Screenlets

Not Rated
Alternative To: Apple Dashboard, Yahoo! Widgets

Description
Screenlets are small owner-drawn applications (written in Python, a very simple object-oriented programming-language) that can be described as "the virtual representation of things lying/standing around on your desk". Sticknotes, clocks, rulers, ... the possibilities are endless. The goal of the Screenlets base-class(es) is to simplify the creation of fully themeable mini-apps that each solve basic desktop-work-related needs and generally improve the usability and eye-candy of the modern Linux-desktop.

Screenlets can be used together with compiz' widget-plugin to create a Dashboard-like feature as seen on OSX tiger.
