Thank you for your review
Widgetarium has been discontinued
Email me when discounted: 

Widgetarium is an integrated development environment (IDE) for developing Dashboard widgets. It combines a programming editor that supports JavaScript, HTML and CSS with a packager that creates ".wdgt" packages, and a Dashboard emulator, allowing you to run and test your widget right in Widgetarium. The emulator includes support for most of the widget extensions, including system, launchURL, launchApplication, preferenceForKey/setPreferenceForKey, setCloseBoxOffset. It also includes prepareForTransition/performTransition (though these currently do nothing). You can also explicitly call your dragstart, dragstop, show, hide, focus, blur, more...

I used the demo (of an older version) of this program and it was fantastic. I made tonnes of widgets with relative ease. It is all you really need to make good quality dashboard widgets.

Version 1.0 will not launch with Error message "Unknown WebKit version - The Widget client support application does not exist for your version of OS X (build 417.11)". I suppose this means Widgetarium is not compatible with 10.4.6

How much does this cost and where do I buy it? The developer's site doesn't seem to have a purchase page.

so. this app seems like the coolest thing in the world to me. I am not a programer but do know html, css, and java fairly decently and this is all you need for a simple widget. for someone who really knows how to make a widget, this app seems like a perfect workspace. UI is real clean and well organized. for people like me who dont yet know how to bring a widget to life, it is surely going to teach me. so simple. so sweet. THANK YOu!
