Dashboard in Mac OS X 10.4..
Look at the source code of Stickies widget for an example of how it's done. Here's a compressed version of the whole things including plists. (Thanks to Erik Veland for posting them)
I think comparing Dashboard to Konfabulator is a little ridiculous.. Instead of repeating what everyone is saying, I'll point you to this extremely well-written article by John Gruber
If you're a developer looking to build some decent, full-featured widgets such as Dictionary, etc., send me an email! I'm so itching to contribute some graphics.
that article is a very good read.
thank you for the link.
i can not wait to play with dashboard.
Dashboard does look amazing. I can't wait to play around and see what I can do. I'd love to make a weather widget (if it's not gonna be included in the final release).
I want that stock ticker!
Hey Adam and Phill, perhaps we could do some kind of Widget/Gadget contest at Macthemes, Or perhaps we could start a service for designing these widgets ;)
Jasper, I was def. thinking about that... just a design contest. The problem would be getting a few coders who would be proficient / experienced enough to realize them. There aren't any proven gadget programmers yet, unfortunately, and I would hate for a great design to just lie around collecting dust.
