Finally got around to messing around with creating a dashboard widget using Dashcode. Wow, the whole interface had a polish on it that you don’t find in most software, especially IDE’s. Very smooth, clean, and can pretty much just drag and drop anything that you like.
It makes creating certain types of widgets extremely simple. I made a quick RSS feed based widget in just a few minutes, with no tutorial. Eventually I had to tweak some .js and .css files a bit by hand, but that was very easy to get too as well.
I’m very much impressed with Dashcode, and won’t give a tutorial as there are already many great one’s online. Â It’s a great tool, now I just have to come up with some cool ideas for gadgets.
