How to make/add/change Widgets?

Feb 29, 2008 at 6:57 PM
Firstly, this is a great project! Works really well and does exactly what we are looking for.

I am wondering how do we make, add or change widgets for this project?
I would also like to change the default layout of the first page and add a weather widget that supports Canadian cities.

Can you please help me with this?

Thanks in advance.

The default widgets and the widget list is defined in the Widgets table. You can add new widgets there and define which widgets are default and set their order.

Is the Widgets table located int he sql database, and if so where exactly can I find it?

If not, what filename is it that I can edit and also what are the steps needed to create a new widget?

If there also a repository of widgets for Dropthings, or a tutorial on how to make them?
I would like to make a few myself a contribute so others can use them as well.
