Package "screenlets"

This package belongs to a PPA: Screenlets stable

Name: screenlets


Widget-like mini-applications for GNOME
Screenlets are small owner-drawn applications (written in Python) that can be
described as "the virtual representation of things lying/standing around on
your desk". Sticky notes, clocks, rulers, ... the possibilities are endless.

The goal of the Screenlets base-classes is to simplify the creation of fully
themable mini-apps that each solve basic desktop-work-related needs and
generally improve the usability and eye-candy of the modern composited

* Real applications, no HTML-"widgets"
* Easy to use, easy to develop
* Full compositing support
* Works with any composited X desktop (compiz, xfce4, ...)
* Works also on non-composited desktop
* Included ability to apply themes (SVG, PNG or mixed)
* Fully scalable when using SVGs
* Embedded drag&drop-support
* Automated storing of options (using ini or GConf)
* Controllable through customizable D-Bus service
* Can be used together with compiz' widget-plugin to create a
Dashboard-like feature as seen on OS X
* Uses Cairo and GTK2 for drawing and windowing
