	'partnerId': 1111,
	'widgetId': 1111,
	'width': 680,
	'height': 420
	'uiConfId': 0000000,
	'entryId': 'x_0000000',	
	'height': 300 // Will generate embed with "height" of 300px

This library uses Handlebars to manage the embed code templates and includes handlebars.runtime.js library. If your project already uses handlebars, you can remove that file from grunt.js file.

This library also uses JSON.strinify method which is supported nativaliy in modern browsers. If you need to support older browsers, please add the following code.

<!--[if lt IE 9]>
<script src="http://ajax.cdnjs.com/ajax/libs/json2/20110223/json2.js"></script>
