As the go-to platform for team collaboration and knowledge sharing, Atlassian’s Confluence provides a powerful set of features for creating and managing content. However, when you're using Confluence for documentation, release notes, or public knowledge sharing, the default look and feel of a Confluence space can often fall short when it comes to engaging users.
Recently Atlassian launched a new API called Embedded Pages for Confluence. With the help of this API we were able to create a new user experience around public Confluence pages: Spacecraft.
Spacecraft is a Confluence Cloud app that is offering a range of theming options to transform your public space into a visually inviting environment.
In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at some of the key features of Spacecraft, and how you can use them to enhance your Confluence space. So let's dive in and explore what this app has to offer!
Intuitive and Modern Theme Configuration with an Instant In-App Preview
One of the standout features of Spacecraft is its intuitive theme configuration that is suitable for Confluence beginners as well as seasoned pros. With Spacecraft, you can easily customize every aspect of your theme from logo, background, colors, and layout to fit your corporate identity. You can choose from four layout options to change the page’s general outline. With over 100 possible theme configurations (and more to come), you can always find a way to style your space to your liking.
Spacecraft has an instant in-app preview. This allows you to see your changes in real time, so you can quickly and easily make adjustments as needed. You can also toggle between desktop and mobile views. All of this saves you time and hassle and ensures that your Confluence space looks exactly the way you want it to.
Individual Space Theming
With Spacecraft, you can create individual themes for each of your public Confluence spaces. This means you can tailor the look and feel of each space to its specific purpose. Here are a few examples of spaces that where customized with Spacecraft:
In today's fast-paced world, it's important to have access to your knowledge base on the go. With Spacecraft's mobile support, you can easily open public Confluence spaces on your smartphone. This way you can make sure your customers and stakeholders can access relevant information from anywhere.
Great macro support
Spacecraft supports most Connect macros, making it easy to create visual appealing content. The app also works perfectly with the two popular Confluence apps Aura and Karma. This means you can enhance your public Confluence space with advanced content formatting features and custom page layouts. This is an example of a space that combines the apps Spacecraft, Aura and Karma:
Easy access for your customers
Spacecraft uses the top-level-domain “wikipage.io“ to grant access to your content. With this feature, users can easily access and navigate public Confluence spaces through a simple and user-friendly URL.
Additionally, you can create a customized sub-domain, which will allow you to have your own unique domain name such as “yourname.wikipage.io”. This will provide a more personalized experience for your customers and make it easier for them to access your content.
With Spacecraft, accessing public Confluence spaces has never been easier or more convenient.
To sum up
With its easy-to-use interface, extensive customization options, and full Connect macro support, Spacecraft is a great app for styling your public Confluence space. If you are looking to enhance your documentation, release notes, or public knowledge base, Spacecraft could be the app for you.
