Widget system UI framework for N9 Harmattan
Editor: Andrew Flegg
MeeGo forum user "sfietkonstantin" has announced a widget framework for Harmattan. The framework runs as an app, and so appears in the multi-tasking dashboard, and is designed to accomodate any widget user interface (such as Maemo 5, Android, ...). He says, it is currently work in progress, source will be released in ~ 1 week if I have time. Even if I love the N950's UI with it's 3 pages, I'm a bit disappointed by the lack of widgets. So I decided to implement (yet another) widget system. The widget system tries to be universal, and tries to be able to mimic any widgets interface. Currently, it mimics Maemo 5 widgets but at the end it will be able to mimic HTC sense, Samsung TouchWiz ... Anything you want ... The only drawback is that it is just an app. Currently distributed without source, and as a binary, hopefully open sourcing it will increase confidence and get more contributors.
