Countdown Ticker

Add a real time countdown to your Ceros experience

This plugin is super handy if you want to have a timer built into your Ceros experience. It allows users to display a count down (or up) clock set to whatever you’re counting down, or up, to. NYE? Birthday celebration? Product launch? Seriously, anything.

How we did it

We loop through all the text components in the Ceros experience that have the relevant tag applied. Then, with a little help from Moment.js, we updated their contents every second with the amount of time between now and the time set in the custom HTML. We use the SDK payload of the text component to control how the time is formatted in it.
