For those of you that remember, Konfabulator was the original widget API for OS X. Yahoo! bought it out, and it now lives on alongside the built in widgets in OS X.
I finally have a reason to install the Yahoo! Widget Engine, and that is the dotProject.net TaskTracker.
I have been evaluating dotProject (open source project management) as a replacement for Basecamp. So far, so good, too. This widget for dotProject is another bullet point for bullet point feature, and another reason to stop paying a monthly fee for Basecamp.
While the Basecamp Dashboard widget does show you more, the dotProject widget comes with one handy feature: It has a stop watch that allows you to track the time it takes for each task you have.
Major kudos to the developer of this widget.
