com/asset/af:VIEW_API_KEY"></script> - With jQuery

<script src="https://webobook.com/asset/as:VIEW_API_KEY"></script>
<script src="https://webobook.com/api/asset/u:VIEW_API_KEY,EDIT_API_KEY,YOUR_LANGULAGE"></script>
<script src="https://webobook.com/asset/af:VIEW_API_KEY"></script>
<script src="https://webobook.com/api/asset/u:VIEW_API_KEY,EDIT_API_KEY,YOUR_LANGULAGE"></script>
To authenticate your application you need to get your API keys as described in Step 2-2. There are two API keys "VIEW_API_KEY" and "EDIT_API_KEY".

Step 2-2: Follow these steps to get API keys and verify the application:

  1. Go to the API Keys tab in Account settings.
  2. In the Domain name field, enter the name of the domain for which you want to generate API keys.
  3. Click Add to generate API keys for the specified domain.
  4. From the list below, copy the first API key from the View token column and paste it in place of "VIEW_API_KEY" in the two JS links you placed on your site.
  5. From the list, copy the second API key from the Edit token column and paste it in place of "EDIT_API_KEY" in the second JS connection.

Step 2-3: Set the application language.

To set the application language, replace "YOUR_LANGULAGE" with the corresponding value from the Language code column in the table below.

Language code The language
en English
bg Bulgarian

Step 3: Add an HTML tag and make the necessary settings

Step 3-1: Place the <html> tag on your page where you want the editor button to appear.

<div class="evovr-tour-editor" postid="POST_ID" showGadget="true" buttonColor="gray" showIcon="true" editText="Edit Virual Tour" createText="Create Virtual Tour"></div>

An important setting of the EvoVR Virtual Tour Creator is to submit a "POST_ID" to initialize the virtual tour.

The table below describes additional settings for customizing the EvoVR Virtual Tour Creator.

Step 3-2: Enter a value for postid and make the desired settings.

Submitting a value to postid is required, postid initializes the virtual tour.

For postid you can set a variable with the ID number of your ad or post. Put the variable in place of the "POST_ID".

Table with additional settings:

Demo

Integration in portals with multi-user access.

The EvoVR Web API can be integrated into multi-user applications. To separate individual users you need to submit the user id in place of "EDIT_API_KEY".
It is recommended to use a hash function such as hash("sha256", "EDIT_API_KEY");. The minimum characters to be sent for "EDIT_API_KEY", are 16.
The EvoVR Web API will prompt your individual users to create a WeboBook account and will connect each individual user to your client in the API.
In this way, each individual user will be able to independently manage their virtual tours.
