Netvibes Widgets

This page is to show all of the Netvibes Widgets that I have developed or updated.

BBC News Headlines and BBC Sport Headlines

I wasn’t happy with the way the standard BBC News widget displayed the news – I just wanted something without tabs that would let me display the news in the same order that it is shown on the BBC website. So what these widgets do is take the BBC News and Sport RSS feeds and display a number of headlines and summaries (the number is configurable). Clicking the news item will open the relevant BBC page.

USD<->GBP exchange rate widget

This is a small widget to show the current US dollar and British Pound exchange rates. It also allows you to enter a value in dollars which will be converted into pounds. See my post on this widget for more information.

This widget is an updated version of the one created by FaziBear. I added functionality to allow the div with the ‘overlay’ class at the top of the page to be hidden, which gives a little extra usable space. See my post on this widget for more information.
