For those of us who use MacOS X 10.4 and its later updates, we have found great uses for Dashboard widgets. Although there are some neat widgets available, none watches the RSS feed for this blog. So while playing with Dashcode, Apple’s beta development tool for creating widgets that will be included with MacOS X 10.5 Leopard, I created a widget to display the RSS feed in Dashboard. Not bad for the first project using Dashcode!
If you use MacOS X 10.4 and its later updates, you can download the Coin Collectors’ Blog RSS Widget here. If you use it, please let me know what you think. Enjoy!
