Trying Dashcode

I just had a quick play around with Dashcode, the new “quick Dashboard widget IDE” included in OS X 10.5.


I was able to knock together a widget that shows the Dogear Nation podcast really quickly… the things that took the longest were getting the logo right in an image editor, and finding the right RSS URL to point the widget at! Having said that, I didn’t do much customisation beyond fiddling with colours and layout, so this is hardly an exhaustive test. No Javascript coding so far. I’ll have to look at it in more detail another time.

  1. Andy – I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at just how deep Dashcode can go if you’ll follow the trail a bit. Good stuff that. ~Gerald
