by Ryan Masuga
This week was a busy week on other projects for us, but, hey…look over there! Nine new add-ons!
Busy week for us here with projects other than devot:ee. We did manage to add a uniquie identifier for customers in the Order API. This should help developers identify customers from devot:ee in the event they ever change their username and/or email address.

MX Select Plus ($, for EE2) by Max Lazar
This add-on makes long, unwieldy select boxes much more user-friendly with Chosen plugin. It is also opens the option to the user to add new items into the list “on the fly”. You can setup to save new options on field level (to be available for choosing in all entrees) or just once. Support Matrix-like fields, Low Variables, SafeCracker.
MX Lone Star (for EE2) by Max Lazar
MX Lone Star is small fieldtype which you can use to replace standard checkbox. But the real power of this fieldtypes is opened in Matrix-like fields - you can limited choosing in this fieldtype per row or/and per column. Look on screenshots and video.

The YQL plugin will make it easy to consume and cache your YQL queries directly from your ExpressionEngine templates.

Show Once (for EE2) by Yuri Salimovskiy (IntoEEtive)
Show Once is the module for ExpressionEngine 2 that allows showing certain content to a user only once (during their first visit).
JC Redirect (for EE2) by Jensa
Needed a redirect after login based on group_id and couldn’t make other plugins work since they all send the redirect when the plugin is parsed the first time. This one does that to, but allows you to set different locations for group_id’s 1 to 10 as well as a default. That way it’s dead easy to use.
