Kludget supports UWA widgets
Having a widget format that can be exported to any of the major widget platform sure helps adoption of our massive collection of widgets. UWA adoption is even further helped when developers implement one of the supported format into their own project.
That’s exactly what happened last month with Kludgets. Kludgets (short for “Klumsy, Lame, Ugly, Dumb, but Good Enough” ) is a new, open-source and multiplatform (Windows and Linux) widget engine, which aim is to become a best-of-breed widget engine, taking inspiration from the best features of other platforms.
As such, its widget format is a clone of the Apple Dashboard’s. And since UWA widgets can be exported to the Dashboard format, it was only a matter of time before the Kudgets developer took advantage of it! As they write in their blog, it only takes a handful of steps to get any UWA widget from Ecosystem to work on this new engine.
We’re really happy to see further proof that the UWA format’s versatility can be once more proven by this open-source project, and we wish it a swift and successful version 1.0!
