Writing desklets

Postby Morsus » Sat Oct 22, 2016 5:52 am

Okay so I found a hello world tutorial for writing desklets. I am interested in this so I just need some info on it. That is JavaScript right? Different than one we use to write browser applications, right? What kind of? Are there any more tutorials? I am currently looking into reading and writing to a txt file from desklet. Any help is welcome.
Thank you.

Desklets are written in JavaScript and uses CJS which is based on Gjs. Gjs are JavaScript bindings for GNOME and is based on Mozilla's JavaScript engine Spidermonkey.
