Emoji Plugin

Do you like “Emoticons” on GitHub? This plugin allows to use same code on your CandyCane installation. This just first release of this. but icon sizing and input support may be done by Plugin update. This Plugin is NOT done by me. Yes this is a first plugin code from community! To use Emoticon, install this plugin from admin page, and write emoticon code like:

:smile: :+1: :octocat:

Polar Bear Installer and Postgres support

Quick installation is very strong point of CandyCane. This quick installer got 2 more great changes. First one is obvious. Cute Polar Bear will watch you while your 30 secondes installation. And seconde is more technical, it doesn’t appear on interface, but CandyCane and Installer now support PostgreSQL internally.


This is another JOKE plugin on CandyCane. But it also shows how to create CandyCane plugin and Plugin works really fine on CakePHP2 version of CandyCane.
