From a developer’s perspective, the Symyx Notebook Home Page is a container of widgets. It manages the layout of widgets, and handles the persistence of their settings. Several widgets are provided with the application: one for creating new experiments, another for tracking work in progress, and an inbox widget for messages sent through the notebook. This out-of-the-box set can be supplemented by building custom widgets.
Several examples of custom widgets will be covered to demonstrate the basic concepts of widget development and the API they implement. We will also discuss best practices, and how to make your widget a good citizen of the Home Page.
