WP-Appbox [appbox] Shortcode

The WP-Appbox shortcode is designed to create an app box within WordPress. This shortcode calls the function ‘wpAppbox_createAppbox’, which generates an app box based on the provided attributes. It checks if the current user is an admin, then begins to calculate the runtime. It creates new instances of the ‘wpAppbox_CreateAttributs’ and ‘wpAppbox_CreateOutput’ classes, and uses these to generate the app box. If this is the first time the shortcode is being used, it registers styles and loads fonts. It then calculates the total runtime and returns the generated output.
