Coming Soon: dashboard widget dashboard widget coming...

The dashboard widget will work in Mac OS 10.4 (Tiger) and features the most recent posts refreshed every 15mins. As expected, clicking on the post will bring you to the relevant web page on the Tomorrow’s blog. Finally, they’re not exactly easter eggs, but clicking on the bottom text brings you “places”. I’m testing it on a bunch of friends right now, so stay tuned for the full release (don’t worry… before 2006).

Want to be a Tomorrow widget beta-tester?
Just leave a comment with a valid email address and I’ll send you a copy. Try it for a day then send feedback in the comments informing me of any problems and suggestions.

For interested developers: For some strange reason, I couldn’t get Tomorrow’s feedburner feed to cooperate with my widget so I took Tomorrow’s original Drupal feed and burned my own unique Feedburner feed. By using feedburner’s “Convert Format Burner”, I finally got a clean feed which works with the widget! As a bonus, this feedburner feed allows me to see the number of users for this widget through the no. of feed subscribers. Hooray!

  1. Brennan: Right now it seems to consume as much memory as Apple’s official dashboard widgets. That’s all I’m gonna say ­čÖé

    Mastermind: Tomorrow doesn’t have a high frequency of updates, but I think it’s a fair refresh timing (15min) for anyone interested in being “first to know” when an update really does occur.

    I am facing a problem with the Tomorrow RSS feed as mentioned in my post. I need help finding a “clean” RSS 1.0 feed… For some strange reason “Drupal on Feedburner” doesn’t seem to work for me.
