Dash Clipping: Don’t wait for Leopard

August 9th, 2006

Dash Clipping is a universal widget tool that allows you to turn any part of any web page into a Dashboard widget with a couple of clicks. Download it here. Feedback to the usual address.
If this sounds familiar it’s because it’s a shameless rip-off of the new Web Clipping tool that’s due in Leopard and that I knocked together over the last 24 hours. If you watch the video on that page (and the keynote) carefully, you’ll realise all Apple’s doing is loading the whole web page but only showing part of it. There’s nothing clever about what they’re doing, and there’s nothing clever about my version either, though I did have to write part of it in Cocoa to get in working (you can almost do it with just an IFRAME, but not quite). (The icon and background were created in AppleWorks in all of 2 minutes and I cut a couple of other corners to get it done in one day, but it still does the job) — Graham, August 8th, 2006 9:10 PM.
