widget.io streamlines the process of working with custom widgets in Streamelements. 
The default process requires users to manually copy and paste downloaded code into (or from, if you are a developer) the editor inside Streamelements, which is a very common source of errors. 

widget.io enables the user (or the developer) to select a ZIP archive with the source code, and the program will automatically set the widget up. In the same fashion, any custom widget can be automatically downloaded into one single ZIP archive that the developers can then redistribute.

v1.1 (Jan 18, 2023):
-- Added support for widget field data tab
-- Added support for widgets with missing files
-- Added widget package checks: errors and prompts manual upload for incorrectly set up widgets.
-- Fixed manual upload not working after reopening the window
-- Minor fixes

v1.0 (Jan 13, 2023):
-- Initial release
Risk impact

widget.io requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this extension. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

widget.io may not be trust-worthy. Avoid installing if possible unless you really trust this publisher.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Chrome extension may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Chrome extension reputation on Chrome Web Store, the amount of time the Chrome extension has been around, and other signals about the Chrome extension. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Chrome extension, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.

The manifest file declares the requirements and permissions that a Chrome extension will have access to. By reviewing the manifest, you may be able to determine if a Chrome extension is over-reaching (for example, if an extension is overriding your new tab page, or search provider, or requesting access to your web activities without any good reason).
