I’ve created my first Widget for Mac OS X. I started off creating it manually when I accidentally tripped over Dashcode, an application in Leopard that let’s you easily create your own widgets. It was up and running in a few clicks. Another couple of hours and it was ready to be released.
This widget displays today’s menu in the Exactum Unicafe restaurant in Helsinki. The whole week’s menu is viewable using the browse buttons at the bottom of the widget. This first version is really simple, but fully functional. In the near future I plan to extend it to support all Unicafes in Helsinki. UnicafeWidget is only available in Finnish.
The widget is free for download on the Projects page.
