Drag and drop creation of widgets



  • It would be handy if I could add text/web widgets by dragging relevant content onto the Freeter window (e.g. Dragging a URL from Safari)



  • @cmsj1 It would be impossible to 100% predict which widget does the user want to create with the dragged content. For example, the next version will have Webpage Opener Widget (it's a temporary name :)), so a dragged url can be used for both the webpage widget and the webpage opener widget. I thought of showing a contextual menu with widget options at the cursor position when the user drops the content on the dashboard. What do you think?



  • +1 for a contextual choice of widget :)



  • @alexk This would be a great feature, making it much faster to set up a window.

    A default widget could be set for each file type ( url, folder, etc ). That could then changed to another with your contextual menu once created, if required. Dropping multiple folders or urls simultaneouly would be cool, too. Even an ability to select all + change all.

    Hope that makes sense.
