With Universal Content Puller you can pull content from pretty much anywhere, manipulate and filter it with transforms, then display it with a content display.

In its basic use, Universal Content Puller Elements provides an edit dialog for selecting an element and mapping data from the transform to the element.  As a developer, it is up to you to code your own element to format images and information and then select your element in the edit dialog.

Universal Content Puller Elements provides some basic elements as diagnostic aids and as examples of how to use Universal Content Puller Elements. The real power of Universal Content Puller Elements is when you provide your own elements for display. You can pull in any data from the content transform and use it however you like.
