Dashcode Tips And Tricks

I’ve been using Dashcode more and more over the last couple of days, I have really taken the ball and ran with it. I have learnt lots of little tricks and tips that I want to share with you. Developing a widget for the Dashboard can range from the very simple to the very hard. If you use the pre-built templates you can get a new widget up and running in a couple of seconds. You can then advance your skills to make it more accustomed to your site. You can then take it even further adding in more features. The more features you add, the more complex your widget becomes and the hard it is to code, but the better the result. I am by know means a good widget coder. But theses tips are designed to help a new user make their widget that bit more unique.

Mac Tricks And Tip Widget

After messing about with Dashcode for quite a while and just generally playing I have made my own widget for Mac Tricks And Tips. At the moment it is a basic RSS feed widget. Every time a new post is made on this blog and the feed is updated the widget will display the information. At the moment it will show full articles for the site although scalable post sizes will be a new feature in an upcoming rendition. I didn’t like the way Dashcode did the original article lengths, I haven’t yet found an alternative.
