These are the info i got from the netvibes forum by Tariq KRIM. Just got this to be very interesting and wanted to share with you all……..
Netvibes Universal Widget API has been released at late 2007, before few months from today!
“We believe at Netvibes that UWA can really change the way we produce and develop widgets. We’ve been working hard to release it. As you know, the Universal Widget API will replace the Mini-Module API that was used on Netvibes.
The launch of the UWA effort starts with a new website, a great documentation and of course some cool examples. You will then be able to implement your widgets on Netvibes, and also to have them running on Google IG and Apple Dashboard. As promised, more platforms are currently in the process of being supported. The Opera and Vista support are just a few weeks away.
As you will experience, we have lead efforts to build a very simple API that let you leverage our Netvibes User Interface, and let you integrate HTML and Flash elements very easily.
Get started now! This is the place where you can find developer resources: UWA is now part of new Developer Network website. http://dev.netvibes.com/
A forum is already there to follow-up on your questions and needs; a developer blog is coming soon and there are tutorials and cool tips also in the forum, better check it out.
If you are not a developer, and you still want to find out how you can leverage the power of UWA for your business needs, you can contact at business [at] netvibes.com .
Join the widget revolution!
All developers are encouraged to create and build widgets with UWA !
Have fun and enjoy…………..
