Calendar: Built in widget, with custom text size to make it more readable
Date and Time: Another built in widget.
Weather: Covered last time, it takes weather info from Yahoo and displays it.
ToDo List: A placeholder for now, but will display a particular shared note from Evernote that we can fill with important things we need to do.
Weasels!: Geckoboard has an image widget, so I wrote an endpoint that looks like a jpeg but fetches a random image from a person’s Flickr photostream and returns it. Every time the board refreshes, Tada! New image. In our case, it’s usually embroidery or ferrets.
Thanks for reading! If you like my writing, you may be interested in my book: Healthy Webhook Consumption with Rails
