Widget-like mini-applications for GNOME

Screenlets are small owner-drawn applications (written in Python) that can be described as "the virtual representation of things lying/standing around on your desk". Sticky notes, clocks, rulers, ... the possibilities are endless.

The goal of the Screenlets base-classes is to simplify the creation of fully themable mini-apps that each solve basic desktop-work-related needs and generally improve the usability and eye-candy of the modern composited Linux-desktop.

Features:

 * Real applications, no HTML-"widgets"
 * Easy to use, easy to develop
 * Full compositing support
 * Works with any composited X desktop (compiz, xfce4, ...)
 * Works also on non-composited desktop
 * Included ability to apply themes (SVG, PNG or mixed)
 * Fully scalable when using SVGs
 * Embedded drag&drop-support
 * Automated storing of options (using ini or GConf)
 * Controllable through customizable D-Bus service
 * Can be used together with compiz' widget-plugin to create a
   Dashboard-like feature as seen on OS X
 * Uses Cairo and GTK2 for drawing and windowing
