I am using 1 year ubuntu as my main OS already and I feel comfortable with the enviroment and the tools it provides. I also used one screenlet to have my task manager or calendar on my desktop and have it connected directly with google calendar in order to track my todos.

But now I would like to make my own screen-let since I can't find one that will help me orgnize my stuff better, like a small little browser that fetches some webdata, or load a small html client in a screenlet. I am not sure how to start and I can't find any documentation on how to make my own. I have found this post but the documentation does not seem to work How do I write a Screenlet? Are screenlets dead and about to be substituted by something else? I am using ubuntu 12.04 at the moment on an Intel core I7.

thank you


The screenlets.org website is down, probably because it was unmaintained and had lots of spam. Currently you can find documentation in the Web Archive: http://web.archive.org/web/20130314075629/http://screenlets.org/index.php/Documentation
