Is a widget anything more than a webpage in a bundle?
As far as I can tell, all a widget is is a webpage that gets placed in a folder with an extension of .wdgt alongside an info.plist, icon.png, and default.png. The plist has the following data:
- Bundle Identifier
- Bundle Name
- Bundle Display Name
- Bundle Version
- Main HTML
- Close Box Inset X and Y (Optional - Assumed to be 0 otherwise?)
- Width and Height (Optional - Assumed based on Icon.png's dimensions otherwise.)
That's what this page leads me to believe, anyways:
But when I open up and look in some widgets, say the App Update widget, http://www.apple.com/downloads/dashb...appupdate.html
I see two things that look odd:
1 - A folder ending in .widgetplugin. What is this? It has what appears to be a template info.plist and InfoPlist.strings that was never filled out. Additionally it has an executable.
2 - plugin_src.zip? What is this?
The reason I ask is I'm looking to write my own better version of dashboard which can open all the widgets that were created for Apple's implementation of dashboard.
